“Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!”

Bodum Classic Captain Picard Glasses

Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation should certainly remember that phrase along with these cups.  These are the words used by Captain Picard to order his beverage from the replicator and the cups he drank it from.

These cups were produced by Bodum circa 1980’s.  Bodum started in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1944 by Peter Bodum. In the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, Bodum was known for producing unique industrial designs to many of their pieces.

This set was seen today at the Summerlin Savers.  The four piece set is only $1.99, which is an incredible bargin as they are no longer being produced and online websites are selling them for $50.00 (if you can even still find them).  Any fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation would certainly appreciate these gems.
