This is a funny, vintage soda fountain glass! It is made like many of the old malt glasses albeit a little smaller. Across the top of the clear glass in red it reads; Jr. Awful Awful - "It's A Drink" - Awful Big - Awful Good. Each section repeats as it goes around so the opposing sides are the same. As it says, this is a junior size. I have actually had a full size Awful Awful and it really was a big glass. This has wide, rounded vertical ribs that give it and optical appearance. The Awful-Awful name has been used by several creameries but was particularly known by the recipe used by Friendly's restaurant begining in the 1940's.
It measures about 3" in diameter at the top and 2 1/4" at the base and about 5 1/4" tall. It is in good condition with minimal wear and no chips or cracks.
