Cordial glasses, also known as liqueur glasses, are the smallest glasses in a set of stemware. Although some cordials are larger than others, the larger size holds approximately 2 ounces of liqueur, and the smaller size, called a pony, serves about 1 ounce. This set of Tiffany cordials would be classified as a pony glass. Cordial glasses were among the most expensive of Tiffany studios' stemware, priced at $120 for a dozen, about the price of a Tiffany lamp.
