Fluted Glass Dessert Bowls

I picked up a couple of these little tapered glass bowls from Crate & Barrel last month. They call
them Jive Cocktail Glasses but are rather large and cumbersome to drink out of. They're perfect as elegant little dessert bowls however, sparkling with a style that harks back to an earlier era of grandeur — deco maybe? Two very unusual features of this glassware — the light-scattering flanks are fluted on the inside rather than the more usual exterior — making it smooth and pleasant to hold in your hand; it doesn't seem to have an adverse impact the contents either. Even more interestingly, when viewed from above these bowls aren't circular, but have a subtle oval rim — how cool is that?
