You got the set of four when you bought a stereo or television from the Curtis Mathes Showroom's from the 1960's to the 1980's. In the earl 1960's the sell would not only include the set of glasses but also a nice bottle of your favorite whiskey or scotch. If you were a great customer you got a case of your favorite whiskey or scotch.

Alcoholic beverage distilled from grain may not have been a good thing for a man to come home with with a new stereo or television back then in some areas of the nation. They came in a very nice box which they would gift wrap if the the television or stereo was a gift for a wife or loved one.
