BOTH glasses are REAL. The one on the left is the OLD STYLE Glencairn that was the SODA / LIME composition ( original composition that Raymond Davidson released ), which was thicker and heavier, and was phased out a few years ago. The etching on the bottom was changed when the one on the right was released; the etching was made bolder on the newer one to immediately distinguish the old from the new. The Glencairn on the right is LEAD FREE composition and much lighter.
Both are REAL. I hope this clears up the confusion.
Thanks for the info. Me and a shop owner here in town thought it was fake cause he had never seen one like that before and just thought it fake cause of it being so heavy. Thanks for clearing that up. Sorry about any mis-information i spreaded, I didn't know. I will edit my other post here in a min.
