I'm a clumsy oaf. Help me replace this glass.

Trying to replace a vintage-ish glass I broke. Can someone help me with descriptive terms so I can find it on ebay?

Here is a shot of another glass from the set. I didn't buy the glasses myself - they belong to a friend, and I knocked one over a little while ago.

looks like a "parfait glass" to me

It looks like an old fashioned soda fountain/soda jerk glass. I'd look for that sort of thing.

Looks like an ice cream parfait glass to me

Aren't they commonly used for ice cream kind of drinks, like root beer floats? I can picture it with a straw and a long-handled spoon in there.

'Parfait glass' may be a useful search term. This looks pretty close, actually.

Isn't this it?

"Vintage soda fountain glass" turned up this and this.

In addition to eBay, you might try the vintage offerings at Etsy.

I found this by searching under Etsy Vintage for "parfait glass." I can't tell if it's very similar, or if it's the same glass. Can you?

Sorry, you asked for descriptive terms. If that Etsy listing is the same glass
(or even if it's just similar), then it gives you some search terms, too.
