The champagne coupe is a shallow, broad-bowled, saucer shaped stemmed glass generally capable of containing 4 to 8 US fl oz (120 to 240 ml) of liquid.  Legend has it the shape of the coupe was modelled on the breast of French queen Marie Antoinette and our Maude, but the glass was designed in England over a century earlier especially for sparkling wine and champagne in 1663.    The coupe was fashionable in France from its introduction in the 1700s until the 1970s,  and in the United States from the 1930s  to the 1980s. 
When the British, for example, an ambivalent, episodic, beer-drinking culture, go to France, an integrated, wine-drinking culture, they exhibit a tendency to drink wine in beer quantities and display all of the behavioural excesses associated with their native drinking patterns, with the result that young British tourists "are now renowned in France and elsewhere in Europe for their drinking and drunkenness" (McDonald, 1994). In Spain, by contrast, the young males appear more sensitive to alien cultural influences, and have adopted, along with beer-drinking, the anti-social behaviour patterns of their beer-drinking guests.
