The English "nonik" pint glasses drunk from a couple of times during the film were introduced in the late 1940s. China mugs would have been most common in the era of the film, but that would have made the see-through-the-bottom feature relevant to those parts of the film impossible. A straight sided conical glass would have been possible at the time.
