Glasses/glass bowls for soup, salads, desserts, etc.

I'm looking to buy glasses/glass bowls to show off a wide range of dishes (think gazpacho and pudding). Any suggestions?

                LOL. Yes, they have gotten used for their stated purpose. It's just nice to know you can use them for other things too.
