Each one stands 4 3/4 inches high.  There is one in each of the following glazes:  Mountain Blue, Vermont Green, White, and Tawny Brown. The shape was designed by Japanese designer Yusuke Aida while employed by David Gil at Bennington Potters. This is part of the Classic Line which is shown in a 1966-67 catalogue in the Cunningham book and in a 1968 brochure on the website Modish.net.


One easy way to identify this line is by the handle. If the shape number is between 1601-1683 and it has this loop handle, it is an Aida design.


This line came in the following colors: Mountain Blue, White, Vermont Green, Rust, Tawny Brown. They are all in excellent condition.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"


These objects surely show clearly both his genius and his intent. Add it to your Mid-century American Studio Pottery collection today.  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It is from the 1959-1960 period when Gil  included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


This square 8 inch diameter trivet / plaque was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as 1535, a trivet which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. This piece is shown in the 1964 catalogue as and is titled there Eggs. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. I recently learned that the six 8 inch square flat tiles were all designed by Gloria Gil, David's first wife with whom he started the company in 1948.


It features 6 eggs in various stages. Done in an abstract stylized manner, the eggs are molded in relief and the incised areas are glazed in a very dark green and black. 


The back of the trivet/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It retains all four original rubber feet which protects the flat surface upon which one sets it. It is signed 1535 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT. It is in excellent vintage condition.


Bennington Potters is among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.  Here is some information I found online by the  Talbot Hamilton Group (http://www.corellecorner.com/home.html)


about Centura:  Available from late 1962 to 1977, Centura Tableware offered outstanding break resistance combined with the appearance of quality porcelain.  It carried a three year warranty against chips, cracks, breaks and crazing, a promise that no other dinnerware brand could make.  Centura's innovative glazed glass-ceramic formula is quite different from Corning Ware's composition.  Corning Ware cookware has extraordinary resistance to heat shock, but it is not immune to breakage from impacts.  Centura's heat-resistance is comparable to that of Pyrex; it may be used in the oven, but not on the stovetop.


Centura cannot be used in the microwave, and although that was not important when it was developed, by the mid 1970s this limitation would make Centura seem impractical.  When Corelle combined the benefits of good break-resistance, lighter weight and lower cost, plus microwave capabilities, its popularity eclipsed that of Centura as well as every other brand of everyday dinnerware.


Centura Tableware's discontinuance was announced July 1977, following the launch of Corelle's Expressions Livingware line that spring.


This particular pattern is called Summerhill. It debuted in 1970. It is a vivid yellow & orange floral, also designed by Cynthia Gerow. This pattern was discontinued in 1976 0r 1977.  This second version of the line had the floral pattern on the side of the bowls. This coupe shape as it is known was all the rage in the 1950s-1970s.


Each bowl is marked on the bottom:  Centura by Corning, Corning, NY USA. Baking only. No Microwave.  


So, whip up some bread pudding or a crumble and serve a tasty retro midcentury treat.  Price is for the set. They are all in excellent vintage condition.

This particular glaze came in three color variations: Lime Decorated, Orange Decorated, and Blue Decorated. Created by the brilliant Alrun Osterberg Guest, this is an up-and-coming line. It was produced only in 1971-1972. Alrun Guest (1942-2012) came to Haeger Potteries in 1969 from Berlin Germany. I consider her in the ranks of Eva Zeisel, an incredibly talented designer and ceramic engineer. 


The shape is a standard Royal Haeger shape. It is the #4143 shape which stands 9 inches tall. Its original price was $6.00 as can be seen on page 151 of the David Dilley Haeger book where this line can be seen in a 1971 Haeger catalog.


Add it to our Royal Haeger or Mid-century pottery collection today.  8 inch Madame Alexander Swiss girl doll, No. 394 has a Maggie face, blonde wig styled in braids with red ribbons under a green Tyrolean hat with red ribbon, and moving green eyes. She is a bending knee walking doll from approximately 1966. The walking mechanism works and her head moves from side to side. She has lighter coloring. She has her small original hang tag, but no box. Her clothes are all original. Besides her hat she is also wearing her Tyrolean dress with a full red felt skirt and white bodice, white lace apron, white petticoat with red rickrack edging, white pantaloons trimmed with red bows, white socks, and original black slip-on cloth shoes with gold buttons. She is holding a bouquet of flowers. This adorable doll is in excellent condition. Her outfit is complete, but the elastic is slightly stretched, though the clothes still stay up. The white white has turned ivory with age. Expand listing to view all photographs.  This Notre Dame Fighting Irish 16 ounces beer or bar glass stands 6 inches tall.  On one side, one sees the blue ND symbol over the words Notre Dame in gold. On the other side in green is the Fighting Irish man and the words in blue Fightin' Irish.  On the side near the bottom of the glass it reads OFFICIALLY LICENSED PRODUCT.


The glass is in great vintage condition. I am not sure if it is from the past 15 years or older than that. I do know that Notre Dame alumni love their school!  So, if you are an alumnus of Notre Dame or know someone who is, this is a great little gift or stocking stuffer.  


Add it to your collegiate barware collection today.  Open up a bottle and pour.  This preowned Gund teddy bear is 14 inches tall.

This outfit is most likely commercially made for teddy bears. The bear is cleaned but used and free of bad smells. The labels says it is washable in cold water. Preowned and gently used. Bear is very cuddly and the perfect decoration for July 4th. Expand listing to view all 3 photographs.

This milk glass body line of glassware often carries a label identifying it as Mar-Crest. Marcrest is actually a name brand not the name of the manufacturer. It is a Product line created by a retail chain called Marshall-Burns, a division of Technicolor, operated out of Chicago. The line contained both stoneware, dinnerware,  and glassware. The items were made by many different companies both all carried the Mar-Crest name.


This particular pattern of an abstract space age design done in turquoise and gray is referred to as "Blue Heaven". The glass itself was made by Anchor Hocking under its Fire-King line though the cereal bowls are not marked Fire-King.

Helen Kish designed this doll. Neela, has dark coloring, brunette hair drawn back in a very long braid with a gardenia flower, painted brown eyes, and golden earrings. She is wearing an elaborate long silk orange sari with silver accents, a golden necklace, and other silver and gold jewelry including arm and ankle bracelets. The preowned set comes mint and sealed inside its original heavy cardboard box that opens like a book to reveal the doll on one side and the book on the other. The doll has her hang tag. This doll, as others in this collection did not come with undergarments as she was intended for display. She represents a girl in India in the 1930s when it struggled for freedom after over 200 years of British rule. Her outfit its a wedding costume for her sister's wedding when Neela was 12 years old and recognized as a woman. The box has minor dings on the edge, but has never been opened.

Wallace was a gifted artist, whose early work included mosaic designs built from inlaid metal and plastic materials. Guthrie developed the technology further, and began Couroc company, which produced heavy, durable plastic trays with inlaid designs.


Guthrie Courvoisier had learned about plastic during World War II, when he was a contractor who manufactured certain plastic parts for military aircraft. (Plastics were essential to the war effort, for their rather unique qualities.) Like nearly all wartime plastics, Courvoisier's were probably jet-black, unlike the multicolored bakelite of decades prior.


In the mid-1950's the company's sales picked up, and it already had a few different designs in its product line. Sales seem to have been mostly in the California area at this time.


The company made a special effort to hire local artists for their design work. As the company slowly grew, it created numerous designs, and began expanding its product line beyond merely trays, so that customers could buy matched sets of trays, glasses, ice buckets, and even napkins. In the 1970's Couroc exploded in popularity, selling well in stores across the nation.

 

By the mid-1980’s, Couroc's popularity had dropped, and the company was shifting from producing items for the general public, to making promotional items (for sales to corporations or organizations commemorating special events.) In the 1990's, it turned almost exclusively to promotional items.


This Couroc center handled tidbit tray is in the famous Roadrunner pattern.  It features three of the cool birds running around the center of the tray.  On the back is the original gold foil paper label which reads:  Couroc serving pieces are cherished gifts because of their variety and beauty of design. Hand inlaid by master craftsmen, shells, coins, woods, and metals are fused into satin black phenolic. They are impervious to alcohol or boiling water. Wash with mild soap and water.


There is also an in-relief molded signature in the piece itself.  There are four very cool feet so that the piece sits absolutely flat on the table. The handle is brass plated. The piece is in excellent vintage condition.

This particular pattern of an abstract space age design done in turquoise and gray is referred to as "Blue Heaven". The glass itself was made by Anchor Hocking under its Fire-King line though some mugs are not marked Fire-King.


This great retro vintage coffee mug stands  3 3/4 inches tall.  It is 3 1/4 inches across at the top. What a great addition to your Eames era or Mid-century home!  This great example of the Art Deco sensibilities of the Noritake mold makers and decorators is amazing.  Although the practical utilitarian purpose for this dish is as a lemon slice server for tea, the design vaults it into a totally different category as an art object.  


Measuring 7 inches long x 6 1/4 inches wide, this could hold a lot of lemon slices.  


What is really striking about this piece is the restraint with which the decorators designed it.  The bold back outlines on the figural berry and leaf handle draw the eye, but it is the touch of mint green under the black handle which pops.  Noritake Art Deco pieces with figural elements have been popular for a long time.  This is a great example of this technique.


It is signed on the back with the standard Green Wreath Noritake mark. Add it to your Noritake Art Deco collection today.  This large Noritake Nippon cake plate measures 9 1/2  inches across from the tip of the handle to the other handle. It is a standard Noritake shape, but it is unusual to see it NOT signed with the post-1921 Noritake mark but with lesser known green cherry mark. I would place this piece in the 1925-1930 time period as it is an interesting mix of Victorian flowers with the scarce pearl luster. The most interesting part of the decoration is on the rim where the use of negative space creates designs in white which is really the underglaze. Notice the way the flowers start in the blue luster rim and continue onto the pearl luster center ground.


It is very practical and functional piece of china and is ready for your holiday table.  The three floral cartouches are all hand-painted. 


It is in fair vintage shape. One can see a good amount of wear on the center ground when one tips the plate to the light. No chips or cracks though.  Add it to your Nippon or Noritake collection today.  Each coaster is 5 inches long. The cork middle is 3 inches wide.  Each wild and funky Fish coaster sits on three small feet.  


How fun for your Mad Men bar or rec room!  Pour some martinis and protect your Eames era furniture by using these retro Fish Lucite coasters.

This set of 6 Color-Glo coasters was most likely made by the West Bend Aluminum Company of West Bend, Wisconsin. They match exactly the colors in a set of aluminum tumblers by West Bend which is the original box. 


Each coaster measures 3 1/2 inches wide and is in shiny anondized aluminum which was very popular in the 1950s-1960s.  They must not have been used as they are in excellent condition.


The colors are silver, gold, red, cobalt blue, pumpkin orange, and a iight chartreuse color!


They are ready for your Mad Men rec room or bar.  Stir up a gin and tonic and slide a coaster under it.  They would also look great with a Midcentury tall tumbler called a "zombie" filled with lemonade or iced tea.

Gemco's products include glass food dispensers of all kinds as well as storage containers and handy kitchen aids. They are normally signed with a lower case g for GEMCO.  Sometimes one also finds a a W on top of the G on smaller pieces as on these shakers. The W most probably stands for WARE as the line was formally known as Gemco Ware.


This salt and pepper set matches the Crazy Daisy pattern by Corelle. 


Gemco also made official licensed products under the brand name Corning Coordinates For Corelle. The company has also produced matching accessories in clear glass for other dinnerware manufacturers, like Pfaltzgraff.

This type of solid milk glass decorated glass belonged to a line that Consolidated dubbed Con Cora, deriving from the first few letters of the names Consolidated and Coraopolis, the town near Pittsburgh where Consolidated made glass.


Milk glass became immensely popular after World War II. Almost every American glass company put out its version. Westmoreland, Imperial are the better known names associated with this glass. This line was Consolidated's entry into the crowded marketplace.


Dating from the 1950s to the early 1960s, most Consolidated Con Cora items were decorated in one of the three most popular lines:  Ivy, Violet, and Rose. 


 This #4038 shape piece is decorated in the 1384G decoration: the Pine Cone decoration, a creation of Helen Mixter. It is not signed by the decorator. Two pinecones are featured on a horizontal branch on the front. The back has a section of branch but no pine cones.  There is a mustard yellow paint rim band around the neck of the piece.  The vase measures 9 1/2 inches tall. It features the "button" on the bottom which is a trademark Consolidated mold feature.  It is also iridized to highlight the colors of the piece. It is in excellent condition.

He is self taught. This studio glass artist has put out a limited amount of work over the past 33 years. He stopped blowing glass around 1990 and didn't start blowing again until 1999. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna who is responsible for all the finish work on the pieces. I had an email from Terry and Donna in 2002 stating that he doesn't think it would be fair to the collectors to make any of the same things again. They decided in 2006 to make glass again, but they are not going to make anything that they have made in the past. They pledge to develop new colors. He's a great artist with VERY few early pieces out there. This toothpick holder is in mint condition and is signed Terry Crider and dated 1976 on the base. That is the sane year after he started blowing glass commercially! This early piece has the earliest signature with the word Terry on the top, then the date 1976, then the last name Crider on the second line.  It is the only one I have seen with this arrangement.


This Terry Crider 1976 TP is done in a highly irridescent amethyst base glass with 4 thick iridized white pulled feathers all of which are iridized. I like that each of the pulled feathers has its own character. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 


This toothpick holder stands about 2 1/2 inches high. The top rim is 1 7/8 inches wide. It is a fantastic piece of American 20th century art glass! It is in perfect condition.


I am a long time member and past President (1988) of the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Club. I guarantee the authenticity of this TP.

This fabulous Pyrex Art Deco 1 cup beverage server stands 4 1/4 inches tall to the top of the cherry red plastic top handle.  The black plastic handle and the chrome band with a chased wave design in the chrome scream Art Deco.


It is shown on page 58 of the Mauzy 3rd edition Pyrex book.  This all glass teapot / beverage server was the forerunner of the beloved FLAMEWARE.

It was made during the 1948-1960 time period when Gil used only the words Design Cooperative, or in this case only the letters CO OP around the hand mark AND david gil BENNINGTON.


David Gil Coop Design 7 inch teardrop standing bass playing man in a dark green black glaze, with the COOP Man/hand logo. rough unglazed rim, but not signed David Gil. No Raymor label like the piano man. Excellent condition.


I recently learned that when Gil decided to mark his works with shape numbers, he started with the number 1300. However, if an earlier design was to remain in production, they marked it with a number starting with 1200. This explains the numbering and mark on the transition pieces.


They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.  2013 Vogue 7.5 inch hard plastic Vintage Reproduction A Very Ginny Thank You doll, No.13SL118 is part of the Diana Vining Greeting Card Collection.

"Hand-crafted Pottery Since 1940

Owing to the abundance of ancient clay deposits in the region, Louisville has been a center of pottery-making for generations. Out of this proud tradition, Mary Alice Hadley established one of Louisville’s most iconic and well-known potteries. The story begins in the early 1900’s. Mary Alice Hadley was born into a family of clay tile makers where her knowledge of working with clay first developed. Exhibiting an early interest in art and design, she ultimately became a widely recognized painter, winning numerous awards and acclaim from New York to Los Angeles.


By the late 1930’s Mary Alice Hadley began melding her artistic talent with her knowledge of clay ware. In 1939, Mrs. Hadley made dishes for her houseboat on the Ohio River. The creative result was a set of a custom dishes that caused such a stir among her friends and acquaintances that the idea for a business was born. Supplying those early requests provided wide circulation for her hand-crafted pottery and soon orders began to arrive from across the country. With the help of her husband, George, the Hadley Pottery Company was formed early in 1940.


In 1944, George Hadley purchased a building in the Butchertown area of Louisville as a birthday present for Mary Alice. The building, constructed in 1848, has been home to a wool mill, a candle factory and a cordage mill and for 65 years has served as the production location, factory salesroom and offices of Hadley Pottery Company. Many pieces of original art created by Mary Alice Hadley are still on display at the historic structure on Story Avenue, including several wall murals all hand-painted by Mary Alice herself.


The business prospered, attracting collectors from across the nation and around the world. The warm and whimsical designs that Mary Alice Hadley created have attracted multitudes of fans over the last 70 years and are still finding their way into the hearts of new Hadley Pottery enthusiasts every day. She worked at the Pottery until her death in 1965. George Hadley continued to run the business until it was sold in 1979 to Louisville natives, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth W. Moore. In September 2009, new partners joined the Hadley Pottery ownership group, but operations remain largely the same as they were when the company was started. The creative inspiration that Mary Alice Hadley brought to the ware still lives today."


These funky and celebratory coasters carries the words "Here's to You" and "Congratulation & Best Wishes".  They are signed M.A. Hadley on the reverse.  I don't know if these coasters are vintage or contemporary. You be the judge. I do know they are listed in current inventory on the M. A. Hadley website at $9.75 each.  


 This early vintage Pyrex red measuring cup features a font in red  not seen on more modern versions. It also has a different pouring lip than the commonly found versions.  It carries the shape number #508 C-12 and holds one cup.  


It does have some wear to it as it was used and loved.

This Edwards Star Gumps blue 5 jewel enamel plate measures 9 3/4 inches wide.  


Engraved on the back of this platter is: EDWARDS STAR ORIGINAL  for Gump's San Francisco.  The dominant colors palette of this stunning bowl are blues and greens highlighted by white.  The gold background shows off the greens and blues nicely. The golden 5 jewels are surrounded by royal blue sides. The center is a pop art explosion of green, blue, and white.


The platter retains the original 3 felt circles on the bottom ; it can be displayed flat on a table or on its side in a stand.  The platter measures 9 7/8 inches in diameter; 1 1/2 inches rise from the table.  It is in excellent shape with no stress fractures or internal cracks to the jewels as often happened in the firing process. A great San Francicso and Mid-century collectible. Add it to your enamel collection today.  Annemarie Davidson learned her enameling craft first from the great Doris Hall (1907-2001) in Cambridge, MA in 1957. In California she continued her studies with Curtis Tann. Her combination of geometric and organic form in her designs culminated in her most celebrated abstract designs, her Jewel line which features pieces of glass used to create free-form organic shapes which she calls Jewels. She also uses a sgraffito technique, incising straight lines from the center of her plate with the sharp point of a dart. Now in her late 80s, she no longer produces work today as of 2011 I have been told.


This 9 inch diameter low bowl, most likely from the 1960-1961 time period, is a good example of an earlier piece as it does not features the lines usually found in the Jewel line. It also has a very unusual arrangement to the glass Jewels. This plate features 3 large yellow gold jewels separated by 3 smaller light and darker pumpkin orange jewels, all symmetrically arranged on the plate in a triangle between each major Jewel. This particular example is unusual in that the two colors of jewels used are not in high contrast to each other as on many of her pieces. 


The back of the plate has the remnants of the gold paper label and is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiial.  The label would have read Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. This particular signature is an earlier one based on the fact that the curves at the right top of the letter D are not perfectly square as on her later signatures.


It is in very good vintage condition with just two tiny areas of rim roughness. It is a scarce piece from her early period.


The work of Annemarie Davidson was included in the seminal exhibit titled Painting with Fire which opened in Jan 2007 at the Long Beach Museum of Art. She was one of 30 enamelists included with a one page entry on her life and work. Her page is page 266 of the catalogue.  scarce signed 1972 Mark Peiser art glass vase.  Treasure Craft 11 inch tall Matador figurine

Alvino Bagni (1919-2000) founded Bagni Ceramiche in Lastra a Signa in August 1946. During the 1950s and 1960s he worked closely with Irving Richards of Raymor, the American distributor, as well as with their competitor, Rosenthal-Netter. The United States became Bagni’s largest market with over 80 percent of the company’s production going there. Thousands of modern designs were produced over four decades. Though it is not possible to categorize Bagni’s work easily, the wax-resist technique, impressed geometric shapes, mottled brown or green glazes and high-relief geometric forms applied to the surface are hallmarks of his work. Many designs were also glossily glazed in bright colors in simple stylized patterns such as banding or swirling lines. (Mark Hill, Alla Moda). 


Red clay was used from the late 1940s-1950s, before a finer white clay was used. Bagni considered his "Sea Garden" design to be his version of Londi’s Rimini Blu design. The factory closed in 1992.


As far as signatures, production destined for Raymor or Rosenthal-Netter was often marked in different ways. The first and most common Bagni for Raymor mark is a painted mark comprised of an ‘R’ for Raymor, followed by a three or four digit number. This number is probably Raymor’s internal stock number. The second way is a Raymor paper label printed with ‘BAG’ and a similar number. Some Bagni pieces for Rosethal-Netter were marked with two digits, followed by a slash, followed by two digits. This was often accompanied by a paper label (Mark Hill, Alla Moda, page 216)


Bagni's Hallmark Design was the "Sea Garden" line. The line started in 1960 and was inspired by ocean flora and fauna.  The semi-matte, dripped, and mottled brown, green, blue, and beige colors are different on each piece. During the 1970 the tones became lighter due to a change in the law restricting certain chemicals integral to the original Sea Garden glaze. 


This 9 5/8 inch wide Sea Garden bowl is from the 1960-1970 period as it has the deep colors of the original glaze. 

The low bowl has graceful sloping sides. It is in excellent condition. Fill it with fruit or nuts or any holiday decoration.

Made by the Anchor Hocking Company in the 1960s, the Lido line is yet another of the popular crinkle glassware so prevalent at the time. Like the Morgantown Crinkle line , it features highly textured surface. What distiniguishes the Lido line is that the pattern does not go all the way up to the rim of the glass.  It came in colors of Aquamarine, Avocado, Crystal, Honey Gold, Laser Blue, and Spicy Brown.


Anchor Hocking produced the "Milano" pattern from 1959 to 1963. The pattern name was then changed to "Lido" because subsequently the molds were remade by the Zanesville Mold Company in Ohio, a newly acquired Anchor Hocking Corporation subsidiary. The difference between the molds resulted in the `Milano' pattern name changing to "Lido." Although the two patterns are similar, the "Milano" pattern has a distinctive and more defined "crinkle" than "Lido". "Milano" was produced in Forest Green and Crystal only.  In the Lido pattern the crinkle pattern does not extend all the way to the top of the glass. There is a clear rim at the very top.


Set of 4 Midcentury retro vintage Anchor Hocking Lido aquamarine 5 ounce juice glasses.  Made for cold drinks of orange juice, ice tea, kool-aid, or lemonade, it is easy to grip and looks great. A practical retro vintage design ready for your kitchen today.  


Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  Each of the four glasses in this great retro vintage midcentury set stands 3 5/8 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches across the top.  Each holds 6 ounces of liquid to the brim. Perhaps they were juice glasses as well as bar glasses. Each is decorated with a 1/2 inch band of silver in the style of Dorothy Thorpe.  In addition, each of these glasses was wheel cut to create 8 ovals on the outside of the glass making them easier to handle and adding a dash of style.


They are in excellent condition and ready for your Mad Men era bar or rec room today.   The Seneca Glass Company operated from 1891 to 1983. The original factory was in Fostoria, Ohio (built, then vacated by Fostoria). Some time later, a new factory was built along the Monongahela River in Morgantown, West Virginia. Seneca's factory was next to the Morgantown Glass Works and two doors down from Beaumont Glass. This proximity led to the companies "borrowing" designs from one another and at times making or decorating glass for each other. The full name of line #1980 is Driftwood Casual, often shortened to Driftwood.


Driftwood Casual is available in a rainbow of colors, though not all pieces will be found in every color. Official colors names are Accent Red, Amber, Buttercup (later called Yellow), Charm Blue, Cinnamon (sometimes called Brown), Crystal, Delphine Blue, Gray, Heather, Lime Green, Moss Green, Peacock Blue, Plum, and Ritz Blue.


This is a set of the early hard to find Moss Green Driftwood Casual 4 1/8" tall 10 ounces table tumblers.  The table tumbler is one of the earlier pieces and is not easy to find today. It was an early item in the line last offered in the 1967 catalog.


The set is in good vintage condition as far as the glass itself.  There are some wear marks in the top inch or so of each glass caused I believe by being put through the dishwasher.  Use them with no fear just don't put them through the dishwasher. 


They are ready for your Mad Men rec room or bar today.  Whether you use them on your patio or terrace or in your swanky living room. Get those gin & tonics ready or just serve water or iced tea in them.


You can go green and save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.
