Neat find out of a home. They had four of these vintage King's Crown Thumbprint Cranberry Flash goblets, each etched to clear in the red cranberry coloring with "Merry Christmas", the year 1969 and then a person's name, with each glass having a different name. This glass says "Connie". Given the different names, we are posting each glass for sale separately so that someone could choose to buy only those glasses with names that mean something to them.

Please note that we would be pleased to sell more than one glass and could pack them together in the same box to save you on shipping. Please email us prior to placing the order and we will compute the combined shipping for you. The system will calculate as if each glass were shipping separately and will not automatically adjust for the postage savings. We would be pleased to do that for you.

Clear glass for the lower portion of the goblet with molded oval indents or thumbprints, molded angular zig zag design above and below these indents, further smaller indents on the stem, then more zig zag molding on the circular base. Stands about 5 3/4 inches in height, 2 3/4 inches top opening diameter, 2 7/8 inches diameter to round base. Double mold line visible on underside base and clear glass sides. No manufacturer or country of origin marking but believe this was made by U.S. Glass Company or Tiffin in the late 1960's given the etched 1969 year, so this is a mid-century modern vintage piece over 50 years old. Nice heavy goblet weighing about 12.5 ounces unpacked. We would say this is a water goblet size.

We've provided multiple images to show from varied views. Please note that the camera lighting creates white "hot spot" reflections on the smooth glass surfaces. Please use the zoom feature to examine closely.

Excellent condition, we see no large evidence of wear or use so this may have been just kept on display, we don't know. No major chips, cracks, crazing or major flaws. This does have some very, very minor evidence of wear from sitting or cleaning, including some tiny spots of wear on the cranberry coloring near the outer rim above the "Christmas" and a tiny bit elsewhere (these may be just "pops" in the application of the cranberry flash coloring, we're not sure), a tiny line which appears to be within the glass (you can't feel this) along the outer base rim edge which we think was made in-mold, and a tiny brown spot on the underside base, but nothing here to worry about. Nice cranberry color as expected, clear etching with script lettering, looks professionally etched, very readable. You can see tiny bubbles in the clear glass in spots as made. In terrific condition to use or give as a gift.
