Identifying Drinking Glasses?

Identifying Drinking Glasses - tall glass with a lily of the valley designI am trying to identify these glasses. I think they are highball glasses, 6 in. tall and 2 1/4 at mouth. They were a wedding present for my mother so from about 1942. There are no marks on them. I have 7 left so there probably was a set of 8 or more. The flowers and leaves are frosted.

These are neat! Very classic mid century modern look! If you are looking to sell or buy additional, check with replacements.com and upload the image and they will identify it for you.

If you are trying to sell, now is the time (one you have the pattern name, you can check eBay and Replacements to see who has the best deal. Etsy will probably be much higher than the others.

The MCM craze is waning. If you are looking to buy, you may want to wait a few months so that the prices drop (when the craze wanes even further, demand will drop and so will prices).

Post back what you learn!! Thanks for sharing!

Looks like you have vintage glasses that were very popular in the 40-50-60's and made very nice inexpensive wedding presents.

Your set may be Libbey as this was a very popular brand during that period but I'm not sure if Libbey marked all of their glassware. Some had a single L on the bottom.

Libbey glassware was sold mostly in 5 & 10 cent stores like Woolworth's or Grants but also in Montgomery Ward, JC Penney, and similar lower end mercantile stores.
Some other brand glassware was also given as 'gifts' with purchases of gasoline so your set could have came from several different sources.

What you have is called 'Lily of the Valley' design so that is what you need to be searching for.
I did find several similar sets (sold and unsold) but an exact set was sold some time ago and no information is really available.

Check these links/sites:

I believe your glasses could possibly sell for $50-$60 dollars on a site like Ruby Lane or Etsy and maybe even eBay.

If you have never sold online before you have to be very careful with all aspects of your listing or you could end up losing money instead of making money.

Shipping is always a hassle as breakable items are very difficult to ship safely and insurance is high and payment for breakage is unpredictable.
For this reason, you may want to list your glasses on local sites like Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo or Facebook Marketplace so you can offer pick up only with no shipping involved.

With these sites you always start out with a higher price and lower it if no one shows an interest (after 5-6 weeks) and you can list on all sites at the same time.

Here are pictures of Lily of the Valley flowers.

Thanks for the replies. I had seen the links before and nothing is really similar to my glasses. I believe mine are either highball or collins glasses. I don't believe they are Libby; no mark and they are thinner and appear higher quality than most Libby glasses I have seen.

I probably will never really identify but will keep trying.
