Identifying Glasses

A drinking glass with silver markings.Found two glasses today that I need help identifying. Based on this thread, I've learned it could be Circleware or Pasabahce brand based on the double teardrop stamped on the bottom. There's also the number 23 stamped on the bottom.


The glasses have a silver rim. The design is in black and grey, crown on one side, looks like a lion? on the other. Celtic pattern?

Is this considered a pint glass? or highball?

Thoughts on origin and worth of these glasses?

I did find this symbol on the bottom of the glass and they are called droplets. The two drops of water are the reminiscent of the Chinese Yin/Yang symbol. The glass company is located in Pasabahce Turkey. The company opened in 1934 and it is still in business today. The number you are seeing is the factory location in Turkey or somewhere else in Europe where the glasses were made. This company makes a lot of glasses for homes and restaurant use.


They make many types of different designs. I can't find the year they started to use this mark so it is hard to say how old these glasses really are and if they have any value at all. I know the company is still in business today and it could be possible that you contact them and ask what year they made your glasses. This could actually determine if the glasses are worth any money or not.

Your glasses are Circleware made by Pasabahce Company located in Turkey but their glassware is made in several different countries.
There does not seem to be a lot of information on date Circleware items were made and some of the same glasses may have the tear drop/Yin Yang mark or just a P but be the same design.


Some of the glassware seems to be in a specific series but difficult to locate all names.

Pasabahce web site now uses the teardrop/Yin-Yang symbol on their website. There is link to switch to english.

There is a lot of confusion about the name - Circleware - and you will find many sellers just categorically use the name - maybe because it has circles or because it has Pasabahce mark or they just think it's okay to use this as a generic name.
You will find that very few listings will have a picture of the bottom/mark as verification of the brand.
Here are listings from Etsy and many of these have Circleware as brand but many are just using the name.

It gets even further confusing as so many names are used and most do not relate to Circleware.
Circle Crystal


Circleware Manufacture of Glassware (may or may not be)

It appears that names it as Circleware Crystal:

This really has my curiosity going as it really seems that Circleware brand is no longer with Pasabahce and is being produced in China.
Maybe Pasabahce did not patent/register the name (Circleware) so someone else is using it (I did not check patent offices as this could have been anywhere in the world).
It does appear Pasabahce did patent.register the teardrop/Yin-Yang as they use this on their site.

Bottom line: you may never know the series this is from or even exactly where or when they were made but I do not believe lack of this information will make any difference in the value of your glasses.


Judging just from the asking prices of similar glassware I would say your glasses are in the range of $8-$15 each.
The problem here is that glasses (especially only 2 in the set) are very slow sellers. Sometimes people are looking for replacements but may never find your listing no matter how you describe them.

I hope you like them and just enjoy using them but try not to 'keep' them just for special occasions.

You did not mention the size of your glass so there is no way to tell if it a 'highball' glass.
Normally, I believe a highball glass is in the range of 5.5" tall and maybe 2.5" diameter.


Here is a link to check for your glass type:

I would call the creature a sea serpent or sea dragon or maybe a lion serpent.

Are you trying to sell them? If so, play up the figure, more than the brand.

Since they are unusual, I would do them as a 7 day auction, Sunday to Sunday and let the market dictate the final resale value!!

Post back what you decide to do!

The design is from the show Game of Thrones. I doubt they are worth much since there are so much merchandise out there, but a really big fan may be interested.

I had a package show up today from Ukraine that has one tumbler in it with Darth Vader engraved and the two tear drops on the bottom of the glass. Oddly I did not order anything like this, ever.
