I bought a set of 8 of these glasses. They are quite heavy and are five and 1/2" tall. There is a silver rim at the top. I'm trying to figure out if they may be vintage? And, if so, I wonder how old they might be!
They look to be from the 1950s or 1060s. From what I have seen on eBay, they are worth less than $25 for the set.
These are very beautiful! I found that there are a lot of nice vintage glasses on Etsy. Here is a link:
The heavier a glass is, the more money it will be worth. These look very nice!
Apparently someone on eBay thinks this set is quite valuable and is asking 55 dollars (free shipping, which means the seller pays shipping so will probably net about 40 after fees and shipping).
I suggest watching this auction and seeing if it sells and then that will give you today's market value.
I love these type of glasses. They have a 60s vibe to me! Earth Day is coming up in April!! That would be a good time to sell them to promote green and earth and cool stuff!
Post back how much you get for them!! Blessings!
The Antiques Roadshow appraisal website has thousands of appraisals on file. Hopefully you will find your tumblers. www.pbs.org/
You say glass tumblers so does that mean you have more than one?
Hi. I found multiple listings for these on an archive ebay site I frequent, but for some reason can't share the posts (I guess because you have to have a user name and log in to do so). The listing says it was a set of 4 from the 1970s. The seller said he/she was not able to find a like version on Ebay or Etsy.
From what I can see they never sold in the 20-25.00 range (were listed multiple times).
The seller didn't know who produced them and I have no memory of these...although they look so familiar. I used to be a huge fan of character glasses from the 50s through the 70s, then I lost interest because they would break too easily and I would get sad.
These remind me of a gas station or jelly glass, but those are usually very well known types and typically were marked with the company since they doubled as promo items.
There is an outside chance replacements.com could ID them exactly, but I have had no luck with them on this type of item...they are great for good china and silver, but this type of stuff is hit or miss.
If I were to sell, I would try them in the mid teens, with a buy it now of best offer and let the buyer offer what he/she wants.
Maybe someone with a better memory will be able to know exactly who produced them. Thanks for sharing!
PS...the 2016 auctions were listed under the title VTG Pilgrim Thanksgiving Holiday Fall Harvest Character Drink Glasses Set Of 4
I have 2 they are identical. The pictures are all from one glass.
Thank you for the link. I am an eBay memeber.
Thank you so much. I have googled them with every name variation I could think of with no luck.
These are really cute. I have had several sets that were similar and these came from various outlets - even Dairy Queen!
Can anyone help me identify these glasses? I have 3 of them and would like to search for more. Knowing the origin may help me to locate some!
Thanks so much!
I 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 have been in the family for many years. There are no markings or imprints on the glasses. We are trying to identify their origin. There was a pitcher with the set however it cracked and was discarded.
Look on eBay or do a
Google search using a description of the item. We found out that our mother's cherished tea set had only sentimental value by doing this.
Information will be difficult to find with no markings available.
I use eBay community/discussion boards a lot when trying to identify items like this so maybe you could try this also.
I have a link to the board you will need but if you are not familiar with uploading photos you may have to ask how to do this. You will need to supply photos (a photo of a single glass may also be necessary) and size but maybe someone will have some ideas. Remember - this is a holiday time and a lot of the regulars may not be answering question this week.
If, by chance, you do not get any answers, try reposting later in January.
Here is a site which may help you:
Try asking at some antique shops on on ebay.
I found 7 of these drinking glasses today for a great deal. My wife loves the look of them. I was just wondering if they are truly vintage or modern reproductions. Thank you.
Can anyone identify the pattern on these glasses? They are from the late 40s or early 50s. I'm interested in finding more of the juice size and the mid-size, but cannot find them anywhere.
I would write to the Libbey company. I have a feeling they make them.
Oh Ok thank you..I will do that
I would check with replacments.com:
I have had many successful transactions with them. They can identify the pattern and if they are out of stock, they notify you of when they are restocked. They are reasonably priced and their packaging is top notch!
There is an easy to follow link to identify patterns.
There are several hundred etched glass listings! If you like the hunt you can match yours to their photos.
Post back with the name!! They are lovely with a mid century modern vibe!!
Can anyone help in identifying these 22k gold lowball glasses adorned with cotton bolls and leaves? I received this set of lowball glasses from my great grandmother, who told me the designs were 22k gold leaf. I've searched Google with every word combo I could think of to possibly identify the make of these, and I've found many similar, but none with the cotton boll design. I'm trying to find out more, or at least some suggestion on keywords with which to search?
I have a set of 4 of these glasses. They are dark frosted green with the gold emblem. They are 5 inches high. They were handed down to me and I've had them for several years, but never had any info on them. There are no markings of any kind inside, outside, or on the bottom.
It's going to be hard with no markings. You might want to take it to some dealers who specialize in glass.
it will be very difficult to locate information without more details as there are thousands of glasses made each year and just as many years ago. Libby did make a lot of frosted glasses but I've never seen any like this.
If you are an eBay member you can post this photo and information on their glassware forum and ask for help in identifying the maker. There are some very good people on these forums and one of them might be able to help you.
Here is a link if you are interested.
I inherited these glasses from my father. For history sake, Id like to know more about them if anyone can help please.
I have a set of glassware with several different size glasses, including shot glasses, mini martini glasses, wine glasses, shifters, highballs, and taller glasses, as well as a tumbler and pitcher, with the same design on them. The highballs are the only ones with a marking on the bottom that looks like a lowercase "e" and I am having trouble identifying its maker or it's worth. It seems to be 12 of most pieces with some exceptions that were broken. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.
