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.

Beautiful glasses.
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.

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.
