Information about Black and Gold Barware Set?

I purchased a set of 6 glasses many years ago at a garage sale. I've researched the archer, I believe this is the makers logo, however I've come up with nothing so I may be incorrect about that. I'm curious who the maker is? When they were made? I'm also very curious if these would be considered an "Industrial Age" design? What type of barware are they? High-ball glasses?

Thank you in advance, I appreciate any help with my mysterious barware set.

These are so groovy!! Definitely a mid-century modern design. The type is footed rocks glass. At one time there might have been a pitcher with the set, but this is really cool - and worth some significant coin. I was trying to figure out the theme of the graphics...do you think it might be telegraph or radio parts?

Federal brand, pint glasses, usually sell in the $3-$14 each range. There are a lot on the market which drives prices down. Fewer up drives prices up.

Super fun find!!!

Ps. 1960s usually called mid century modern but that is not quite accurate since 1950s were mid century. So, technically post mcm. Vintage kitcsh style.

Thanks for finding these. Looks like I did not search very well.
Neat glasses - although my son does not drink, he would like to have these on display - maybe I'll think about Christmas??

These glasses are super cool! They come in a variety of shapes too and are perfect for any drink! Be sure to shop around as there were a variety up for grabs. Because there are so many, you may be able to offer less and the seller would take it! Blessings!

Thanks - I think this is good choice as he doesn't really need anything so it's difficult to find a gift. I think I'm early enough to do as you say, look around and make some offers.
Take care.

Great pictures! This type of glass is called 'footed rocks glass' and rarely used - not sure they still make these.
The images on the glass are car/truck/motorcycle parts so this could be a souvenir set from an auto parts company (and the Indian/bow/arrow) may be their logo).
It was probably given away at a convention or may have been a 'bonus' given to top sales people/store managers.

Not sure how you will find the company but you might start with some of your local auto parts stores to see if they can tell you anything about the Indian or the glasses.
I could only think of the Indian motorcycle but could not find this mark.

You might join Reddit and see if someone can tell you who made these. Reddit is a very good sight but does have a stiff learning curve when posting as a new member. I believe you will definitely receive an answer within a few days if you post these pictures. If you join and cannot tell what group to place your question please contact the administrators and they will help you find the right group to ask.

Please post back if you obtain any information.

I believe these are from Federal Glassware. The theme on the glasses deals with old car parts and tools. There are a few of them listed for sale and they are selling for around 3-5 dollars for a glass. There are a few people listing a set for $28.
