A quick summary on this glassware manufacturer: Cera Glass was made in Hackensack, NJ, USA, in the 1950s & 60s. They created elegant cocktail glasses, barware and other specialty pieces, which were sold in high end department stores of the era. Anthony Velonis, who was already a famous WPA silkscreener and artist, started the Cera Glass Company which pioneered methods of silkscreen printing on glass. Similar to other Mid Century glassware makers, his designs were trimmed in 22K gold.

wo of the four glasses show very, very mild/general wear. And the pitcher has a tiny scratch in the lower gold band (that may have occurred during manufacturing). The glass clarity is perfectly clear, no cloudiness. No chips or nicks. The pattern/gold is vibrant. Truly a lovely set.
