A rare set of 6 "Poison" glasses by Cera. Mid Century. These glasses were sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus during the Mid Century. Such a magical pattern with a gorgeous 22k gold and Ivory pattern of various poisons including: Styrchnine, Curare, Hemlock, Cyanide, Belladonna, and Arsenic. These glasses are larger in size for rocks glasses and have a flared upper and lower design (tapering in the middle slightly). Extremely heavy in weight, these glasses are solid. In addition to the various poisons, each glass has "ounces" on one side and ML (milliliter) on the other. Truly a magical set of Mid Century glasses.
A quick summary about this glassware maker: similar to Culver, Cera used real 22k gold in many of their glassware patterns and were known for creating some of the most popular Mid Century glassware designs. Cera remains one of the most popular vintage brands for MCM glassware excellence.

Curare - near perfect condition with zero flaws we can find/see Hemlock - near perfect condition with zero flaws we can find/see
