A stunning and very uncommon set of 8 Culver "Arcade" rocks glasses These glasses are simply breath-taking and feature an Art Deco-esque "arches" pattern. The enamel is stunning and unlike any other Culver pattern. It's a cross between a green and blue and a bit "softer" in its tone. We took photos in two different lighting settings to try and capture it. Truly a rare Culver pattern. Early 1950s. Truly a breath-taking set.

Maker/pattern: Culver / Arcade

A quick summary about this glassware maker: Culver was famous for their stunning decorative glassware in 22-karat gold – think lavish and opulent cocktailware of the 1950s and 60s. In the late 1950’s, Culver started the application of the 22-karat gold to their glassware. Fun fact: the super-heated, roll-on process of gold remains a secret today. Culver comes in a variety of patterns including gilded mushrooms, owls, cats, wildlife, Egyptian or Asian inspired design themes, scrolling leaf patterns, holiday designs, sports motifs and many others.

Hallmarks: All glasses are signed "Culver" in gold cursive

Measurements: Approx. 3 1/4" tall x 3 1/2" diameter

Condition: Great vintage condition. These glasses have been in a display cabinet for years. However, there are manufacturing occurrences. We like to be thorough when it comes to our vintage glassware, so here's a full summary:

1) You can see the "seam" on one side of each glass/pattern (purely the nature of Mid Century glassware and how this pattern was applied to the glass), see photo #9 for reference, where our finger is pointing
2) There are areas where the gold trim simply didn't get applied as heavily

No chips or nicks of any kind. In short, these glasses are in very, very good vintage condition but very mild age (purely from time and not use) as well as some general manufacturing occurrences. They display beautifully. Truly a gorgeous set.

Again, please note: Mid Century glassware often has imperfections (i.e. tiny bubbles in the glass, or a "seam" from when the glass was being created, an extra spot of gold or enamel that made it on a clear part of the glass, etc -- purely the nature of vintage glassware).

**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces to ensure safe delivery. We pack our glassware extremely well, which means a larger heavier box. These glasses will be double-boxed to ensure safe arrival.
