A stunning and extremely rare set of 4 Culver "Bavaria" rocks glasses. These low ball glasses feature a stunning pattern of deep black band with a gold scroll pattern over-layed on the black with very Art Deco-esque gold lines and diamonds connecting the top and bottom bands. Heavier in weight, these glasses have a solid feel to them. Why not serve your Old-Fashioned cocktails in these vintage beauties?!?
Maker/pattern: Culver Ltd. / Bavara
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.
