A rare set of four Mid Century Culver Cotton Boll glasses. Such a lovely pattern that features a two-sided pattern of stark white and vibrant gold Cotton Bolls. The pictures don't do this set justice as we took photos at dusk time. The white is a stark white and the gold is a stunning vibrant gold. Truly a stunning set.
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, holiday designs, sports motifs and many others. Their glassware bares several signatures (depending on the era) including "Culver Ltd" (Ltd = Limited), "Culver", and "Culver with a C inside a circle" (a copyright symbol). During the 1970s, many of Culver's glasses moved from the applied signature to a small gold foil sticker (that read: 22k Gold Culver Made in USA) that was often removed by the original buyer upon purchase. Culver stopped producing its gold overlay pieces in the 1980s.
