A lovely set of 6 Mid Century Egyptian King Tut rocks glasses by Culver. This Culver pattern has a magical feel to it and is slightly "raised" or textured and features a vibrant gold Egyptian/King on the front of each glass, along with gold trim at the top as well as the bottom. Truly a lovely set.

Maker/era: Culver, Mid Century

Hallmarks: Two (2) of the glasses bare the Culver Ltd signature in gold font, the other four (4) glasses have very faint signatures.

A bit about this glassware manufacturer: 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. Culver stopped producing its gold overlay pieces in the 1980s.

Measurements: 4 1/4" tall x 3 1/4" in diameter

Condition: Good vintage condition overall with mild signs of age and wear. We're pretty Type A about the exact condition of our items/sets, so here's a full summary:

1) As mentioned above, two of the glasses have good signatures while the other four glasses have a faint or no signature
2) Three of the glasses have vibtant "King Tut" patterns with no gold loss, while three of them have very mild gold loss on the King's head (see photos)
3) Three of the glasses have minor gold loss on the gold bands/trim (see photos)

In short, this set is in good vintage condition overall with mild signs of age/gold loss in a few places. The glass clarity is excellent (no cloudiness) and there are no chips or nicks of any kind. Truly a stunning set that displays beautifully.

*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). Cheers!
