A gorgeous set of 8 Culver "Golden Key" tall tumblers, 1980s. Culver made various patterns around the "Greek Key" pattern and made this particular pattern, called 'Golden Key" in the 1980s. Please note: unlike the version they made in the 60s, this pattern is flat (doesn't have texture to it). These glasses are simply stunning and the gold is extremely vibrant. Truly a stunning set.
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). Culver stopped producing its gold overlay pieces in the 1980s.
Hallmarks: All glasses bare the Culver signature in gold ("Culver Made in the USA") and two of the glasses have a gold foil Culver sticker.
Measurements: 6" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter - please note these are tall glasses and hold 15 ounces
