A gorgeous set of 4 Culver "Golden Ropes" tall tumblers, circa 1970s. These glasses are simply stunning and feature a vibrant gold "rope" that has a raised texture to it. It mimics gold "barbed wire" a bit. Truly a gorgeous set.

We have another set of 6 of this pattern, if you're interested in a larger set. Please see other listings.

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")

Measurements: 6 14" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter

Condition: Great vintage condition. The glass clarity is perfect, no cloudiness. The gold is vibrant. No chips or nicks of any kind.

*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).
