A stunning and rare set of 4 Culver jeweled "Ornaments" glasses/tumblers. This pattern is simply breath-taking and features "ornaments" (that resemble large gold medallions) with various colored jewels in the center of each ornament. Words cannot express how stunning the pattern is. Truly a breath-taking set.
A quick summary about this glassware maker: 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. The jeweled Ornaments pattern is one of Culver's harder to find patterns and is truly the essence of Culver glassware.
Maker/era: Culver, Mid Century
Hallmarks: All glasses are signed "Culver Ltd" (Culver Limited) in gold cursive
Measurements: 5 1/2" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter
Condition: Very, very, very good vintage condition. These glasses have never been used and have resided in a display cabinet for years. The gold is extremely vibrant and there are no missing jewels. No chips or nicks of any kind.
Please note: Mid Century glassware can have tiny bubbles, glue residue near the jewels, a jewel that's ever so slightly not perfectly centered, a tiny extra spot of gold or a tiny spot where the gold didn't get fully applied/filled in and other natural imperfections -- purely the nature of Mid Century glassware. In short, this set of glasses is in very, very good vintage condition and display beautifully. Truly a breath-taking set.
