A lovely and rare set of 3 "Oil Derrick" glasses designed by Moss Worth for Culver, 1970s. These collins glasses feature a deep opaque black glass with a stunning, vibrant gold Oil rig scene (there are 4 different scenes). Heavier in weight, these glasses have a solid feel to them. The pictures don't do them justice.

This set includes 3 glasses total. We another set of 4 available in a slighter shorter size (5 1/2" tall), please see other listings.

A bit about this vintage 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. 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.

Hallmarks: None

Measurements: A tad over 6 1/4" tall x 2 3/4" diameter -- please note: these glasses came in two different heights, this height of 6 1/4" tall and a slighter shorter tumbler that was 5 1/2" tall, if trying to match existing glasses, please make sure you have the right measurements. Thank you!

Condition: Good vintage condition overall but with mild sighs of age. The exterior of the glasses is in great shape and vibrant. No loss on the gold pattern. The interior bottoms of the glasses (the opaque black tone) shows some mild age/wear). Beyond that, these glasses are in good vintage condition. Truly a lovely set.

*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).

We pack our items securely to ensure safe arrival (especially our glassware, which means a larger, heavier box)!
