A lovely and extremely rare set of Culver rocks glasses. The pattern is called "Tivoli" and features a raised texture of Colbalt blue (a blue band as well as a series of blue dots) with a 22k gold overlay. Heavier in weight, these glasses have a solid feel to them. Culver didn't make many sets of this pattern and it's the only one we've ever run across. We took photos in two different lighting settings to try and capture how stunning these glasses are. Why not serve your cocktails in these stunning vintage beauties?!? If you love obscure Mid Century glassware patterns, this set is for you.

Maker/pattern: Culver Ltd. / Tiburon

A quick summary about this glassware maker: 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, scrolling leaf patterns, holiday designs, sports motifs and many others.

Hallmarks: None. Please note these glasses/pattern do not bare the Culver signature

Measurements: Just shy of 3 1/2" tall x 3 1/2" diameter

Condition: Good vintage condition with mild but noticeable signs of wear. We're pretty Type A about describing our vintage item/sets, so here's a full summary:

1) There's gold loss in several places (as an example, see photo #8, there's gold loss on the bottom gold pattern on 1 glass, compared to the other)
2) There's one tiny chip (the size of a pinhead) on 1 glass (see photo #6) 

In short, there's some gold loss in a number of places and 1 micro tiny chip. The glass clarity is excellent/clear (no cloudiness). The blue and gold are very vibrant. Truly a gorgeous and obscure set.

**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces to ensure safe delivery.
