Swoon alert! A very rare set of 4 crystal Imperial Glass Co. "Bambu" (aka bamboo) glasses. The texture is simply incredible on these with a heavily raised, almost 3-D like texture; true Hollywood Regency style at its finest. Imperial Glass Co. made these in a number of colors (including gold). This color is the "original" (or clear color). These are NOS (new old stock) and still have their original stickers on the bottom. So Hollywood Regency! This set is nothing short of breath-taking!

The Imperial Glass Company was founded in 1901 by Edward Muhleman, with production beginning in 1904. Their handmade glasswares were sold worldwide and were typically made of pressed glass patterns. This Hollywood Regency line, which was manufactured from 1965 to 1974, gilded with real 22k gold and is the quintessential style of the Hollywood Regency Era.

Maker/pattern/year: Imperial Glass Company, Bambu, 1965-1974

Hallmarks: Two of the glasses have the original stickers: one that resembles a postage stamp and says "Original by Imperial" and another that's the original department store sticker that says "Imperial Crystal Tumbler". (*Please note: these glasses do not bare the embossed IG hallmark as Imperial did not emboss this particular size).

Condition: Great condition. They appear to be NOS (new old stock). The crystal is perfectly clear (no cloudiness). Truly a stunning set. 

Measurements: 4" tall and a tad under 2 1/2" in diameter. **Please note: these are smaller in size glasses and what we'd refer to as a juice glass or a small cocktail tumbler.

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