A stunning and rare set of 8 Mid-Century Libbey "Platinum Artica" glasses (which mimics a vibrant chrome silver tone). These glasses were sold in the early 1970s and are nothing short of stunning with their Brutalist design and vibrant silver/chrome color. The most stunning feature is their heavily textured pattern. These Modernist glasses have a slightly footed bottom and a subtle tapered shape. Libbey made this glass design in an amber colored glass as well as clear glass. The "Platinum" color is the most rare of the colors. Truly a breath-taking set. Why not serve your cocktails in these gorgeous vintage glasses?!?

A quick summary about this glassware maker: The Libbey Glass Company has been manufacturing glassware since the 20th Century and is still producing high quality glassware today. Certain vintage Libbey glassware pieces (but not all of them, depending on the size and type of piece) is signed with a cursive “L” within a circle or ring. The mark actually appears backwards if viewed from outside of the glass, but it appears correctly when looking down through the inside.

Maker/pattern/era: Libbey, Platinum Artica, early 1970s

Hallmarks: The glasses bare a cursive "L" for Libbey (the L on a couple of the glasses is very faint or missing as they likely didn't get embossed as deeply during manufacturing).

Measurements: 5 1/2" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter

Condition: Great vintage condition. These glasses have been preserved in a cabinet for decades. The silver is extremely vibrant and thick (we've noticed on some Artica glasses the silver doesn't get applied as heavily but this set's platinum silver is applied very well and heavily). There's no actual "wear". On one glass/rim we noticed the silver didn't get applied as heavily in one area. Beyond that, these glasses are near pristine. Zero chips, nicks, or cracks. Truly a stunning set.

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