A lovely and rare set of Libbey "MOD Reindeer" glasses. These glasses were made at the same time Libbey made their "Kit Kat Cool Cat" pattern. Libbey created this pattern in the early 1960s and is nothing short of magical. These frosted glasses feature a black reindeer donning a pink scarf and hat. These glasses often (but not always) came with jewels on the neck of the scarf and/or one on the ankle of the deer -- or both). Truly a magical and rare set.

This set includes: 4 Collins glasses

A bit about this pattern/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, MOD Reindeer, early 1960s

Condition: Good vintage condition overall with some minimal wear, age, and missing jewels. We're pretty Type A about describing the exact condition of our vintage sets, so here's a detailed summary:

1) There are no jewels on the ankles; all the necks have their jewels
2) There's mild general surface wear and age to these glasses
3) One glass has two small darker marks on the back of the glass (a manufacturing ocurrence, we suspect from the black enamel of the pattern) -- see photo #4 as an example, there are lighter areas/spots within the black enameled reindeer that can be seen
4) All the glasses black enameled reindeer have "smudges" or lighter areas to the black enamel (not uncommon during manufacturing for this particular pattern)

In short, these glasses are in good vintage condition overall with noticeable but mild signs of age, mild general wear, some missing jewels, and a few manufacturing occurrences. Zero chips or nicks. Truly a stunning and magical set.

Hallmarks: None of the glasses bare any hallmarks. Sometimes during manufacturing process the "L" didn't get embossed very deeply (or at all)

Measurements: Approx. 6 1/4" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter

We have another set of 5 of this pattern, if you're interested in a larger set. See other listings!
