A magical set of 7 Cera "Dow Jones" stock market rocks glasses. Such a neat pattern with heavy enamel and gold embossing of the stock market industrial average (from 1958-1968) in 22k gold, black, and white. Similar to Culver and other MCM glassware manufacturers, Cera used used a heavily textured embossing method with real 22k gold in the pattern. Truly a stunning set.

Maker/pattern: Cera, Dow Jones

Hallmarks: All glasses are signed

A bit about this glassware manufacturer: Cera Glass was made in Hackensack, NJ, USA, in the 1950s & 60s. They created elegant cocktail glasses, barware and other specialty pieces, which were sold in high end department stores of the era. Anthony Velonis, who was already a famous WPA silkscreener and artist, started the Cera Glass Company which pioneered methods of silkscreen printing on glass. Similar to other Mid Century glassware makers, his designs were trimmed in 22K gold.

Measurements: Just shy of 4 1/4" tall x 3 1/4" in diameter

Condition: Good vintage condition overall with some minor gold loss on some of the bands. We like to be very thorough when it comes to describing the exact condition of our vintage sets, so here's a glass by glass summary:

Glass 1 - No gold loss
Glass 2 - Very minor gold loss in two very small spots
Glass 3 - Minor gold loss in a number of spots (see photo #9 as an example)
Glass 5 -Minor gold loss in a number of spots
Glass 5 - Very minor gold loss in two small spots
Glass 6 - No gold loss
Glass 7 - Gold loss in a number of spots on the rim -- this 7th glass has the most gold loss -- see photo #7, we zoomed in on the gold band

The glass clarity is good (no cloudiness) and the enamel pattern is in good shape. No chips or nicks of any kind. Overall, this set is in good vintage condition but does have minor gold loss on some of the gold rims. Cheers.
