A rare and stunning 7-piece cocktail set by West Virginia Glass Co (pattern name "Old Lace"). The pattern reminds us a bit of the Cannella pattern in terms of a "sandy" texture; however this pattern is an intense gold and the pattern is a criss-cross woven pattern. Truly a stunning set that screams Hollywood Regency and would make for a stunning display on one's bar cart or home bar!

A quick summary on this Mid Century glassware manufacturer: West Virginia Glass Specialty Company (WVGS) was based in Weston, West Virginia and created some of the most stunning glassware from 1929-1987 and was especially well-known for their hand-blown glass. In the 1950s and 60s, WVGS created a number of heavily embossed and/or Hollywood Regency style patterns that, similar to Culver, contained real 22k gold in the paint.

This set includes 7 pieces: 1 pitcher and 6 skyball glasses

We're also selling this pattern in another set that includes a Martini/Cocktail pitcher, a 16" glass stirring wand, and 5 stemmed glasses if you're interested in a larger set, see other listings!

Maker/era: West Virginia Co., Mid Century

Hallmarks: None

Measurements: the pitcher measures 11 1/4" tall x 4 1/4" in diameter; the glasses measure 6 3/4" tall x 2 1/2" in diameter

Condition: Very, very good vintage condition. There are zero chips, nicks, or cracks. The glasses has perfectly clarity. There is some very minimal gold loss in a few places (that likely occurred during manufacturing; these glasses were made in "molds" and often the "seam" of the glass didn't get as much gold applied as the rest (see photo #5 for reference); this is very subtle but noticeable on some of glasses; again very subtle and likely occurred during manufacturing, not from use or wear). The pitcher appears slightly less gold; this is an optical illusion as there's less gold pattern on it versus the tighter pattern on the glasses. There's a tiny "bump" on the clear glass handle (that occurred during manufacturing; it's completely smooth). There's also a tiny "rough spot" on a non-patterned area of one of the glasses (you can't see it, but you can feel it when you run your finger over it; completely common with Mid Century glassware). In short, this Mid Century set ins in very, very good vintage condition and displays beautifully. Truly a stunning and rare set.
