A rare set by Mid Century glassware maker West Virginia Glass Co. This pattern mimics "Mosaic" glass and includes a glass cocktail shaker (with a gold lid) and 6 footed, matching cocktail glasses. The colors are simply stunning in bold oranges and yellows with 22k gold trim. Truly a breath-taking and rare set. The pictures don't do this MCM set justice! We took photos in two different lighting settings to try and capture the vibrancy of the Mosaic pattern!

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.

Maker/pattern/era: West Virginia Glass Co, Mosaic, Mid Century

Hallmarks: Please note, WVG did not sign their pieces

Measurements: the cocktail shaker measures 9 3/4" tall and the footed glasses measure 2 3/4" tall x 2 3/4" in diameter

Condition: Good vintage condition with some signs of age and wear. Overall, this set displays beautifully but there are signs of age. We're pretty Type A about summarizing the exact condition of our vintage items, so here's a full summary:

- The lid is in good condition overall with very minimal signs of wear
- There is some wear/age in several places of the "mosaic" that are more "opaque" (likely from age and not necessarily from use, see photo #3, there's an example within one of the yellow Mosaic boxes at the top of the glass)
- There's some mild wear/loss to some areas of the gold

And please note: this pattern purposefully had "breaks" in the gold trim (so the gold line would "stop" and have a break or "space" in it and not connect to the next gold line).

Also note: this pattern purposefully had a few completely "clear" windows in the Mosaic pattern (meaning they're clear and not filled in with color, on purpose, see photo #5 for reference).

**Please Note: we typically do not test our shakers for leakage. We offer a variety of vintage shakers (both usable as well as collectible/display only). We are happy to put our shaker through a thorough leakage test (which involves filling it with liquid and rigorously shaking it) -- please message us if you'd like us to test this particular shaker. Cheers!

In short, this set is in good vintage condition with mild signs of age and displays beautifully. Cheers!

Set includes 7 pieces:

6 footed glasses
1 cocktail shaker

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