A lovely and rare set of 4 Mid Century "Oil Derrick" glasses. These collins glasses features a deep black "Oil Derrick" pattern with gold rims on the top and a thicker gold band on the bases. Heavier in weight, these glasses have a solid feel to them. The pictures don't do them justice.
And we have another set of 4 of this size and pattern, if you're interested in a larger set! See other listings.
Maker: Lotus -- many (including us in the past) attribute this pattern to Culver. It was actually made by a company called Lotus in the 1960s. Culver did, however, make an opaque black pattern that included gold Oil Rigs. But this pattern in the listing was made by Lotus. Similar to Culver in that they used real 22k gold in their pattern.
Hallmarks: None. Lotus included a gold foil sticker on one glass that was typically removed upon purchase.
Measurements: A tad over 5 1/2" tall x 2 3/4" diameter
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. These glasses have never been used (they've been stored in a cabinet for decades). Truly a lovely set. Cheers!
*General note on vintage glassware: Mid Century glassware often has imperfections (i.e. tiny bubbles in the glass, or a "seam" from when the glass was being created, an extra spot of gold or enamel that made it on a clear part of the glass, etc -- purely the nature of vintage glassware).
**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces well to ensure safe delivery. Please note: we are not making a penny on shipping. We pack our items securely to ensure safe arrival (especially our glassware, which means a larger, heavier box)! If you buy multiple pieces/sets, we will combine shipping if possible (glassware sets typically ship in their own box to ensure safe arrival) and will reimburse you for any shipping overages.
****Important to note pre-purchase: Buyers, please examine all photos carefully as we cannot accept returns due to the fragile nature (the possibility of breakage or damage when being shipped back) of our vintage/antique pieces. Our items are true vintage pieces that might have manufacturers flaws, flaws from age, or imperfections in general from being vintage. We try to explain the condition/description in an accurate and thorough manner but we ask that you please examine all photos carefully and ask all questions before purchasing an item as we are unable to accept returns due to the risk of breakage/damage.
