Get your motor running, glassware enthusiasts! A magical set of "Phillips 66 Trop Artic Motor Oil" glasses made by Libbey. These glasses were made for Phillips 66 and mimic a "motor oil can" on the front and back in a stark white, red, black, and vibrant gold enameled pattern (see photos #6 amd #7 for the pattern on the front and the pattern on the back). Heavier in weight, these glasses have a solid feel to them. They display beautifully.

Hallmarks: Each glass has an embossed "L" on the bottom

A quick summary about this glassware 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.

Measurements: 3 3/4" tall x 3" diameter

Condition: Good vintage condition with minor signs of age and general wear and a few manufacturing flaws. Here's a full summary:

1) A few of the glasses have micro tiny extra spots of enamel (pinhead size) -- see photo #5 as an example. Purely the nature of MCM enameled glasses
2) Part of the "oil" (the I and the L) didn't get applied during manufacturing and is missing, see photo #3
3) One of the glasses has a tiny small "opaque" spot to the glass near the top rim
4) That same glass has a small rough spot (we're unsure if it's a chip or a manufacturing flaw) the the bottom edge of the glass. It does not affect the funtionality of the glass but can be felt when you run your finger over it

In short, these Mid Century glasses are in good vintage condition overall with minor age, general wear, a few manufacturing occurences, and one small rough spot on the bottom/edge. Truly a magical set.
