A quick summary on this glassware manufacturer: There is little information on this glassware maker. It appears they were American based and made/sold glassware during the Mid Century. Similar to Culver, their patterns were highly textured/raised and featured real 22k gold in the design. Their most notable patterns include Dandelions and Thistles. This glassware always bared the signature "Gregory Duncan". We are unable to find any data as to when they stopped producing glassware.

Hallmarks: All glasses are signed "Gregory Duncan" in gold cursive font. Two glasses' signatures are aren't quite as crisp.

Condition: Very good vintage condition. These glasses don't appear to have ever been used. The gold/pattern is extremely vibrant. The glass clarity is perfectly clear, zero cloudiness. Please note: Mid Century glassware often had manufacturing occurrences like "seams" where the gold pattern or trim was applied, as do these glasses. Some of the gold bands at the bottom have a tiny "gap" in the seam where it connects. Purely the nature of this pattern. In short, these glasses are in good condition and display beautifully.

Measurements: 5 1/2" tall x just shy of 2 3/4" in diameter
