A rare and magical set of 7 Libbey "Kings and Queens" Playing Card tumblers. Libbey created this pattern in the early 1960s and it's nothing short of magical. These glasses/tumblers feature rich, bold colors of a red, black and gold playing card pattern on top of frosted glass. Truly a magical set.

A bit about this pattern/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.

Maker/pattern/era: Libbey, Kings and Queens Playing Cards, early 1960s

Condition: Great vintage condition. There are zero chips, nicks, or cracks on any of the glasses. Please note: Mid Century glassware commonly has manufacturing flaws that occurred during the creation of the glass(es) -- (i.e. several tiny bubbles in the glass, a few specks of extra paint the size of a dot on the frosted glass, there's one tiny spot that appears to be a white "scuff" but looks like it occurred during manufacturing and is white paint, etc), so this set and all Mid Century glassware we have listed will have such things. This set includes: Queen of Clubs King of Clubs King of Hearts Queen of Hearts King of Diamonds Queen of Diamonds King of Spades At one point this set likely had a Queen of Spades and went missing/got broken over the years. In short, these 7 glasses are in great vintage condition and truly a magical set. Cheers!

Hallmarks: There's a backward "L" on the bottom of each glass (when you're looking down inside the glass the "L" is facing the correct way).

Measurements: 6 1/2" tall x 3 1/4" in diameter
