Welcome to a piece of history with this high-end vintage cocktailware.  Charming set of glasses featuring the gold Christmas pattern.

This special set of Highball glasses is of particular interest to collectors because it’s an ORIGINAL set of the gold Christmas Tree patterned glasses with raised jewels.  They are adorned with multi-colored jewels and have the signature gold foiling which Culver is famously known for (the gold foiling is one of their unique specialty treatments).  

It is said that this particular Christmas pattern is the oldest of the Christmas tree bejeweled glasses that Culver offered in their glassware collections.  Strangely, ONLY the highball glasses have the script Culver signature to the base while the old fashioned glasses do not.  This is how the original sets were created.

From the 1930’s-1970’s, Culver Glass Company signed their glassware with “Culver, Ltd.’ in script.  After copyright implementation, the glasses were then inscribed with the circled C, alongside the Culver, Ltd. as shown in this set.  Reproductions, and later editions, do not have the “Ltd.” and have “Culver” in block letters instead of cursive.  

FUN FACT

Culver Glass Company was famous for their stunning decorative glassware in 22-karat gold.  In the late 1950’s, Culver started the application of the 22-karat gold to their glassware.  Fun fact: the super-heated, roll-on process of gold remains a secret today.

CONDITION

Very Good – no chips, cracks or cloudiness.  This set looks like it has not been used. This set is typical for items of this age.  It would be amazing on display or for use (just be sure to handwash these glasses in warm water and dry with a soft cloth to remove any water spots).

DIMENSIONS

3" W x 3.5" H (measurement of one glass)
