Though I normally post and sell more Midcentury glassware, I could not pass up picking up this set of stunning Art Deco inspired footed cocktail goblets. It is interesting to note that in the "Midcentury" period, there was still an enormous amount of more "elegant glass" being produced by great American companies such as Fostoria, Tiffin, Cambridge, Heisey, Duncan & Miller, New Martinsville, McKee and more. Typically this glass was also available in a full set of dinnerware and serving pieces as well. Growing up, each of my aunts had their "pattern" of "good glass" which normally was only used for special occasions. 


For every person who was buying "modern" glass in the 1950s, there was an equal even probably greater number of people buying these more formal glasses, now referred to in the antique trade among glass dealers and collectors as "elegant glass". 


In any case, if you want some "elegant" glassware to go along with your vintage Midcentury barware, here you go.  When I interviewed George Scatchard about who had studied under him or assisted him, a familiar name arose: Sally Duval. I knew Sally for two reasons. I had purchased a set of coffee mugs done by her back in the late 1970s and which I use everyday to this day. Secondly, I taught her sons while at Essex High School.


Once I knew that she had assisted George and learned many of his techniques, I could see his influences in her work such as in this 4 1/2 inch tall blue honey pot. Its construction is much like a coffee mug or wine goblet.


It is signed on the base with her first name only: Sally. Isn't it striking?  Art Deco 1926-1970 New Martinsville #4536 Janice pattern Janice 2-lite candleholders:


Though I normally post and sell more Midcentury glassware, I could not pass up picking up this set of stunning Art Deco candleholders by a great American glass company which is no longer in business. It is interesting to note that in the "Midcentury" period, there was still an enormous amount of more "elegant glass" being produced by great American companies such as Fostoria, Tiffin, Cambridge, Heisey, Duncan & Miller, New Martinsville, and more. Typically this glass was also available in a full set of dinnerware, serving pieces, and accessory pieces as well. Growing up, each of my aunts had their "pattern" of "good glass" which normally was only used for special occasions. Many of those sets had companion pieces such as console bowls and candleholders.


For every person who was buying "modern" glass in the 1950s, there was an equal even probably greater number of people buying these more formal glasses, now referred to in the antique trade among glass dealers and collectors as "elegant glass". 


They are in excellent vintage condition and ready for their next home.  With a height of 3 1/2 inches and a top opening of 2 1/2 inches, this small but well-proportioned coffee mug was made by David Gil, in his Cooperative Design years, most likely 1948-1960. 


This green glaze has undertones of different shades and a finely grained texture.  The unglazed bottom is marked with the incised cooperative design, bennington, vermont mark in a rectangle though it is a faint impression on this mug, dating it to the 1960-1961 time period. 


It is in excellent condiiton and a good example of a David Gil design.

Noritake 1925-1925 9 inch square tan luster border Cornucopia cut out handles:


Priced at just $25 in my Booth 17 at 5 Corners Antiques, here is a lovely example of the Art Deco china the Noritake Company of Nagoya Japan was making specifically for export to foreign markets. It carries the red wreath mark indicating it was made in the 1925-1935 time period. The bowl is 9 inches wide and stand 1 1/2 inches tall. It features tan luster around the rim with 2 cut out handles. It is a great Art  Deco design. 


The Noritake Company produced and exported thousands of items in hundreds of designs to the United State between 1921-1935. They had a design office in New York City where current design sources would be used to send ideas to Japan for the Noritake decorators to use. One of the most highly collected periods of Noritake production is from the 1921 - 1935 Art Deco period. 


They are renowed worldwide for their dinnerware but had a whole division focused on what was then called "fancyware", items for household consumption decorated artistically. Though very reasonable in price when first sold, they are now collected by both collectors in the Western world as well as in Japan.


Excellent condition. Add it to your Noritake Art Deco collection today  Set of four 1970-1979 Libbey Accent Line #3778 8 ounce Champagne / sherbet glasses:


The Libbey Glass Accent Line (1970-1979) debuted in the 1970 Pacesetter catalog. It was most likely designed by Freda Diamond, who was Libbey’s main designer from 1942-1979. Over the ten years of its production, it was made in the following colors: Crystal (1971-1979), Dusky Blue (1972-1973), Gold (1970-1971), Olive (1971-1975), and Tawny 1970-1979.


Here is the original promotion language: "A modern classic ... from Libbey, the longtime pace setter in stemware.


Here’s stemware for today ... stemware with style that’s just right for the informal dining and entertaining of America’s lifestyle in the 70s.


From the 1971 Pacesetter catalog comes the following language: "Handsome upswept profile combined with warm Tawny tones make the new Accent line an award winner in the recent National Housewares Manufacturers Design Competition."


From the 1972 Pacesetter catalog: "Libbey’s glassware answer for any style of life. Bold, formal, casual, Old World look or New. Blends well with practically everything from fine china to earthenware."



The original line debuted with the following pieces in the Stemware Line: 1) 6 1/2 oz Wine/Juice, 2) 8 ox Sherbet/Champagne, 3) 9 1/2 oz Rocks, and4) 11 3/4 oz Goblet. In the Tumbler line were: 1) 16 oz. Cooler, 2) 12 oz. Beverage, and 3) 9 oz. Rocks . 


Excellent condition.


Add them to your Mad Men bar or rec room. They are a great size and feel great in the hand. Real glass made in the U.S.A. Stackable too!


Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  This iconic 1970s pattern go, the "Butterfly Gold" pattern which made its debut in 1972 was designed by Gregory Mirow. The elements of the design are highly stylized: flower, butterflies, sheaf of wheat. 


This particular style of cup is made of a product called Vitrelle which is "a tempered glass product consisting of two types of glass laminated into three layers." (wikepedia). 


These "hook-handle" cups were made between 1972 until 1982 and as you can see stack easily, one of their selling points. They were designed by Charles B. Ketcham. 


Excellent condition. It's time to plan a coffee klatch!  Their mark under the Continental Can Company name consists of three concentric letter Cs. So, these glasses were made between 1957-1978. The Continental Can Company purchased the Hazel Atlas Glass Company in 1957 but in 1964 12 of the 14 plants of Hazel-Atlas were acquired by the Brockway Glass Company. This mark thus dates these glasses are from the 1957- 1964. Continental Can retained the Clarksburg, West Virginia plant where they continued to produce the Hazelware product line until 1972 but I don't know if they included the CCC mark. In 1978, Brockway Glass Company announced the closure of the glass tableware division that it had purchased from Continental Can Company just six years earlier. Brockway Glass Company sold the Clarksburg, WV plant to Anchor Hocking Corporation, of Lancaster, Ohio. Anchor Hocking did not manufacture any of the Hazelware product lines.


Each glass stands 5 1/2 inches tall and holds 12 ounces. It has a 1/2 inch solid glass base which gives it great stability. The design is done in real gold. The three pheasants on each glass , both male and female are depicted in great detail. Know a hunter who likes a good cocktail? Buy a set now and save it to give it as a gift!

Not everything that sparkles is gold..en Foliage by Libbey Glass! See my last post on how to distinguish these from real Libbey Golden Foliage.


I recently bought a set of eight rocks glasses with what I thought was LIbbey's iconic and popular Z3316 Golden Foliage pattern on them. Libbey's iconic Golden Foliage line (1957-1982) was introduced in the Fall 1957 catalog on page 11.


However, the 9 oz. curved side rocks glass was produced only from 1973-1980. When I compared the pattern one the set of glasses I assumed were by Libbey to one signed Libbey Golden Foliage rocks glass, I noticed a few differences.


First and foremost, they are not signed with the famous LIbbey cursive capital L on the bottom. I then examined them side by side and noticed that;


1) The basic shape was different. The genuine Libbey rocks glasses has a curved side while the mystery glass has a straight slant on its side.


2) There are 8 single or double leaves on the Libbey glass. There are only 5 on the mystery glass.


3) The Libbey leaves are small compared with the mystery glass whose leaves reach from the top to the bottom of the frosted middle area.


4) The oak leaves in the clear area of the band are very different. The real Libbey leaves have a serrated edge while the mystery glass pattern has round edges.


5) There is clear glass outlining only part of every one of the 8 elements of the Libbey pattern. On the mystery glass, all five elements are completely outlined in clear.

5) Finally, one of the characteristics of the Golden Foliage pattern concerning the oak leaves is that in the Libbey version there is are some clear horizontal lines which encroach into the frosted area at the top and bottom of the oak leaves. This was a very Midcentury graphic design motif.


Both glasses features two gold bands around the frosted area. Both stand 3 1/4 inches tall. I have included an original page from the 1973 Libbey catalog where this rocks glass made its debut.

So, which company made the Libbey Golden Foliage imitation? As they say, "research continues" 


This set is in excellent condition and ready for your barware needs. (No dishwasher though. Hand wash only).  This line was introduced in 1969 in this decoration for one year. It reappears only once more, in 1973. Though the plain Accent Line (1970-1979) was available much longer, this design was only produced for two years according to the company's catalogs.


On the top of the box the customer would see the following: Hostess Glassware, the Libbey logo (which looks like something made with an Etch-a-Sketch) and "Styled by Libbey". A "hostess set" for Libbey was a boxed set of glass. I also love the highly reflective silver interior of the box, making them shine. On the side it reads "Libbey - Quality glassware since 1818. in the lower corner of the same side it states: "374T/43069 PRADO 8 0 9 oz. Rocks Glasses". The Prado decoration is an embossed Scroll pattern in a complementary brown color with gold highlights.


Excellent condition.  Anchor Hocking Midcentury set of four 5 oz. laser blue Pagoda juice glasses: 


I am amazed at how many pieces I have found of this line in Florida! Juice glasses this time. 


Four sizes of tumblers in the desirable lazer blue color. The Anchor Hocking Company called this pattern their "Pagoda" pattern and this color "honey gold", along with "avocado green" and "lazer blue". Like Libbey with the its 1971-1975 Artica line, Anchor Hocking created a pattern of highly textured surface to compete in the marketplace. Round at the top but square above the pedestal foot, the line also shows the Scandinavian influence started by Iittala of Finland whose Ultima Thule line for the Finnair airline designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1970. 


This Pagoda line exists in honey gold and avocado green but is most collectable in the laser blue color. 

There are seven shapes in this fun line: 1) a 3 3/4 5 inch 5 oz. flat juice glass, 2) a 3 1/8 inch 9 oz. flat old fashioned (rocks) glass, 3) a 5 inch 12 oz. flat tumbler, 4) a 5 1/2 inch 16 ounce flat tumbler, 5) a 6 7/8 inch 23 ounce flat tumbler, and two pitcher shapes


So, which juice will it be to fill these beauties up?  This 16 oz cocktail pitcher in a brass holder is shown on page 4 of the 1959 Fall and Winter Libbey catalog. By the 1961 catalog, its name had been changed to the "Hostess Pitcher". It appears in the catalog for 4 years. So, it is at least 56 years old and ready to serve yet longer for your cocktail needs. It will be available at Barge Canal Market in mid-April for $20. DM to reserve now if interested.


Here is some info on Libbey’s beloved Golden Foliage line: This iconic line was introduced in the Fall 1957 catalog on page 11. There, it first showed up as part of a Beverage Set, complete with shape number 159, the 8 12.5 ounces glasses and a caddy. It carried line number 3316.


In the 1958 catalog, this shape was joined by 8 more shapes: a 11 oz. Pilsner, a 9 oz, footed goblet, a 14 oz Cooler, a 10 oz Beverage glass, a 9 oz rocks glass, a 6.5 oz footed sherbet, a 4 oz cocktail, and a 1 oz footed cordial. There was now also an ice tub sold with 8 9 oz tumblers in a brass-finished caddy. 

By the 1960 catalog, a companion line titled Silver Foliage, had appeared. It existed in all the Golden Foliage shapes. It was even featured on the back on the catalog that year. 

It was still in the catalog as of 1980 when four footed shapes could still be found.It last appears in the 1982 catalog. So, it was available continuously for 26 years. It is little wonder it is easily found and part of so many memories.

Coffee? Tea? Hot Cider? A set of 4 shape 1410 coffee mugs for your retro kitchen java extravaganza!

This iconic 1970s pattern is the "Spring Blossom Green" pattern which made its debut in 1972 and was designed by Sara Balbach.


 The elements of the design are highly stylized in a band around the cup: abstract small white flowers with green centers, green flowers with white centers, solid green dots, and green outlined white leaves. This set of four is also available at Barge Canal Market for $20 and is ready for hot coffee, hot cocoa, hot tea, you name it. I also have some available in my Booth 17 at 5 Corners Antiques in Essex Junction Vermont  A set of 4 shape 1410 coffee mugs for your retro kitchen java extravaganza! 


This iconic 1970s pattern is the "Butterfly Gold" which made its debut in 1972 and was designed by Gregory Mirow. The elements of the design are highly stylized: flower, butterflies, sheaf of wheat. 


This set is available and is ready for hot coffee, hot cocoa, hot tea, you name it. I also have some available in my booth 17 at 5 Corners Antiques in Essex Junction Vermont.  The Impromptu Line was introduced around the same time as the Accent Line. It too was designed by Freda Diamond who was Libbey's head designer from 1942-1979. She was brilliant in her understanding of the American giftware market. It was produced in plain glass and with decorations on it from 1971-1982. 


Here is how it was described in the original 1971 catalog geared for wholesale dealers who carried Libbey glass: "The look of the future for the lifestyles of today. Casual, contemporary glassware design. Handsome, sculptured sidewalls feel comfortable …. easy to hold …. and look good, too! Offered in tasteful shades of Tawny, Olive, and new Dusky Blue. Put them on your shelves, Watch them move." 


It is hard to find this line in Dusky Blue color glass as it was only offered in this color in 1971-1973. I think cocktails look great in clight colored glass. Time to look up some vintage cocktail recipes and fill up these rocks with some vintage goodness!  Like other better known lines such as Lido, Soreno, and Pagoda, this late 1960s to early 1970s glass line from Anchor Hocking comes in these colors: avocado green, clear, gold, laser blue, and a rare flower vase.

 

According to replacements.com, the line includes 11 pieces: a 4" flat juice tumbler, a 3 1/8" old fashioned tumbler, a 5 1/2 inch tall 12 oz beverage tumbler, a 6 inch 16 oz tall tumbler, a 6 3/4 inch 22 oz "cooler", a 9 5/8 inch 64 oz pitcher, and a 11 1/4 inch storage jar. For footed pieces, it includes a 3 1/2 inch 8 oz champagne/tall sherbet, a 5 3/4 inch water goblet. It even includes two plates, both a 9 7/8 inch dinner plate and a 10 inch snack plate with cup ring. 


This makes this line one of the most complete lines Anchor Hocking offered in this time period. It is also a hybrid of the textured surface lines such as Lido, Soreno, and Pagoda and much more traditional glassware in that the pattern of flowers is done in relief on each piece while keeping a stippled background.

This Midcentury Modern classic design was created by the Viking Glass Company. This line was called "Epic" and it is! The Epic Line from Viking Art Glass was produced from 1956 to 1970. Instead of placing two handles at each side as in a more traditional glass design, the designer included a handle in the middle which also serves as a divider so that the candy dish has more functionality.


This particular design was included in the Epic line from 1962-1968. It measures 8 1/2 inches long x 6 inches wide. The color of the glass? Ruby Red like those famous slippers, baby! It is ready to sit on your Midcentury Modern credenza and give it a pop of 1960s-1970s color. A great resource for the designs of Viking and the Epic Line is the book titled Viking Glass 1944-1970 by Dean Six published in 2003. (ISBN: 0-7643-1859-4).  The Impromptu Line was introduced around the same time as the Accent Line. It too was designed by Freda Diamond who was Libbey's head designer from 1942-1979. She was brilliant in her understanding of the American giftware market. It was produced in plain glass and with decorations on it from 1971-1982. 

Here is how it was described in the original 1971 catalog geared for wholesale dealers who carried Libbey glass: "The look of the future for the lifestyles of today. Casual, contemporary glassware design. Handsome, sculptured sidewalls feel comfortable …. easy to hold …. and look good, too! Offered in tasteful shades of Tawny, Olive, and new Dusky Blue. Put them on your shelves, Watch them move." Time to look up some vintage cocktail recipes and fill up these smoky grey glass rocks with some vintage goodness!  Are you named Anthony or Armstrong? Audrey or Adams? If your first name or last name begins with the letter "A", then this set of vintage platinum rim Midcentury hiball glasses from the 1960s is for you! 

Yes, that's the ticket! This set of 4 clear with "A" monogram tumblers/hiballs stands 5 1/2 inches tall. Each one carries the monogram "A" on one side. Very heavy 3/4 inch base which gives these glasses great stability and heft. 


So, let's see, which classic cocktail would you serve in your "A" glasses?  Marcy Mayforth 1990s Purple Plumes vase:


Talented Vermont studio potter Marcy Mayforth of Lincoln has been creating colorful and practical pottery since the 1970s. I met her in a jazz dance class we were both taking in the late 1970s. She has exhibited in Frog Hollow for many years. Her wax technique outlines the elements of her design. 


This is a new design for me by Vermont studio potter Marcy Mayforth. It consists of four 2 section plumes, one in purple and one in light blue. I have never seen it before and I am very familiar with her wax designs. Marcy created these designs using the classical wax resist method. This 3 1/2 inch tall vase is signed simply with her MM initials. The background is a off white which really makes the design pop. 


This shape was also sold with a matching ceramic ball attached to a wick to use it as an oil lamp.

Noritake Viewpoint grey 1978-1983 set four 4 1/2 inch champagne tall sherbet:


Champagne or cocktails ... or dessert for four? Well, apparantly this is the very situation which the Noritake Company chose to address with the introduction of their 1978-83 Viewpoint line in this smoky gray color. This elegant line is highlighted by the use of a smoke gray glass bowl on top and a one piece body of the glass. They are simply stunning.


The smoky gray color was very popular in the late 1960s through the 1970s. It was used by Holmegaard in Denmark in Per Lutken's iconic line as well as by the Libbey Glass Company of Toledo Ohio and Morgantown in West Virginia. For Noritake, I believe this line was their attempt to stay current with the times.


This shape was marketed as a "champagne/tall sherbet" glass. Each stands 4 1/2 inches tall and the bowl is 3 7/8 inches across. It would look stunning in the right Midcentury decor. Add it to your vintage barware collection today.  It's funny that I have now purchased a third set of this Federal pattern after never seeing it before last month. This version has a silver rim added to it with embossed 6 embossed designs repeated twice around the bowl. The design is very abstract but feels Scandanavian in nature. It could even be a very abstract butterfly. 


This set of 3 5/8 inch tall footed cocktail glasses features a smoky gray foot attached to a clear round bowl. This size was listed as their "champagne / tall sherbet " but it would be a great choice for your classic or craft cocktails too! 


The set is now for sale for $20 for the set of 3, that's less than $7 each  This set of 4 vintage stamped aluminum 3 1/8 inch bar coasters features a very popular motif of a spray of flowers which was often used on all sorts of decorative articles or housewares in the 1945-1970 time period. They were inexpensive to buy and likewise inexpensive to manufacture as they did not use the labor intensive "hand hammering" method found on higher priced aluminum items of the period. The pattern was simply stamped by matching onto thinner aluminum, then shaped to its desired purpose.


Whether stamped of hand hammered aluminum, they sure were popular then. Now, they can play the same vital role they played back then, protecting wooden surfaces from condensation from a cold drink served in a glass. Order them now.  My Mom had a special set of "guest coasters" or fancy coasters that she only used when she hosted her Ladies' bridge club a few times a year. They had their own special location in the top drawer of the end table. Strictly off limits except for the bridge club. Of course there were a few other coaster sets around the living room, dining room, and the rest of the house.


This set of 4 vintage stamped aluminum 3 1/8 inch bar coasters features the very popular "Fruit & Flowers" pattern which was often used on all sorts of decorative articles or housewares in the 1945-1970 time period.

Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of America's past. Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  Made in  Bristol Vermont, this Moutain Kiln Pottery 5 inch tall blue maple syrup jug was made by either John F. Kennedy  or Paul T. Kennedy, brothers who formed Green Mountain Wood Crafters in Charlotte Vermont in 1937 and worked there until a fire in 1942. 


Post WWII, they were located in Bristol Vermont until 1959. They moved into the former Sheffield Farms building on Route 22A in Vergennes in 1960, adding a gift shop where tourists were able to watch the wood ware being made.  From 1960-1980 they had several retail locations in Florida, New York, New Hampshire but the most successful was in downtown Burlington at the corner of College and Church street, now Sweetwater's restaurant since 1980, though the Kennedy family still owns the building. 


The earliest piece I have heard of is a pitcher dated 1947. I do not yet know when the pottery stopped operating. I now know that whichever brother was not involved with the wooden ware Vergennes operation opened a store in New Haven, VT which was operating as late as 1971 when an acquaintance's grandmother stopped and bought some pottery marked as Pittsfield Potters there.


In excellent condition, it is glazed in a light blue glaze.  It is marked with the incised initials MKP and Bristol, VT.  The "Irvinware" mark was registered to the Leonard Silver Manufacturing Company, Inc of Boston MA.  The company registered this trademark in April 1968. 


The patent description includes:  stainless steel giftware, hollow ware, bar accessories and kitchen utensils, e.g., lemon and lime squeezer, container opener, cocktail strainer, bar spoon, ice tongs, double jigger, cork screw, bottle pourer, mixer glass, cocktail set, cocktail shaker, bar caddy, ice crusher, and relish fork". 


Whew!!  Talk about bar accessories!


This vintage ice tub stands 7 3/4 inches tall (not including the cover and bail) x 7 1/4 inches wide. Now this holds a LOT of ice! It is singed on the bottom with a stamped raised mark which states Irvinware.


It is in excellent vintage shape.  It is ready for your next cocktail party

The vase is glazed both on the outside and the inside in this mottled glaze.


The #10 shape vase stands10 1/8 inches tall and is 5 1/4 inches wide at top. The bottom tapers to a 3 1/2 inches square base. It is signed with Mark #10, putting it in the 1948-1956 time period in my opinion.

He started from a converted horsebarn with his brother George in 1962, George having started producing in 1960. Both brothers used a "single firing" method.


According to the Vermont Life article on page 42, Ted "was the only New Englander to receive a merit award for three items (all pottery) entered in the 1965-1966 New England Craft Council's exhibition for new and emerging craftsmen. 


This four inch tall hand thrown vase features the standard brown gray glaze used by both Ted and George. He created three dots on the sides of vase by removing the glaze to reveal the chocolate brown unglazed surface below. 


The vase is in excellent condition. It is signed on the bottom with an incised signature: Ted Scatchard.

Produced by the Bovano company of Cheshire CT between 1952-1964, this 6 1/2 inch wide square ashtray is in the same design as my previous post of the 15 inch "Red Flowers" plaque. I have named this stunning variation "Green Flowers" Abstract red flowers with orange centers. Abstract green flowers with gold centers. The back is counter enameled in black as well. I first saw this pattern in a 2004 issue of Modernism magazine. Bovano recently ceased production. This piece is available at Five Corners Antiques in Essex Junction Vermont. The back is counter enameled in black as well.  Bovano 9 inch Confetti & Jewel ashtray:


Made by placing small bits of colored glass and one larger chunk of colored glass on the gold ground before firing, the final result is a geometric abstract pattern I have named "Confetti & Jewel". Bovano of Cheshire CT made many Midcentury enamel items from 1952-1964 in these abstract designs before shifting their production to more realistic three dimensional stand alone sculptures and wall pieces. This great 9 inch dish has rests to use it as an ashtray. These days, one can use it as a catch-all or a candy dish.  Carl Radke 2015 Amber fumed purple with blue leaves and silver vines California Poppy Toothpick Holder:


This Carl Radke 2015 signed toothpick holder stands 1 15/16 inches tall. It is blown into a traditional 1880-1895 American Art Glass shape, that being a double gourd form. It is made of two layers: the inner amber glass color layer and an outer layer of clear glass onto which the orange flowers, silver vines and blue leaves of the CA Poppy pattern are placed. It is then iriidized by a fuming process to create it lustrous purple highlight finish. It is signed on the bottom "Carl Radke 15" and carries his Phoenix Studios silver paper label.

Carl Radke has been blowing glass since 1970. He was one of a vanguard of young artists who participated in the Renaissance of American Art Glass in the early 1970s.


Originated by Tiffany in 1881 and popular during the early part of the 20th century, Lustre Art Glass had fallen out of favor about 1925, practically becoming a lost art. In the latter part of the 1960s, the art programs of several California universities began to rekindle an interest in glassblowing in general and in Silver Art Glass specifically. Several of the young artists became fascinated with the medium and were caught up by the challenge of rediscovering this complex and sophisticated art form.


Lustre Glass is a very specialized glassblowing medium because of the silver content in the glass. It has always been one of the most costly forms of glass to produce. In addition to the high cost of the raw materials used in Lustre Glass, the raw glass can only be maintained in the oven for a short time before the color, quality, and texture of the glass batch begins to degenerate. These two factors prevent this volatile studio glass from being mass-produced in a larger factory environment. Thus, the specific formulae and high raw material costs have kept the blowing of Silver Lustre Art Glass in the hands of a few skillful artisans as the glass maker must be chemist as well as craftsman to work successfully in this medium.


Carl Radke is one of only a few glassblowers out of the thousands in the United States who continues to work in this difficult and traditional glass. His skill with glass and glass decoration has allowed him to "play" with the medium and to develop his unique creations.

The elements of the design are highly stylized: flower, butterflies, sheaf of wheat. 


It stayed in the line until the late 1980s or early 1990s though its date of departure is not exact.  The saucer used in all four versions of the cups were always Corelle saucers as they were meant to be part of a Corelle dinnerware service. 


This version of the cup holds 8 ounces and entered the line in 1981 and was available until 1986. 


Each cup is marked thus:  Pyrex Microwave Safe No  Stovetop or Broiler Corning USA.
