Mint Set of 8 Carew Rice “Low Country” Silhouette Highball Tumbler Glasses Black Americana – USA (SC)
Price includes US shipping and insurance. Please contact the shop prior to purchase if you require shipping to another country.
This is a mint condition set of 8 Highball glasses featuring “Low Country” Black Americana scenes by silhouette artist Carew Rice. I have included a picture of the original catalog page that featured them (page not included.) Charleston, South Caroline artist Carew Rice lived 1899 – 1971 and was well known as “America’s greatest silhouettist” creating cut silhouettes (known as Scherenschnitte in Europe.) As a well known artist, these glasses and a matching pitcher (sold separately) were created to memorialize his work. These glasses feature scenes of plantation, “low country” life and are now collected as Black Americana as well as art. These would make a beautiful display piece which can be used functionally as well.
Size: Glasses: 5.5″h x 2.75″w
Condition*: Mint condition, I believe these were always display pieces and never used.
