What:  11 piece mid-century modern 22K gold Culver glasses in their “Antigua” pattern featuring a simple crackled-gold band with oval cut-outs and gold rim treatment.  The set includes:

  • (4) Highball glasses – 5.5″h x 2.75″w, holds 10 oz.
  • (4) Rocks/Double Old Fashioned – 3″h x 2.75″w, holds 8oz.
  • (3) Old Fashioned – 2.5h x 2.5″w, holds 6 oz. 
  • Metal faux wood tray with complimentary edge design – 15″l x 10″w x 1.75″h with felt feet

When:  Script signature dates them to 1940 – 50s.   Culver was in business from 1939 – 1996 but ceased production of gold overlay in the 1980s. 

Where:  Produced in Brooklyn NY, USA and sold in high end department stores of the era.   I am not sure if the tray was original to the set but it does compliment the design well.

How:  Culver developed a super-heated, roll-on process of applying 22K gold which remains a secret today. 

Condition*: 

  • Old Fashioned – close to mint, brilliant color.  Probably the least used of the set.  Almost no wear to the gold, almost no scratches and all have their original signatures. 
  • Rocks/Double Old Fashioned – very good, these have the most wear and scratches, no signatures (they are put on in very thin gold and are the first thing to wear off)
  • Highballs/Iced Teas – excellent, very minor wear, few scratches, no signatures visible.  Gold is very brilliant.   
  • all glasses are very clear, moreso than they appear in the photos                                     

A beautiful set of mid-century modern cocktail glasses.  I also have an additional 4 Rocks glasses for sale so please check my other listings.  If you would like these as well please purchase and I will refund the shipping overages based on your location.
