Vintage 1940s Monogrammed Cocktail Glasses with Gold Lettering & Laurel Leaves - Libbey Glass Co. c 1948
C is for cocktail...
What's better fun than paring a vintage cocktail with a vintage cocktail glass? That's the question we always ask around here the moment the clock strikes happy hour.
Traveling straight from 1948, this pair of vintage tall tumblers were made by Libbey Glass Company for their "Hand-de-Canter" series. This line of decanters and matching glassware was made for all sorts of beverages including juices, specialty drinks, and cocktails. But this design, in particular, with its shiny gold laurel leaves and fancy monogram sparkles especially bright during the cocktail hour when you are whipping up a batch of tom collins or gin fizzes or a refreshing mint julep (or two!). Handsome and stylish additions to your cocktail cart, these two will make the night sing with sophistication and good spirits.
As one of the oldest glass manufacturers in America, Libbey's story is pretty fabulous. Originally, it began as the New England Glass Company based in Massachusetts in 1818, but by the end of the century the company found itself in a new location - Toldeo, OH and with a new name The Libbey Glass Company. As true pioneers and innovators from the beginning (they were the first to automatically produce light bulbs in the early 1900s) their insight into technologically advanced design fueled the brand through a century's worth of success. By the 1990's they were incorporating specially equipped computers to handle glass design on the production line.
It's no wonder Libbey has been a favorite for over two hundred years. Classic companies, classic cocktails, and classic cups never go out of style!
