A really unusual punch set in the "Top Prize" pattern by New Martinsville Glass. This Art Deco set was made in the 1930s. The original name is not known; "Top Prize" is Hazel Marie Weatherman's name for the pattern and it features at the top of the carnival display in the color section at the front of her great "Colored Glassware of the Depression Era 2".
This set consists of an egg-shaped glass punch bowl with a metal lid, a metal ladle and a metal ring which sits around the punch bowl's midsection like Saturn's rings, which holds the glasses. Originally, there would have been twelve, but there are only five left with this set.
The bowl is 8.5" tall and 8.5" in diameter. With the lid on it's 10.5" tall. The ring is 14.5" in diameter. The cups are 3" in diameter and 2.25" tall.
Condition: there's a 0.25" chip to the interior rim of the punch bowl which has been ground out, along with a smaller nick. The wooden handles have losses to the paint. The metal ring has a spot where the brass is showing through, and the bowl of the ladle has three stress cracks in it.
