You will love these showing off this set of six Mid-Century Teal and Gold Space Age-Style Highball Tumblers made by Starlyte, Inc! Each glass is lavishly wrapped in a 1-1/2 inch wide, 22K-gold band that encircles each tumbler in two sections. Numbered S7T1, and slightly reminiscent of Morocco, the gold design is a textured filigree of inverted arches around the bottom. A row of small circular openings in each gold band is filled with gorgeous teal, and the negative space of each arch is separated by a teal-filled diamond-shaped opening in the gold peak. Like the rockets of the era, a 2-3/4 inch spire in the same transparent teal outlined in matching textured gold rises from each arch.
Mimicking the design, the shape of each 5-1/4 inch tumbler is narrower at the top, measuring 2-3/8 inches in diameter at the rim, widening to 2-3/4 at the heavy bottom.
Made by Starlyte, Inc. circa the 1970s, each of the tumblers is signed “Starlyte” on the side with at least a portion of the tiny star logo before the S. Contrary to popular belief, Starlyte was a company in its own right and was not a division of Libbey glass, though many of their designs are similar.
There is slight wear to the gold in some places, but not enough to impact the beauty of any of these highballs. The gold overlay is off-center on at least two of the glasses, resulting in the gold on the left of the teal spires to have failed to adhere to the glass in the manufacturing process. There appear to be some water spots in the teal sections that may come off with a gentle washing. The teal color is still beautiful and bright. There are no chips or cracks.
The price is for the complete set of six tumblers.
This set looks very similar to Culver's secret process for layering gold upon gold in different textures. Thank you for visiting MaggieBelle's Memories! Please see my Favorite Links to follow me on Pinterest!
