This opulent set of eight Culver Glass Coronet 22K Gold Mid Century Highball Tumblers will be a showpiece in your barware collection! The Coronet pattern is comprised of stylized designs of flowers, birds, trees, and geometric shapes. The front and back of each tumbler are decorated with a large central medallion divided into four sections featuring the Coronet motif. Two opposite sections are decorated with a flower and the remaining two sections hold a triangular geometric design with s sunburst in the center. The medallion is ringed with small squares with a circle inside, and the four corners each have a bellflower with scrolled leaves. A 3/4-inch gold band encircles the top and bottom of the tumbler in two sections. Each band has five panels of flowers, birds, trees, and geometric shapes. The wide bands are bordered with a zigzag gold narrow ribbon design which also separates the four sections of the medallion. The outside of each is gold on gold, while the reverse on the inside shows Culver’s signature blue with gold.
Each of these tumblers measures 5-1/2 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches in diameter.
The Coronet pattern was made by Culver during the 1950s to 1960s. According to Jeff Murrell's book, "Culver Glassware," the blue tends to indicate an earlier vintage.
Each is signed on the lower portion in gold script with the Culver signature.
There is some wear on the gold on two of the tumblers, particularly at the edges of the design. This is most noticeable when held to the light. Any wear on the other tumblers is truly minor. There are no chips or cracks in any of the eight tumblers.
