This wonderful set of six MCM Black and Gold Rocks or Old Fashioned Tumblers depict Cameos of World Leaders. Each is marked, Forecast, in gold, the "F" in a diamond shape. Each flared on-the-rocks or old-fashioned tumbler is decorated with historical world leaders' cameos in detailed gold relief on black backgrounds. Every oval portrait is framed in gold with a raised laurel wreath. Small gold flowers with a black center dot the clear glass between the eight profiles, and a gold laurel leaf band rings the rim. Figures depicted are Napoleon Bonaparte, King Henry VIII, Marc Antony, Beau Brummel, Benvenuto Cellini, Duke of Buckingham, King Louis XIV, and Beau Nash with their country and the years of birth and death.
Each has some minor gold loss, creating small clear spots in the gold. I have tried to show examples in the photos. There are no chips or cracks, and all designs are still clear.
Each tumbler measures 3-1/2 inches tall. The tapered shape is 3-5/8 inches in diameter at the rim, and 2-inches at the base.
Made circa the mid-1970s, each is marked “Forecast” in gold just beneath Louis XIV. There are no other marks.
