Offered as an addition to your existing collection is a Culver Tyrol 22-K Gold Decorated On The Rocks Tumbler. A nearly 1-inch wide 22K-gold band with a design of flowers and scrolls around the rim sets the magnificent Tyrol line by Culver Glass above any others. Culver used a secret process to produce a luxurious, three-dimensional textured pattern of layered gold on their glassware. Raised clear textured glass lines drip down beneath the gold band like icicles, a technique also distinctively recognizable as Culver.
It is difficult to find vintage Mid Century Culver glass without wear to the many layers of gold, and there is considerable gold loss, showing enough wear to the band around the rim that it shows clear in several places, particularly between the scrolling flowers. This tumbler will still make a striking addition to your collection. The textured gold may show some patina, but it still retains the signature Culver texture. There are no chips or cracks. Due to the delicacy of the textured gold, the manufacturer recommended that all Culver Glass be washed by hand.
This heavy, straight-sided tumbler measures 4-1/8 inches tall and 3-1/8 inches in diameter.
This pattern was made by Culver from the 1960s to the 1980s. Marks were eliminated as the years progressed, in favor of paper labels. Since these are unsigned, they are likely from the 70s or 80s, when the company used paper labels instead of the signature.
