Libbey made these commemorative old-fashioned tumblers with 22 Karat gold and aqua riverboats for Southern Comfort for their 1968 Centennial. Offered here in Sets of Four, these 22K gold and aqua Riverboat rocks glasses are slightly flared. The design consists of steamboats paddling along the river on rectangular backgrounds in aqua and 22 Karat gold. One boat's golden paddlewheel has the initials SC for Southern Comfort, while another is backed with stunning shiny gold. The reverse side of the gold is a beautiful copper tone. Two flowers accent the design, and a narrow gold band around the rim completes these glasses.
Each tumbler measures 3-1/2 inches tall. The tapered shape is 3-1/2 inches in diameter at the rim, 2 inches at the base.
A gold "SC" for Southern Comfort is in the design on each glass, and the embossed Libbey "L" is on the bottom of some of the glasses.
Made by Libbey circa 1968, most have some wear in varying degrees, especially on the gold, as you would expect in glassware of this age, but as a set they are gorgeous. The last photo provides a size comparison of the Double Old Fashioned to the Old Fashioned tumblers offered here.
These Commemorative glasses are a wonderful example of Hollywood Regency style, and will be a magnificent addition to any bar set.
