This thin old tumbler is advertising a store in Portland, Oregon. It is unusual as most of the advertising glasses we find are for soda. This one reads; I. Gevurtz & Sons - Portland - House Furnishers. On either side of the name are toadstools with dates; 1880 and 1906, respectively. The lettering which appears to be lightly acid etched, is on one side only.
It is slightly tapered measuring about 2 1/2” in diameter at the top, 2 1/4” in diameter at the bottom and about 3 7/8” tall. It is in nice condition does show wear from age. It has faint scratches around the top 1 ½” inside the glass (it is possibly that this was used by someone for honing a razor). There is also light wear to the etched area but there are no chips or cracks.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
