Your Choice: Hocking Oatmeal Pattern Tumbler or EAPC Star of David Tumbler
Initially I didn't catch the fact that the taller of these beverage glasses is in Anchor Hocking's Oatmeal Pattern and that the other shorter glass is Early American Prescut also by Anchor Hocking. So if you wish to purchase both, just select the quantity of two and I will refund a $1 discount (2 for $9). Or if you wish to purchase only one of these for the listed price of $5, then please specify which one in the comments section.
The taller 4 1/4" tumbler is actually in the oldest pattern of the two glasses. Anchor Hocking brought out the earlier glassware pattern of fans in the 1940's and it was named Prescut but became known as the "Oatmeal pattern." It was dubbed as "Oatmeal" because the glassware was a promotional item for "Crystal Wedding Oats" like the box in the background. "Oatmeal" is the same pattern as the later and more popular EAPC but without the star that brought the EAPC its popularity.
The shorter 3 3/4" juice glass with straighter sides shares the fan design of its predecessor, plus a "Star of David". That pattern is the Early American Presut (also known as EAPC or "Star of David").
Both of these tumblers are crystal clear and without chips, nicks, or breaks.
