This set was produced by Federal Glass in the 1950's. It is a very lucky find having all twelve glasses as well as the pitcher and in such remarkably beautiful shape. It would be sweet just having four or six glasses, or a set of eight even. Here you have 12, so that if you break some you still are left with a very nice set.
You can see the actual brushstrokes very clearly. There is a bit of blue enameled dots on the pitcher – almost looks like baby's breath in detail. Paint is raised in spots, vines and inside of flowers mostly. The coloring is great. Wonderful detail and blending and definition of colors.
Ball Pitcher is adorned with pink flowers, leaves and sprays. There is no wear to any of the paint.
Top of pitcher has loads of gold gilt. I would say that 99% of the original gilt is still there. You have to actually hold it up and inspect it carefully to find any area missing gilt.
This set appears to be unused and looks brand new.
The twelve glasses have the same pink flowers with leaves within a network of vines. Here too, all the paint is still there.
All pieces are in fantastic condition, having no chips, except for one glass that has a small chip at the rim and a large chip at its base.
Pitcher measures 8" in height and 8" across including the handle.
Glasses each measure 5 5/8"in height. They have a top diameter of 2 3/4".
