Set of 8 “International” glasses by Libbey (1959-61)
Made by the American company of Libbey, this is a complete set of eight colourful glasses depicting international cities: Madrid, Athens, Hague, Havana, London, Rome, Bombay, and Paris. Perfect for your “Mad Men” cocktail cabinet (if you have one) or for any enthusiastically retro drinking environment 😉
The presence of the Havana glass dates the set between 1959 and 1961 (see the 1959-60 Libbey Catalogue here: http://libbeyhistory.com/Catalogs/19591960fall.pdf) . Because of the Bay of Pigs / Cuban Missile Crisis – and the sensitivity of having a Cuba-related item in the set- Nassau replaced Havana in 1962.
The glasses are in the “Double Old Fashioned” tumber glass style of the range and each is approximately 4in (10cm) high with a diameter of 3in (8cm) around the rim. Overall, the glasses are in very good condition, aside from a nibble on the rim of the “Havana” glass which is a shame but we don’t think that it renders the set any less desirable.
SORRY, SOLD OUT!
