All of these kitchen beverage sets come from about the same time period. Care to take a guess as to when they were commonly used?
We lucked up a couple of months ago and found this Federal glass set, still in the original packaging. That meant I didn't have to go looking for the trademark to identify the manufacturer.
These glasses didn't have a manufacturer's mark on the bottom, so there was no way to be absolutely sure of the age, but the estates they were found in gave some pretty good clues.
The reason it's so helpful to find a maker's mark is that trademark designs change over the years, and that helps to date a vintage item fairly well.
I don't know what it is about these kinds of vintage kitchen collectibles, but I'm always drawn to them when we find them at estate sales. Maybe it's because they are part of my childhood memories. If that hint is not enough, I'll be putting another hint in the comments in a few days.
So, did you have some like these at home? Can you give them an approximate age?
We always have a variety of collectible glasses up for auction, so you might want to look at what we have on eBay right now.
