Get a fab set of 6 vintage silver rimmed glasses from the 1960s. They are not round or shaped like true roly poly glasses BUT they do right themselves when tipped on their side like a roly poly glass. The top edges flare out on these retro glasses but the sides are rounded enough to roll back up.
They hold approx. 8 ounces. The silver rim is approx. 5/8” wide. The glasses are 2 3/4" high. Top opening has a 4" diameter.
The bold silver rims on all of these glasses are in nice shape. This is a really mod set with all six having no chips, cracks, or other structural damage. Light wear to the silver rims.
Unmarked and similar in style to the barware seen on Mad Men, though I don't believe these are the authentic Dorothy Thorpe.
Why mention of Mad Men?
The main character of AMC’s “Mad Men” drinks from sterling-silver banded glassware that he keeps inside his Manhattan Avenue office.
Who was Dorothy Thorpe?
The roly-poly crystal glasses Draper sips from were designed by Dorothy Carpenter Thorpe (1904-1989), a Los Angeles-based artist. Thorpe designed other sterling-edged entertaining ware such as cocktail pitchers and cheese domes.
