Some of my favorite finds are free. These glasses with the black lines and the gold starburst patterns are one of the freebies. There are seven of them, I would assume that there were originally eight. One of my coworkers retired a couple of years ago and moved out of state. She and her husband cleaned out, had a big garage sale, and packed up to go. These glasses were left over from her sale, so she hauled them up to work with some other items to see if anyone wanted them. I latched onto these as soon as I saw them. How could anyone give up a set of glasses with such a great design?
These two glasses belonged to the above-mentioned coworker's mother. She is in the nursing home and when the daughter was moving, the family moved mother to a new nursing home. Moving brought up the extra chore of cleaning out the mother's house and selling it. I bought these at the garage sale they had for her mother.
I remember this pair of glasses from my childhood. My great-aunt (the one that I have inherited so many great things from, see my Pyrex mixing bowls in an earlier post) had these. I remember using them as a child when we would go to visit. I love the space theme on the glass on the left, and I am fairly certain that the one on the right is an old jelly jar glass.
I will tell you right now that my specialty is not identifying glassware, especially when it is unmarked. Can anyone identify anything about the glasses above?
