Libbey leaf pattern glass ware (50s or 60s)
Just wondering if anyone has or collects this glassware. I would like to know more about it and see how others are using and displaying it.
My camera is dead so I will post a photo from the internet.
This is what I know about them. Some of this may be incorrect so let me know if you have better info than I do.
Libbey made this glassware from 1950 to 1978. The most popular years were the 50s and 60s. You would get the glassware free in boxes of Silver Leaf or Duz detergent. You could also acquire it by saving green stamps.
I have some from my mom and aunt. My mom doesn't really remember much about it but thought she got hers with stamps.
Some have a gold leaf pattern (also called golden foilage) and some have a silver leaf pattern.
I have been using some of the glasses for wine for years and putting them in the DW. Mistake.
I want to keep the pieces I will actually use (no more DW)and sell the rest. I am missing one glass from a carrier that I need to find. There are some pieces for sale on ebay and etsy so I am hopeful and can complete the set.
DH really doesn't like them. I love autumn leaves and like the idea that these belonged to my mom and aunt. I don't want to keep them in the basement anyone.
So does anyone know any more about these or collect them?
