Cute 1950s Libbey Animal 'Merry Go Round' Carousel Glass Tumblers

This is a fabulous set of four vintage carousel or circus animal glass tumblers. They were also called "Slim Jims glasses" in the 50s and 60s in reference to their shape. The Libbey Glass Co called this pattern in their advertisments and catalogs "Merry Go Round". All are frosted or have what they called a "spray satin" finish. They are in excellent condition. The set includes an orange giraffe, yellow-green lion, pink elephant and yellow leopard.

Each glass measures approximately 7" high by 2 1/2" wide. These were all made by Libbey Glass in the 1950s. They are adorably retro with two sided graphic carousel animals, with scalloped decoration & carnival flags. On each side the graphic is slightly varied to give the illusion that the carousel is moving.

I have owned them personally for over 20 years.

Thanks for looking!

Dishdarlin is one of those rare and special shops, one hopes to hear about and experience firsthand. So happy to have discovered Miss B's shop right here at Etsy--she's the REAL DEAL, folks. I might add, genuine and kind hearted, too. Thank you!

Meet the owner of Dishdarlin
