Culver was founded in Brooklyn, NY in the late 30s & moved to New Jersey in the 80s.The gold utilized in their glassware is 22k & is fired at high heat onto the glass for permanence. The last existing member of the original family that ran Culver sadly died in the 9/11 tragedy.

Research indicates the initial 1959 - 1963 version of this pattern is made of flat gold leaf & glass jewels. The second is of raised gold leaf with glass jewels. The third of raised gold leaf with no jewels shows up in the 1968 catalogue into 1983 (but that is the latest catalogue I own and I don't have 1965-1967)

The pitcher, ice bucket and 4.5 inch double old fashioned glasses in either of the jewelled patterns are cherished collector finds and extremely rare. The 4.1 inch double old fashioned glasses are almost equally coveted, third in line is the 4.1 double old fashioned without gems. For the most part, you will not find these signed with the Culver signature, if at all.

These (as well as with all decorative glassware) should always be carefully hand washed in lukewarm water & left to air dry. To remove water marks, a clean, dry, linen cloth is all you need.
