Red Glasses - 8 oz tumblers - Windsor Mid Century Vintage. They measure 3 and 3 eighths inches tall and are in nice condition with no chips or cracks. Great for juice or wine. Beautiful deep ruby red color.

Anchor Hocking was named for the Hocking River near which the plant was located. The development of a revolutionary machine that pressed glass automatically would save the company when the Great Depression hit. The new machine raised production rates from 1 item per minute to over 30 items per minute. When the 1929 stock market crash hit, the company responded by developing a 15-mold machine that could produce 90 pieces of blown glass per minute. This allowed the company to sell tumblers "two for a nickel" and survive the depression when so many other companies vanished.
