Atomic Aluminum Bascal Aluminum Tumbler Set Vintage Retro 40s/50s Set of 17 Fantastic Estate find-colorful and desirable collectible summer time "Classic Drinkware"
There is nothing better to use for sipping Iced Tea on a hot summer day. When you add lots of ice, you can just watch the condensation forming all the way up to the beverage line.

Great environmental and health choice No BPA.

I recommend sipping from a supine position, in the grass under a shady willow tree with a book you enjoy.

Aluminum was the standard before plastic had it’s big breakthrough. These aluminum cups were popular in the 1940s and ’50s in the same settings where today plastic is the number one material of choice: barbecues, parties, beach lunches and picnics. KID Proof!

The two main manufacturers of aluminum tumblers were Sunburst and the Italian company Bascal. These are the latter. The cups came in bright colors – purple, pink, red, blue, silver and a variety of other gem toned hues. The aluminum was anodized – a process that protects aluminum from oxidation, increases wear resistance, and promotes color retention. Still, these cups are not recommended for dishwashers, as their colors will fade faster than with hand washing.

This colorful set includes 17 bright colored Tumblers that stand 4 1/2 inches tall.

**** I have another set of 8 with a fantastic carrier in this Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/94188357/aluminum-tumbler-set-colorful-vintage and I also have another set of 10 in my other shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/97720531/atomic-rainbow-aluminum-tumblers-bascal?ga_search_query=bascal&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_6121424

Use Hint:
I encourage you to purchase all 35 of them for your fantastic "Retro Wedding or Family Reunion" since in total I have 35 of these jewel toned tumblers. They have such a Kitsch appeal and rainbow blast of color. Imagine using them for floral displays or drinks. What a fantastic party favor!

Looks great in the kitchen too.

*Minor dings, wear scratching and, some fading to colors, and some with heavy interior oxidation from acidic drinks, but in overall good "vintage" condition for their age and heavy use.
