This is my MIL's set and included a carrier, ice bucket and 7 out of 8 glasses.
Since she was married in the late 1950's, I think this may have been a wedding gift. It has a very mid-century Mad Men look to it.
When I was out at the thrift store this week, I found a matching glass to round out the set. I was all excited until I brought it home and realized that it had a different level of frosting on it and it has a gold rim around the top where the other ones do not.
The glass from my MIL's set it on on the left and the impostor is on the right.
Close enough for me though. Once you've had a few highballs, no one will notice.
Can I tell you a secret?
Up until maybe six months ago, I thought this set was hideous. I hid it in the cabinet over the fridge that no one ever goes in to. You know, the cabinet that you have to climb on a chair to reach. The only reason I still own it is that it was my MIL's and one of the few things my husband wanted to bring here when we sold her house.
Something has come over me lately that makes me appreciate the mid-century look though. Not that I am decorating my house entirely in it, but a good chair
or credenza would be interesting.
Do you have a hankering for some mid-century?
