Old Retro Glass
« on: October 30, 2008, 05:45:40 PM »
Hi, I remember this from my childhood and my parents using these to have *drinks* in.  So I know they are from the 60's but would anybody know the maker, and any info.  Looks (?) like a C or a L on the bottom....TIA.

That script L on the bottom means it was made by Libbey Glass.

They have been in business a long time and they've made some very beautiful pieces.
