Body Builder Vase - ID = Libbey, USA
« on: May 21, 2014, 02:01:55 AM »
Hi all.

This is a fun piece, I have one, and I just saw another for sale on eBay US.

It's clear with raised big figure studies of male body builders.

The glass is what I would call "water glass", sorta wavy.

Size is 9" tall and 2-1/2" wide.

Actually its a Libbey bar glass, you can find the Libbey ladies bar glasses quite often, but I was informed the mens bar glasses were not as well accepted & as a result are somewhat uncommon.

Thanks Ohio, I guess I can admit I've used it as an Iced Tea glass, LOL.  :D
