Retro Glasses - frosted with pink bases
« on: July 21, 2006, 03:49:04 PM »
Hi all,

I've come across a couple of not very old glasses (or are they dishes?) and am interested to know who made them.  

I have a feeling they might have been a promotional item.  I'm sure they have no value but I am curious about them. Does anyone recognise them?

Picture here: http://s110.photobucket.com/albums/n112/smorgazboard/?action=view&current=100_1103.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch1

Thank in advance!

Julie

That is the pinkest pink I've ever seen! 8) Sorry, can't help with ID but the shape is rather distinctive.

Mm, I suspect that's why I bought them!  

They're a great retro item, but you unless you have the whole kaboodle house (or one fitting for Barbara Cartland or Barbie) then they're more than a bit redundant!

I have/want neither, hence the long stay in the attic!


Still curious though!
