Collectable cocktail glasses produced in the USA from the 1950s to 1980s. Many with 22K gold embellishment. Most are signed by the designer or company.
Are Culver glasses still in production?
No. The special high-heat embellishment process is not used today.
Was real 22K gold used on Culver glasses?
Yes. Most of the designs have either a thin layer of gold or a thick embellishment of raised gold. Handwashing is recommended to retain the luster.

Actually, the tall hiballs, the most common size, is perfect for a water or iced tea glass on your dining table. The variety of colors will complement your dinnerware.
