I bought these glasses for 50cents each I have never seen anything like them. I think they were made in the 20's or 30's they are light green with no markings does any one know what they are ? I think they are parfait glasses but I am not sure.

    Very nice find. What you have are sherbets in Consolidated's Ruba Rombic pattern. Introduced in January, 1928 it was extremely modern for its time. It is lauded by collectors of Art Deco nowadays. They made it in a whole slew of colors, some more rare than others. It's very desirable stuff. See:

    Keep in mind those prices are only a guide. I once had a lilac Ruba Rombic ashtray with some damage that I sold back in 1998 or 1999 for about $250.00. It was sold through a Consolidated Glass collector's society, so it had the right target audience.

    My oh my! Reuben's ruba'i rhombic!
    And look at those feet!
    Thank you for sharing these amazing sherbets!
    The Arab connotations keep on coming:
    a) ruba'i = poetic
    b) Wikipedia says: "the term sherbet is derived from the Turkish serbet, "sorbet", ... fromthe Arabic sharbat meaning "drink(s)" or "juice.""
    They are cool!
