    When researching these glasses, I found some listed on the web as Russel Wright "Atomic" glassware. Since their purchase, though, I' ve cast some doubt on the authenticity of these as Wright's. 6 1/4" tall.
    Anybody out there know anything about these? If they're not Wright, "who" are they?. They're really cool and in "brand new" condition.
    Thanks!

      These are called so many different names (Atomic Amoeba, Boomerang, Contemporary, etc.) and there is the same pattern in gold and black that replacements calls "Fantasy" - they also made shotglasses, rocks glasses, pilsner glasses, cocktail glasses, wine goblets, etc., in addition to the tumblers you have in the same pattern. Check etsy for value - they have several listed

      agree with aghcollect; these are Federal Glass #4695 Contemporary; AKA: Amoeba, Boomerang. Tho' somewhat similar to and contemporary with Russel Wright, it appears he was not involved in this design.
