It may look like Culver, even resembles Culvers Prado pattern, but these divine glasses & barware are from West Virginia Glass.
The Henry VII pattern, is made up of vivid pebbled enamel windows in Red, Yellow, Blue & Green, framed by thick textured Gold leaf & a prancing lion, family crest / shield / emblems, in blocks that give the feeling of a castle and "Old World Europe".
Whatever the process they used to fire the Gold onto the glass, it seems to far out last similar Culver pieces, being that I have yet to find a piece that was not practically pristine. Albeit, they are very rare and difficult to find.
The barware sets tend to come in only Green, being that all of the pitchers, ice buckets and martini shakers I have found are Green.
Truly a beautiful pattern from a less known glass company, that is quite difficult to find much of anything about.
