    Gregory Duncan designed glass for West Virginia Glass, I believe in the 1940s and 50s.

    I have not been very successful in finding out much about this artist as of yet, but I just started researching him.

    These are beautifully derived and extremely unique. The Gold leaf is extremely thick, unusually shiny like Gold compared to similar items I collect and the Purple thistle head has a wonderful density to it as well.

    If anyone has further info on these beautiful drinking tumblers, please let me know. I will post more about them the more I learn about them

      I have a weakness for 50s bar ware. It rocks on the rocks!

      Greg Duncan is my cousin. He lives in Sonoma CA. He was born in 1949 in Ross, CA. He is still designing and painting. Most of us in the family have - or have had a set or two of his Thistle glasses.
