    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

      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.

      @kathleen.carter1 That is awesome he is your cousin! I recently purchased a set of wine glasses and decanter on eBay to add to my collection of low balls, high balls, and ice bucket. Our family is of Scottish descent and our grandparents started with the set of low balls and we have been obsessed with acquiring pieces for years. Unfortunately, I am questioning the authenticity of the wine glass and decanter... They are missing the Gregory Duncan mark. It did not even occur to me that there could be fakes out there. And the wine glass are so rare, I have nothing to compare them to. Do you have access to a picture of what the wine glass/decanter should look like? Or could Greg confirm his name should appear on all legitimate glassware with the pattern? Thank you!

      So if he was born in 1949 - what era are these glasses? Did he start designing young? I love these!
