    In 1931, Libbey Glass launched an art glassware line designed by a former Tiffany executive, Douglas Nash. Introduced during the Great Depression, this upscale Libbey Nash series closed after less than two years in production.

    One of the lines in this series was the Libbey Nash Silhouette Line. This line was stemware with frosted, black, opalescent (moonstone) & amber/red (VERY rare) animals comprising the stems. Ten different figures can be found on eleven types/shapes of glassware: e.g. goblet, a cat; claret, a bear; cocktail, a kangaroo; sherry, a monkey; cordial, a greyhound: compote, a giraffe; both a sherbet & a vase, a rabbit/hare; champagne, a squirrel; candlestick, a camel; center bowl, an elephant.

    The kangaroo, monkey & greyhound are the most easily found while the elephant bowl and the giraffe compote are the rarest and very, very hard to find/afford. Some pieces can be found with the etched “Libbey” in a circle mark. Heights range from 2.5” (rabbit/hare sherbet) to 7.5” (cat) to 10.0" (rabbit/hare vase)
