    Libbey Ka-Dinks were made in 2008-2009. Not sure if they were made in the US of A. The production of these sundae glasses was apparently very brief. I suspect that was because the frosted surface is very easily damaged. I seldom see these in thrift shops and when I do, the finish is always scuffed. All of the ones pictured have minor scuffs and scrapes. They are very striking, though, and when I first saw them, I was convinced they were something from the 1930s-1950s. Very retro. The glass is sturdy and the bottoms are finely detailed. The interiors have a glossy finish. They measure 5.75" high and 4" across the top. If the frosted finish was not so fragile, I suspect they would have been a big seller. Possibly future collectibles, especially if made in the US.

      @Ms.CrystalShip - Thanks! I agree! Maybe Libbey did some mind control research when designing these!

      Thanks hunterqlee and Ms.CrystalShip

      Thank you ho2cultcha! I took these before my camera died and I was reduced to using the camera on my phone. I bought a new camera, but still figuring out how to use it. It is not user friendly like my old camera was.

      kwqd, Yup, mind control. };-)

      I myself bought a set of their wafer-style ice cream cone drinking glasses:

      And no, that frosted finish wasn't durable, but they were fun while they lasted. :-)

      Thanks keramikos! I hadn't seen the cone glasses before. Very cool!
