Glassware- the tall one is frosted measures 2 1/2 across and 7" ht.
These I know are very old. They belonged to my grandparents.
I remember drinking lemonade out of them, but when I was 8 , I was not to drink out of them due to breakage and afraid of falling with glass.

I really want to find out about these, now I have them. I have 14 of them
they have lasted this long. I how old....
On the bottom of them looks like a first I saw like a wishbone marking...very confused. I don't know how well this is going to show up, but I will try again.

    Hey Linda, the wine looks like it may be 'Double Pinwheel' by Indiana Glass, first introduced around 1951. It is really hard to tell at that angle; a side profile showing the design detail is best.

    Sorry I can't help with the 'lemonade' glasses; I'm thinkin' those may be hard to pinpoint if they don't have some kind of marking.

    Tallcakes, thank you , I see a marking on the bottom, but really don't know what it could be.
  3. TallCakes TallCakes, 6 years ago
    the mark could be the Imperial Glass mark which is a superimposed I and G. You can check here; just go down to the Imperial marks:

    I don't know, I can't see it
    that...but don't trust looks like maybe F
    Thanks so much...I am going to look at another
    your just too sweet

    I had 4 people here at house, they state it looks more like the F or somewhat like a wishbone look but on the left it is shorter. This is my mystery for the day.

    maybe just one of those stray glass fold marks that tend to show up. You can compare the design with those at this Indiana Glass site:

    thanks sweetie for the compliments. I'll have to have my son take a look to see if something has gone amiss on the comments for the website.

    Really want to thank you for telling me about the feedback and comments problems at my website. The hosting site had problems with the email handler that has now been corrected. Hopefully all is good for now; testing seems to work anyway.

    The mark on the tumbler is a cursive capital L (shown backwards in photo), the mark of Libbey. Would date these to the 1950s and into the 60s. You'll find these tall frosted tumblers with decals of various designs on them too. Some possibly date a bit earlier, late 1940s perhaps. I had a set I gave to a friend that had white and matte gold horses against the frosted background--very striking. See:

    Your wine glass is Indiana Glass Co's Juno pattern (OMN). Some do call it "Double Pinwheel". It was introdued in 1905, not 1951.

    Here's just one decoration found on these tumblers (note the dimensions in the description match yours exactly):

    Paul71, thanks for the addition of the OMN on the wine. I agree that using OMN when known may eliminate a lot of confusion. I do try to include the OMN when I remember to; just most folks are more familiar with the most popular AKAs that relate to online research.
  15. Paul71 Paul71, 6 years ago
    Yes, I agree, that's why I try to use the OMN followed by the AKA. It's the only way people can learn. Strictly speaking, anything other than the OMN is an AKA.

    Oh my gosh Paul, that is exactly what I was seeing. YOUR GREAT. I know I wasn't losing my mind yet, I saw it just like you said. Wishbone, is a LLLLL...LOL
    Thanks so much. God is resting from me now...Thanks Tallcakes, updating me on your site, and thanks for getting involved with this all your help was appreciated.
  17. wingletts wingletts, 6 years ago
    Thanks for the Indiana Glass Co on wine...I would love to find more of these. the site you sent me too above with the horses are very nice. I am indebted for all your help and others. So if you see something you wish to have let me know.
