    Looking for more information about this type of drinking glasses set and tips on determining the maker and setting an appropriate sell price.

    I found this set of 8 glasses with a caddy at an antique shop in West Virginia. I love plants, and found the gold left pattern charming (and pink/gold/brass are having a renaissance now). Lovely brass-colored (real brass?) caddy, with holders on either end for cocktail napkins. The gold leaf has rubbed off on a few glasses (photo #4).

    I've seen these sold as "Tom Collins" glasses. And I've found that these sell for anywhere from $9 on Goodwill to $650 on 1st Dibs. I assume the higher value is based on vintage quality and perhaps the maker and uniqueness of the print.

    I welcome any historical/maker information or feedback folks may have on this item. Many thanks!

      1st Dibs & Chairish prices are ridiculous!! If you want a better idea of true value, look at SOLD prices on Ebay. The maker MAY be on the side of the glass. And yes, they are Collins glasses (Some say Iced Tea - but who are we kidding? These are mid-century - alcohol was everything then!) Most likely Libbey Glass. Pink is not common.

      NO DISHWASHER!!

      WAIT! That's not a Libbey caddy. And that caddy would have held coasters on either end, I believe. (Possibly napkins?) And those don't look to be Collins glasses, either. How tall are they? They may be tumblers.

      Now it's a mystery! Look carefully in the glasses, there may be a maker's mark. Culver usually marked their gasses. Fred Press did a lot of Pink, and had rounded caddy handles.
