I really like colored aluminum but know little about it. I'm wondering if it was made by a specific company.

Mystery Solved

    TallCakes, thank you so much! I love the color of these and think I will look for more styles. I see you are in TN. Reminded me of my younger days when I would be at the local stable almost every day riding my favorite Tennessee Walker!

    these are nostalgic to me; I remember mom had a set of the colorful tumblers when we were growing up back in the '60s. Yes, walking horses are a big part of life around here.

    Thanks Esther110! I love them too! I think this will be a new item I will be collecting. I got real lucky on these, all for $3.

    We recieved a set of these dessert glass dishes for a wedding present in 1952, that set in alum.
    holders. They were so delicate I didn't use them. Gave to my daughter.

    thanks for the comment , Elaine Ray. Yes they are delicate and the jewel tones are so beautiful. Don't know what I will do with them but I love them.

    Your cups are really beautiful! The colored aluminum is made by a whole lot of different companies. I have Mirro, Kromex,Colorama,Bascal,Heller Hostess and more. You should see the wine goblets i have. Beautiful! A lot of the sherbert cups that i find are missing the glass top part. The cups you have are hard to find and when you find them you won't touch them for less than 80.00 or more unless they are missing the glass top.
