Bar Glasses

Pair of Gay Fad “Flight” bar glasses

What an incredible find! These absolutely stunning bar glasses are Gay Fad’s gorgeous “Flight” design featuring two stylized gold birds flying in opposite directions on a black background. The left facing bird is done in full gold while the right facing bird is done in a gold mosaic pattern. The black background is painted onto the interior of the glasses.

Gay Fad introduced this same design, done in gold and black on a white background, under the name of “Abstract” in the December, 1953 edition of Crockery & Glass Journal. To this day neither Donna McGrady, my friend and co-author, nor I has ever seen an example of Abstract and the picture we show in Volume 1, page 34 of our book is taken from the 1953 ad that appears in full on page 135 of the same volume. In the Abstract version of this design the left facing bird is the black one while the right facing bird is in the same gold mosaic as in the Flight design. Abstract may well have been Gay Fad’s very first design that used gold as part of the design itself. The 1953 Gay Fad catalog shows no gold designs whatsoever, but the 1954 catalog shows several new gold designs.

Since neither Donna nor I had ever seen even a picture of Gay Fad’s Flight design at the time we published our books, you can imagine my enormous excitement months later when I discovered these Flight bar glasses for sale online! Of course the seller – in Vancouver, Canada no less!! – had no idea that these are Gay Fad glasses, let alone the design name. How could he? The glasses are unsigned and unmarked as to manufacturer. Had Donna and I not had the extreme good fortune to have that 1953 ad that pictures Abstract and specifies that the gold on black version is called Flight, we wouldn’t have known either!

Our glasses stand 3-1/4" tall with diameters of 2-7/8" at their rims and 2-1/4" at their thick weighted clear glass bases. Both are in pristine condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, scratches, or any gold loss. Obviously these amazing glasses have been extraordinarily well taken care of for nearly 60 years and need to continue receiving TLC in their new home. Gentle hand washing only, please!

Set of 4 Gay Fad “Beau Brummel” cocktail glasses

This is a set of 4 absolutely delightful “Beau Brummel” cocktail glasses handpainted by Gay Fad Studios. Standing 5-1/2" tall, the front of each 3-1/2 oz cocktail glass depicts Beau’s face with a decidedly tipsy expression and a lock of orangish-brown hair falling over his forehead. Long faceted stem descends to a 2-3/4" diameter slightly concave base. The 1951 Gay Fad catalog features the Beau Brummel design and says “Gay Fad’s original hand decorated drinkware will enhance any home bar and add merriment and sparkle to all occasions. Each stunning decoration has been styled by Gay Fad’s own design staff, expertly hand decorated by skilled artists and ceramic fired for permanence.” All four of our glasses are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or paint loss. Be sure to hand wash them to keep them this way! If you already have a few of these glasses and need to complete your set, see our individual Beau Brummel glass. (Click on picture for more images.)

Set of 4 Gay Fad “Beau Brummel” bent stem cocktail glasses

Bet you didn’t know that there are two versions of Gay Fad’s “Beau Brummel” design, but there are – and here is the second one! On this set of four cocktail glasses, Beau’s face has a different nose and mouth than he has on the set listed immediately above, plus his hair is yellow rather than orangish-brown. You’ll also notice that these cocktail glasses have bent stems. The story goes that Gay Fad’s first bent-stem cocktail glasses were an “oops!” caused by a malfunctioning firing oven that overheated to the point where it melted the glass and bent the stems. But rather than discarding the distorted glasses, Fran Taylor decided she liked the look and a whole new line of bent-stem glasses was born! In fact, the 1951 Gay Fad catalog urges buyers to “Add hilarity to the party! Serve the third round of drinks in bent and distorted Beau Brummels – the first two rounds in the clever straight stemmed ones.” How’s that for making lemonade out of lemons? These glasses stand 6" tall at their “up” sides and 4-3/4" tall at their “down” sides. The faceted stems descend to a 2-3/4" diameter slightly concave base. All four of our glasses are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or paint loss. Be sure to hand wash them to keep them this way! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 4 Gay Fad “Garden Flowers” zombie glasses

This is a set of four highly-detailed “Garden Flowers” zombie glasses that stand 6" tall with diameters of 2-3/8" at the rim and 2-1/4" at the base. Each glass is handpainted in full color showing a different flower with its name printed below. The Black-Eyed Susans are painted in two shades of orange with a deep brown center and white accents on the petals. Stems and leave are in two shades of green with some black outlining. The Grass Pinks are painted in two shades of pink with deep wine colored centers and veining. Stems and leaves are in two shades of green. The Asters are painted in white with blue edging and accents on the petals and orange centers. Stems are two shades of green with orange accents. The Wild Lilies are painted in yellow and orange, with white accents and deep wine colored stamens. Stems and leaves are two shades of green with yellow,  orange, and white accents. Glasses are totally frosted with that distinctive Gay Fad satin-smooth frosting and carry the Libbey script L on their bottoms. I have been unable to specifically document that these are, in fact, Gay Fad designs, but I strongly believe they are based on the following documentation: Gay Fad decorated Libbey blanks. Gay Fad produced satin-smooth frosting. Washington Co. frosting is also very smooth, but the Washington Co. aster design is completely different than the asters on our glass; likewise for Washington’s black-eyed susan design. (Hansetta’s aster design is also completely different than the asters on our glass.) As far as I know, “Garden Flowers” is not an official design name of Gay Fad or any other company; it just seemed appropriate for this truly beautiful set of glasses. Each one is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or color loss. Require hand washing to preserve the finish and the paint. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 6 Gay Fad frosted “Rose” zombie glasses

When Fran Taylor’s niece Pat sent us a picture of the beautiful Gay Fad rose lamp that Fran gave to Pat’s parents as a wedding gift in 1942, we never expected to find this design on a set of frosted glasses, but here they are! These tall slender glasses stand 7" tall with diameters of 2-3/8" at their rims and 2-1/8" at their bases. The front of each glass features a large spray of roses hand-painted in multiple soft shades of pink with white edging and accents and green stems and leaves. You can feel the raised paint and see the delicate brush strokes. Since they’re hand-painted, the colors and even the design itself vary ever so slightly from glass to glass, making each one its own unique work of art. All carry the Gay Fad mark and all are completely frosted in Gay Fad’s unique satin-smooth frosting. I believe these are Libbey glasses because you can see the Libbey embossed script L in a circle on the bottom of one of them. The bottoms of the other five appear to be either unmarked or the embossing has worn down to the point where it’s illegible, a strong indication that these glasses do indeed date from the late 1940's. All six glasses are in outstanding condition, particularly considering their age. They have no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches, and the colors are strong and true, except for the green GF mark on one of them that has partially rubbed away. They require hand washing to preserve both the paint and the finish.  (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Brass and abalone cordials

This is a set of 8 exquisite brass cordials from Mexico. Inlaid panels of shimmering iridescent abalone shell encircle the exterior of the 1-1/2" deep cup portion that tapers down to a slender stem ending in a 1-3/8" diameter pedestal foot. Handmade by an unknown Mexican artisan, each cordial is ever so slightly different in size and shape, making them even more unique. They stand 3" tall and are approximately 1" in diameter at the mouth. The underside of several of the feet are incised “Hecho en Mexico” (Spanish for “Made in Mexico”) and although the others are unmarked, obviously all 8 were made to be a set. Wonderful patina which we have made no attempt to clean or polish. Superb vintage condition with no damage whatsoever to either the brass or the abalone shells. An absolutely stunning cordial set!

Set of 8 roly poly glasses w/ brass sheaths

This is a set of eight small roly poly glasses made of clear glass and clad in brass. I would guess they date to the 1950's and were probably meant to be cocktail glasses for serving brandy or maybe sipping whiskey. The bottoms have a faint stamp that says “Gilley Inc, New York”, so it’s possible they came from the famous Gilley’s Club. They are  2-1/4" high x 2-1/4" diameter at the rim. The glass portions of all eight are in perfect condition, with no chips, nicks, or cracks. The brass sheaths show discoloration at their top edges, undoubtedly from not being dried carefully enough after repeated washings, and several of them have vertical hairline cracks that in no way affect the usefulness of the glasses and in fact just add to their attractive vintage appearance. Quite a unique set of barware. I’ve never seen another like it! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 6 Gay Fad frosted “Poker” tumblers

Next time it’s your turn to host the poker party, try serving the drinks in this whimsical set of 6 frosted Poker tumblers. Each one features a different poker phrase and associated caricature drawing of a decidedly 1940's looking poker player. Sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. Set includes “4 Aces,” “2 Pair,” “I call,” “I’ll stay,” “Pass,” and of course that old favorite “Poker-face.” Phrases are painted in red and caricatures are painted in black. Tumblers stand 6-1/4" tall with diameters of 2-7/8" at their rims and 2-1/2" at their bases. Completely frosted in Gay Fad’s signature satin-smooth frosting. Bottoms carry the F in a shield mark of Federal Glass. All six tumblers are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, scratches, or color loss. Require hand washing to preserve both the paint and the finish. As Gay Fad’s 1953 catalog said, these glasses “guarantee a full house every time and give each guest at least one good hand per round!” If you already have a partial set of these tumblers but are missing the Poker-face, see our individual Poker-Face tumbler.

Set of 4 Jostens pewter cordials

This is a set of four elegantly simple pewter cordials that stand 4-1/2" tall with diameters of 2-1/2" at their flared mouths and 2-1/4" at their pedestal bases. Marked “Jostens Pewter” on their concave bottoms. Founded in 1897, Jostens is best known for producing high school class rings, etc., but also manufactures pewter products for companies to give as gifts to their employees in recognition of special achievements and/or long service. These cordials were given to General Electric employees in the 1980s, but unlike the pewter tankards that GE also gave to employees during the same period, these cordials are free of a company logo. All four cordials are in excellent condition with no dings or dents and have developed lovely patinas which should, if you choose, clean up quite easily. (Click on picture for more images.)

Set of 4 Art Nouveau cordials

This set of four cordial glasses feature silvertone metal overlays with a distinctly Art Nouveau look of flowing florals and foliage surrounded with sweeping curves. Stems and bases are also metal. Standing 3-3/4" tall, each glass is 1-7/8" in diameter at both its rim and its beaded-edge base. Unmarked as to maker. Great vintage condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks to the glass. One base has a tiny ding at its edge and one has a spot. Two of the glasses have become unglued to their casings, but remain in place during normal usage. (Click on picture for more images.)

Set of 6 drip glaze glasses

Well, here’s something unusual -- a set of six very attractive little 3-1/2" tall pottery glasses in a deep chocolate brown with brown and white drip glaze. Although they stand 3-1/2" high outside, their interior height is only 2-1/2" because the exterior bottoms are not flat, but instead curve upward and inward. They are 2-7/8" in diameter at the rim, tapering to a 2" diameter base. All are unmarked and all are in perfect condition: no chips, cracks, crazing, or even glaze pops. Drip glaze mugs and bowls are fairly commonplace, but this is the first set of drip glaze glasses I’ve ever seen! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 8 Gay Fad frosted “Toasts” glasses

Toast your friends and family in eight different languages with this colorful set of Gay Fad frosted “Toasts” glasses first introduced in 1951! The hand-painted design on each glass features the toast word(s) of a particular country and full-color illustrations representative of that country. In alphabetical order, the glasses are:

England – Cheerio with a British shield on a wooden signpost and a 3-masted sailing ship out in the harbor.

France – A Votre Sante with a wine bottle and two glasses on an outdoor bistro table with a large flower above.

Germany – Ein Prosit with a large beer stein, long German pipe, and Back Forest trees.

Ireland – Slante with Irish shamrocks and a leprechaun hat and pipe.

Italy – La Salute with a large bunch of grapes, a wine glass, and a Roman column.

Mexico – Salud with a large Mexican sombrero and flowering saguaro cactus.

Sweden – Skol with Swedish dancers and flowers.

United States – Here’s How with a foaming beer glass flanked by cigar store Indians.

Glasses stand 5-1/2" tall with diameters of 2-3/4" at their rims and 2-3/8" at their bases and are completely frosted in Gay Fad’s signature satin-smooth frosting. Bottoms carry the F in a shield mark of Federal Glass. Quite heavy for their size with thick heavy bottoms. As Gay Fad’s ad in the July, 1953 Gift and Art Buyer said: “Here’s a way to make lively conversation – and put real zip into your entertainment – Gay Fad Toast [glasses]. Inscribed with toasts in 12 languages, they’re a sure way to add fun to the party. Colorful, ceramic fired on smooth white frosted glass, these hand-decorated toasts last the lifetime of the glass.” And these designs certainly have. All colors are still bright and true after nearly 60 years! Outstanding vintage condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratching, but an occasional spot of wear to the frosting. Require hand washing to preserve the paint and the finish. Here’s looking at you, kid! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 6 Gay Fad “Dickens” bar glasses

This set of six hand-decorated bar glasses is also from Gay Fad’s “Dickens” series that features a separate full-color Dickens character on each glass:

Tiny Tim (A Christmas Carol) – Tiny Tim, with his crutch, stands in front of a multi-paned window flanked by lit candles in sconces and topped by a spray of holly.

Fagin (Oliver Twist) – The evil smirking Fagin, dressed in a long fir-trimmed robe and green hat, cooks dinner in a large long-handled pan thrust into an open smoking fire. Behind him a single candle in a bottle glows in the middle of a small table.

Oliver Twist (Oliver Twist) – Oliver, with hat in hand and his knapsack tied to a stick on his shoulder also stands in front of Fagin’s open fireplace with the same sincle candle in a bottle glowing in the middle of the small table.

Fat Boy (The Pickwick Papers) – Fat Boy stands in a vine-covered arbor next to a house with smoking chimneys.

Mr. Pickwick (The Pickwick Papers) – Mr. Pickwick himself strikes a pose in the same vine-covered arbor next to a house with smoking chimneys.

David Copperfield (David Copperfield) – David strolls through the village, walking on a cobblestone sidewalk.

Each bar glass, probably meant for serving drinks “on the rocks,” is completely frosted in Gay Fad’s signature satin-smooth frosting and stands of 3-1/2" tall with diameters of 2-7/8" at its rim and 2-1/4" at thick unmarked bottom. All six glasses are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or paint loss. Require hand washing to preserve the paint and the finish. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Set of 3 Gay Fad “Boys Night Out” glasses

This is a set of three frosted glasses, each of which depicts one of the “boys” in what appears to be a not-so-friendly card game! Of course, “Powerhouse” is having a fine ol’ time grinning and flicking his cigar ashes all over the place, but “Bluffer” and “Blitzed” – gee, sound like a couple of Santa’s reindeer – seem to be getting the worst of the deal, both literally and figuratively! All graphics and lettering are in dark brown, although there’s hint of red on Powerhouse’s boutonniere and a hint of blue on Bluffer’s hair and clothes. I can’t definitively prove that these are a Gay Fad design since they don’t appear in any of the Gay Fad catalogs or ads I’ve seen, but my good friend and co-author Donna McGrady and I agree that based on the style of the design and the satin-smooth frosting of the glasses, these were indeed painted by Gay Fad. These glasses stand 4-3/4" tall with diameters of 2-5/8" at their rims and 2-1/4" at their unmarked bases. A really fun set of glasses and all are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or color loss. Require hand washing to preserve the paint and finish. (Click on picture for more images.)

Set of 8 “The Beast in Me” tumblers

This waaaaay cool set of eight tumblers is in Gay Fad’s “Beast in Me” design introduced in the 1958 Gay Fad Barware Illustrated Price List. Each clear glass tumbler features a cartoon beast, two in turquoise (bear and octopus), two in yellow-green (jackass and deer), two in siamese pink (monkey and cat), and two in golden yellow (lion and wolf), with “the beast in me” in a banner underneath. Kitchy, of course, but also amazingly beautiful given the 24 k gold portion of each banner and the gold cocktail glass or bottle held by each beast. Each tumbler is signed, with the Gay Fad signature done in the same color as that tumbler’s beast. I’ve never before seen a set of eight signed Gay Fad glasses where the signature color varies from glass to glass! Tumblers stand a shade over 5-1/2" tall with diameters of 2-3/4" at their rims and 2-3/8" at their heavy weighted bottoms. All eight tumblers are in pristine condition and look like they’ve never been used. No nicks, chips, cracks, scratches, or color loss. Truly an outstanding set of Gay Fad glassware! As an added bonus, we will include the page from Gay Fad: Fran Taylor’s Extraordinary Legacy where this design is shown. Require hand washing to preserve the paint, especially the gold.

Set of 8 “Golden Eagle” tumblers

This is a set of eight exquisite “Golden Eagle” tumblers, a design introduced via a Gay Fad ad in the February, 1957 issue of Gift and Art Buyer. The ad copy reads: “Golden Eagle in all its splendor spreads its wings to decorate Gay Fad’s new barware for the discriminating customer who is seeking something to please while style trends come and go. This classic theme is interpreted in satin white with shiny and embossed 24K gold.” Classic indeed! This is America’s national bird in all his gold-on-gold glory surrounded by six satin white vertical stripes and numerous gold stars. Tumblers are 5-1/2" tall with a diameter of 2-3/4". Heavy weighted bases. Excellent condition with no chips, nicks, or cracks, and only slight wear to a few of the stars. As an added bonus, we will include the page from Gay Fad: Fran Taylor’s Extraordinary Legacy where this design is shown. These tumblers require hand washing. Putting them in the dishwasher will ruin the gold paint! Truly an outstanding set of glassware – they positively glow! Be sure to see our Golden Eagle decanter and set of eight double shot glasses.
