THIS AUCTION IS FOR A SET OF FOUR ETCHED CACTUS BEVERAGE DRINKING GLASSES -SIZE SMALL WATER . THESE VINTAGE GLASSES WERE GIVEN OUT BY BLAKELY GAS STATIONS IN THE SOUTHWEST (MAINLY ARIZONA AND PARTS OF CALIFORNIA) AS A PROMOTIONAL ITEM BETWEEN THE 1950'S AND 1960'S.

THESE GLASSES ARE ETCHED WITH A LARGE SAGUARO IN THE CENTER OF EACH GLASS AND A SMALLER CACTUS ON EACH SIDE OF THE LARGE SAGUARO. THESE GLASSES ARE APPROX. 5 1/2 INCHES TALL; APPROX. 3 INCHES ACROSS AT THE MOUTH; AND APPROX. 2 INCHES ACROSS AT THE BASE.

AS FAR AS BLAKELY PROMOTIONAL GLASSES GO, THESE ETCHED TYPE GLASSES ARE THE HARDEST TO FIND AS OPPOSED TO THE FROSTED GLASSES OR THE CLEAR GLASSES WITH COLORFUL PRINTS. BECAUSE THIS STYLE OF GLASS IS SO ELEGANT, THEY WORK BEST WITH THE FINE CHINA THAT BLAKELY ALSO GAVE AWAY. DON'T GET ME WRONG, THEY ALSO LOOK FABULOUS WITH BLAKELY'S STONEWARE DINING SETS.

THE AUCTION IS FOR GLASSES ONLY, THE PICTURE OF THE BROCHURE IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY AS THESE GLASSES ARE SO UNCOMMON SOME COLLECTORS WERE NOT AWARE OF THIS THIRD STYLE OF BLAKELY GLASSES - AT LEAST IT WAS THAT WAY WHEN I STARTED COLLECTING THESE BEAUTIES!

THESE GLASSES ARE VINTAGE YET ARE IN VERY VERY NICE CONDITION.
