Very nice quality set of 4 American Brilliant cut glass tumblers. The set was cut by the J.D. Bergen company of Meriden, CT. Bergen was another major player in the production of American Cut Glass. The tumblers are cut in the "Bedford" pattern. A classic pattern involving large hobstars and notched miters.
This was a well produced pattern by Bergen and it might not be that difficult to find a pitcher or decanter should one wish to make a set. This auction is for 4 tumblers. I also have a singel in a seperate auction.
The glass blanks are blown. They are excellent quality, crystal clear and heavy. Deep cutting also .
The tumblers meas ures 3 inches diameter and 3 3/4 inches tall. The pieces are in excellent condition with no chips or flakes. The rims are original. Flouresces under the blacklight to show American Brilliant (1876-1916).
