WHAT A SUPERB VALENTINES DAY GIFT FOR THE GLASS COLLECTOR IN YOUR LIFE!

THIS ELEGANT CIRCA 1966 SET OF SIX 15 OUNCE INDIANA GLASS DIAMOND POINT RUBY STAIN CRYSTAL TUMBLERS ARE BEAUTIES!!! I CAN ONLY FIND A FEW SPECKS OF RUBY FLASH MISSING ON EACH AND MOST SPECKS APPEAR TO BE FROM MANUFACTURING ! (PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE VERY, VERY TINY SPECKS AND NOT THE LIGHT FLASHES FROM MY CAMERA THAT YOU SEE IN THE PICS BELOW!) THIS PATTERN DATES BACK TO THE 1850'S AND HAS ALSO BEEN KNOWN BY THE NAMES MITERED DIAMOND, SAWTOOTH, DIAMOND AND DIAMOND POINT. YOU CAN REFERENCE THESE GORGEOUS PIECES IN COLLECTIBLE GLASSWARE FROM THE 40'S, 50'S & 60'S - EIGHTH EDITION BY GENE & CATHY FLORENCE, PAGE 57. (PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PICTURE IN THE BOOK IS OF A 9 OUNCE TUMBLER, THESE ARE THE LARGER 15 OUNCE TUMBLERS!) ACCORDING TO THE BOOK IMPERIAL DIAMOND POINT RUBY STAIN IS THE MOST DESIRABLE AND COLLECTIBLE AND HAS REALLY TAKEN A GIANT LEAP FORWARD IN THE COLLECTORS WORLD! PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE GLASSES ONLY! THE 2ND PICTURE IS JUST TO SHOW YOU WHAT THE GLASSES LOOK LIKE SITTING ON THE TRAY THAT I ALSO HAVE LISTED. EACH GLASS WEIGHS ALMOST 3/4 POUND AND THEY ARE QUITE STURDY, BUT INSURANCE IS REQUIRED ON THIS SET AND IS INCLUDED IN THE SHIPPING PRICE. NO NEED TO ADD TO YOUR TOTAL!

I ALWAYS CHECK EVERYTHING OVER
