Smoked Glass Water Goblets, Mid Century

21 Aug

smoky glasses

Set of 6 large smoked glass water goblets. These look mid century to me.  Smoked glass was very popular back in the 60’s and 70’s.  Hard to find these days.  These are crystal and could be by any number of makers. They have a  Swedish or Bohemian  look to them.

Please note these glasses are now SOLD!
