You can read more about the company that manufactured these iconic glasses at this web site; http://www.thelostcod.com/collections/schwartz-coffee-spices, where I found some interesting information:

IN THE 1950’S SCHWARTZ BEGAN SELLING PREPARED MUSTARD AND PEANUT BUTTER IN REUSABLE GLASSES EMBLAZONED WITH PLAYING CARD SUITS – ACES, HEARTS, CLUBS & SPADES.  MANY KIDS GREW UP WITH THESE AS THE ONLY DRINKING GLASSES IN THEIR HOUSE, BUT TODAY THEY ARE COLLECTOR’S ITEMS.

I certainly remember having these glasses growing up.  Almost everyone played cards during that era, which is why these were so popular.  These are the taller version of the glasses.

They are now much harder to find in good condition. Many people put them in the dishwasher which dulls  the painted design.  All vintage glasses should be handwashed to keep the finishes nice and shiny.

They are priced individually at $ 5 each.

Available at my booth in the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON. Open 7 days a week, 10 to 5 all year round.

Please note: These glasses are now SOLD!!!
