Shat-R-Pruf Roly Poly Tumblers with Rubberized Exteriors

11 May

IMG_7939

I saw an ebay auction that had the original box and the name was Shat-R-Pruf Roly Poly Tumblers by Color Craft Corp, Indianapolis, Indiana. The box advertises that they will not fade, are shatter proof, dishwasher safe, less condensation, beautiful icy lustre finish, keep liquids colder longer, will not stain, easy to hold, nest to save space, crystal clear glass inside Tu-tone Plastisol outside, heavy bottoms – they right themselves if tipped.   It also says: treat your tumblers like fine china, do not subject them to prolonged soaking.

I also saw a flyer on ebay that was from Healthway All Star Dairy that advertised these tumblers filled with cottage cheese for only $.79.  The first tumbler was  a free give away and then you paid for the rest of them, once a week.  There were 9 colours to collect.  The colours were blue, yellow, green, red, white, orange, lavender and charcoal. The ninth one was added later and was called honey brown.

Some people call the pattern Spaghetti or String.

Please note these glasses are now SOLD!!

These will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $4 each.

 

Dark Green Tall Wine Goblets, Roemers, Bubble Stems

26 Mar

 

IMG_7401

These three green bubble stemmed wine glasses are called Roemers or Rummers.  I don’t know who the manufacturer is, nor the era. I would guess them to be from the 1960’s because of the colour but I am hoping someone recognizes them and gets in touch.

They are quite tall and heavy.

The detail on the stem is quite unique.  They are called raspberry prunts and help the drinker grasp the stem. Roemers are popular in Germany and the Netherlands and the green colour was originally from impurities in the sand used to make the glass.  It was thought that the green colour went well with the white wine typically served in them.

They will be for sale shortly at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON

Priced at $ 15 each
