Cobalt Blue Wave Libbey Glass Set and Pitcher
This is a really wonderful 9 piece glass and pitcher set with a cobalt blue wave design, created by Libbey Glassware at the turn of the Century. This fun Libbey glass set and pitcher is the perfect complement for an afternoon beverage, iced tea, juice, or even for some sangria. The sturdy pitcher has a strong blue handle for a good grip and visibility. All the glasses have some good weight to them so that they are solid feeling, and easy to hold. It is remarkable that this set is in such great condition for its age. The pitcher measures 10 1/2 inches tall and each glass is 4 1/2 inches tall. They each have the blue embedded threading all the way from the bottom, where the cobalt seems to concentrate, to the very top of the glasses. The design work is really considered and unique for this time. They have a polished pontile, and as seen in the photographs, lovely line work from top to bottom. Libbey glassware is highly regarded around the country, and is a staple in the American home. Libbey hails originally from East Cambridge, Massachusetts, home of the New England Glass Company which was founded in 1818. In 1888, Edward Drummond Libbey, son of the first corporate owner, moved the company to Toledo, Ohio. Toledo offered abundant natural gas resources and access to large deposits of high quality sand. In 1892, the name was changed to The Libbey Glass Company, producing bottles, containers, window glass. The firm was best known for its cut glass. This 9 piece set is perfect for getting friends together, and is also a really nice way to present afternoon drink. The pitcher serves about 1.5 quarts, and generously fills the nine Libbey glass cups in one serving.
