One of the reasons for the continuing popularity of the Vintage trend is almost certainly the vivid images it evokes in people’s minds. Of the roaring 20s, a time of glamourous black-and-white movie stars but also notorious gangsters who made their fortunes in the illegal liquor trade that the Prohibition era spawned.
Smoke-filled back rooms, gangsters in fedora hats, their ‘molls’ in cocktail dresses, skilled barmen creating legendary cocktails with one eye always on the door on the lookout for an unwanted visit from the local cops. The SPKSY family of glassware look like they’ve just been lifted from a popular speakeasy in 1920s Chicago or New York: sharp as a chalk stripe suit, stylish as a jazzman’s solo and tough as they come.
Safe Edge Rim Guarantee: Libbey’s Retro Cocktail glassware features Libbey’s exclusive Safedge® Rim Lifetime Guarantee for rim chippage. If the rim of any Safedge® item chips, Libbey guarantees to replace or refund the price of the glass.
For almost two centuries, Libbey has been known as the leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of high-quality glass tableware, especially in the North American market.
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, William, moved the company to Toledo, Ohio. The Northwest Ohio area offered abundant natural gas resources and access to large deposits of high quality sand. The rest, as they say, is history.
