Here’s a recent Goodwill find….vintage Royal Ruby glassware! When I walked in the store, I didn’t get a shopping cart. My son went down one aisle and I went down another. When I saw all the red glassware, I was just giddy with delight. I stood guard over it and yelled at my son to go get me a cart!! There was just too much of it to hold all at once!
There were 8 tumbler glasses with 6 having the original label. After a little research, I found that the style of the creamers and sugar was part of the R-4000 series which was made in the mid 1950’s. Since these were all together, I’m guessing the all the pieces are from that period
Four salad plates…
and a creamer and sugar were in the mix but no cups.
Four swirl tumblers and four sherbet glasses.
I was just so excited because I’ve been wanting some type of Ruby Red for so long and also it’s just in time for the Christmas holiday! I have already used the sherbet glasses in a Halloween tablescape that you can see here.
Total spent for this little vintage collection…$12.98 plus tax! Replacements.com had the plates and sugar/creamer for $70!
The past couple of weeks I have found quite a bit at GW and I’ll be sharing my finds with you in the coming weeks.
Thanks for stopping by!
