12 Ruby Stain Flash Kings Crown Highball Glass Ice Tea Tumbler Tiffin Indiana Nr For Sale
12 RUBY FLASHED KING'S CROWN HIGHBALL GLASSES
Up for sale is a beautiful set of 12 flat bottom tumblers. I've seen them referred to as both highball glasses and ice tea tumblers. The pattern is called "King's Crown", also known as "Ruby Thumbprint" and "Excelsior". It was first manufactured by the U. S. Glass Company in 1891 and was later reproduced by Tiffin (1950-1965) and Indiana Glass (1970's). I believe these tumblers were made by the Indiana Glass Company, but I've seen identical ones also attributed to Tiffin. Either way, they're very attractive. Each tumbler stands about 5 1/2" tall and the top measures about 3" wide. I purchased this set at an estate sale several weeks ago.
Condition of these King's Crown highball glasses is generally EXCELLENT. One tumbler has a small rim chip but the other 11 are free of any chips, cracks, or fleabites. The ruby flashing looks great with just a few minor scratches. These tumblers appear to have been used very little. Overall, the set looks fantastic and would make a fine addition to any King's Crown table service. Please take a close look at the photos I've provided and judge condition for yourself. I think you'll be very pleased with this purchase.
If you collect the King's Crown pattern, particularly ruby flashed pieces, don't miss your opportunity to offer on this offering. These highball glasses are very hard to find and are currently unavailable from a popular online replacement dealer. My start price of only $9.99 (WITH ) is a ridiculous bargain and intended to spark interest. Retail price of these tumblers would be at least $10 EACH ($120 total value), IF you could find them to buy. So offer now while the price is right and check back often. These tumblers WILL be sold to the highest buyer!
