Offered is a set of 3 vintage juice glasses made by Anchor Hocking featuring 22K gold rims and sprays of golden wheat. The tumblers have heavy bases and measure 4 inches high and 2 inches across the rim and they hold 5 ounces. These were offered as promotional pieces by Duz Detergent in the 1950s and 60s. The wheat pattern on these glasses complement dinnerware produced by both Homer Laughlin and Scio China as well as other companies.
Duz detergent, produced by Proctor and Gamble, had an excellent marketing tool. After buying a box of detergent, you would find a plate, cup, saucer, glass, flatware, or other item in the box. If you bought enough detergent, you would own a complete set of dinnerware. To increase sales, this promotion was advertised on I Love Lucy TV shows.
The glasses show little to no wear and are free from chips, cracks or cloudiness.
I do combine shipping and refund shipping overages in excess of $1.50 (covers shipping materials) above actual cost, I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.
Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.
All items are described as accurately as possible, and any damage noted. Items are twenty or more years old and may show wear consistent with age/use. I encourage you to ask any questions prior to purchase. I generally do not accept returns, but there are always exceptions, so please message me if you feel you need to return an item. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason please reach out right away so that we may reach an amicable solution, I want you to be happy with and enjoy your purchase!
I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes. I’m an easy going person and do this more as a hobby than a business, I like researching these old items to find their origins/history. If you want to discuss any items listed, tell me I’m way off base on my pricing, wrong on my description, or whatever convo me!
