From the China Cabinet: Southern Belle Tumblers

I’ve mentioned that while on vacation, I do more thrifting than sunning much of the time…what can I say, vacation is relative to what you enjoy. My most recent trip to Ormond Beach, Florida yielded a few treasures, but I wasn’t able to bring everything home with me. Looking back, I wish I had gotten these vintage tumblers, but alas it wasn’t meant to be.

Made by the Anchor Hocking company, these antique frosted glasses with southern belles etched on them are just adorable. Can’t you picture a gathering of demure southern ladies of times gone by enjoying a tall glass of sweet tea and possibly a pimento cheese sandwich (on white bread cut in triangles)? I bet bridge was played and gossip was shared. Sigh…I often think I was born in the wrong era.

If you’d like a set of these charming glasses for your collection, do a search for “southern belle frosted beverage glasses” and you should find several options. Or who knows, maybe you already have a set! If so, I’m mighty jealous.

  1. These are fantastic! I've seen similar ones before, but never really need glasses. I might just need to buy some anyway.

  3. What lovely glasses! I don't ever remember seeing any quite like these. I hate when I regret not buying something. Thanks for the post.
