Set of Six General Electric Double Old Fashioned Rocks Glasses with Gold Trim (LEO Design)

In hindsight, the “Mad Men” era fascinates us with both its sense of optimism for the future and naive respect for traditions past. It was a modern period on the cusp of modernity.

The glasses above, made for General Electric in 1963, celebrate the history (to that point) of electricity, electronics and lighting—stars and lightbulbs—and their Cleveland, Ohio campus, “Nela Park.”  Bold black and gold graphics are printed on the set of six double old fashioned glasses (set of six, $195).

Additional interesting, newly-acquired glassware tomorrow and in the days to come.
