Set of Vintage Midcentury Music-subject Highball Glasses, (Eight Glasses)

Gay Fad Studios of Lancaster Ohio,

Circa  1950s.

(VM99004)


Each glass has black & gold music-inspired design on pink glass with scattered music notes on the back and the front with a stlized piano keyboard.


These glasses with the stunning black and gold musical design and soft pink interior is from Gay Fad’s Intermezzo, one of the designs in the Gaite line of glassware introduced by Gay Fad via an ad in the November, 1954, issue of Crockery & Glass Journal. The ad copy reads:

 “The French have a word for gay doings. . Gaite. .and we have a new line of glassware that the word just fits. Gaite – our vivacious sophisticates – modern glassware with the zing and swing of design that modern homemakers love. Exciting, high-fashion colors flash with 22-caret gold, gleam with ebony contrasts. For the sparkling new look, stock imaginative new Gaite Originals. . .done with verve for top sales appeal.”


Our tumbler stands 5-1/2" tall with diameters of 2-3/4" at its rim and 2-1/4" at its thick clear glass base. Ebony and gold design is of a  highly stylized grand piano lid and piano keyboard surrounded by numerous stylized gold musical notes, all on a pink background that is actually painted on the interior of the glass.:


Dimensions: 5 5/8 inches high x 2 7/8 inches diameter.
