My vintage collection is built from years of selectively shopping auctions, estate sales, yard sales and prop houses. I love the process of sorting through the vast amounts of vintage bar and glassware, envisioning it placed in a new scene, shooting it with my camera and then giving it a new home and meaning.
Continuing the history and story of the glassware & is my jam.
Culver Ltd was a glass company famous for their stunning decorative glassware in 22-karat gold.
Culver Ltd was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1939 by Irving Rothenberg. Culver Glass features real 22-karat gold decoration used effusively and magnificently especially from the late 1950’s on through the 1960’s. The company gained notoriety and its products became highly collectible and only sold at high-end department stores.
The company’s early production line featured acid etch, decalcomania, sandblasted, hand-painted, banded, sand-cut monogramming and silk screen. In the late 1950’s, Culver Ltd started the application of the 22-karat gold to their glassware. The super-heated, roll-on process of gold remains a secret today.
