Eye Candy: Libbey Glassware

On a hot summer's day, nothing is better than some iced tea or lemonade in a pretty vintage glass! One of my favorite vintage glassware makers is Libbey Glass. Their patterns range from sweet florals to glam designs.  Which style would you like to see in your vintage kitchen?

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to come across two of the above sets of glasses (the lilac and white floral glasses and the green and red Asian glasses).  The lilac glasses happened to come with their original advertising insert, which was quite a treat to find!  I scanned it, and here it is for your viewing pleasure:

Wow! I've seen Libbey glassware, but never knew there were so many great designs! You may have just started a new addiction for me. I'll send you the bill for my recovery... ;)

I've admired Libby glassware in the past, but never realized the extent of the styles they had! I am loving the pastel strip ones!

I love vintage glassware and barware. These are some of the nicest examples I've seen. The Asian kitty cat glasses definitely make me purr!
