These glasses are from my collection of Currier and Ives. I love everything C & I and have quite a collection of various items depicting their wonderful scenes, but have decided to downsize this collection to those things I either use or can easily display. I've been collecting C & I for over 30 years, so if you're a collector you'll want to check back often.
Currier and Ives illustrations have a wonderful nostalgic feel that is perfect for holiday entertaining. These glasses are a great gift for the vintage C & I collector someone who just loves winter scenes.
Thanks for stopping in! Have a wonderful day!
