Vintage Set of Eight Fred Press Gold Trojan horse Highball Glasses

OK, guys. I am going to bring you a series of posts that are very dear to my heart. My favorite vintage to collect is vintage drinkware. While I very rarely drink alcoholic beverages, I find that an icy glass of kombucha or even water tastes better when sipped from vintage glassware. I also love using vintage glasses at dinner parties – they are excellent conversation pieces!

I began collecting vintage drinkware in 2008. When I rented my first post-university apartment in San Francisco, I began populating my kitchen with vintage gold drinking glasses. The entire studio was decked out in mid-century modern vintage, complete with an orange velvet damask couch. The gold glasses fit in perfectly! I personally own several patterns designed by Georges Briard and other designers.

My mom recently showed me a pristine set of Trojan Horse vintage glasses in their original metal caddy. The pattern shows a black horse and an intricate, metallic gold design. When I saw this stunning set, I knew I had to share it with my readers.

Vintage gold glasses were often designed by famous artists. These particular glasses were designed by artist Fred Press. Prior to becoming a glassware designer, Fred Press was a famous sculptor and painter. He became Executive Vice President of Rubel and Company in the 1950s where he revolutionized glassware with his gorgeous designs, including this Trojan Horse design.

This particular glass design is quite expensive but there are some patterns that are more affordable. If you want to find a glass pattern that speaks to you and your style, some companies and designers to research include Georges Briard, Libbey, Fred Press, Gay Fad, and Cera. I’ve also gathered some gorgeous sets of glassware for you to peruse here on Faedra! Click on the pictures or captions to find these items on Etsy.
