If you asked me before the flea market if I would be purchasing a set of wood tumblers I would have laughed. When I think of wood drinking cups I think of Danish teak or island bamboo not California redwood. However, that is exactly what I purchased at Sunday's flea market and I am so taken with them.
This set of 6 tumblers dates from the 1930's or 40's. Each was hand-painted and signed by well known artist George Reinbold.
This set would be a wonderful addition to the bar in a study or on the shelves of a library. I am so happy to be using these charming vessels for our upcoming "Settings" event at Le Potager. They will be part of our European woodland style holiday table.
These tumblers are indeed a wonderful treasure as a set but they would also be wonderful gifts individually. Consider filling unique vessels like these with chocolates, nuts, pens & pencils or even cash for a special holiday gift.
