An incredibly rare find, this set includes both a pitcher and six glasses beautifully etched with a charming golf scene. As was explained to the auctioneer by someone who knows more about depression glass than he does, this set was likely made by Cambridge in the 1920s but goes beyond the cheap depression glass found in dime stores, etc.  A person would have needed to look on the top floor of a big department store to find such an ornate set.  

The pitcher and glasses measure approximately as follows: Glasses just over 2  1/2” wide and just under 5” tall. Pitcher approximately 9” front to back (including handle), 8” tall, and 5 1/2” side to side.

There are no issues at all with this set—no chips around the rims, no cracks anywhere.  As one would want to see as evidence of age, there are a few bubbles in the glass picture. Those are the results of how these glass pieces were made so many decades ago.

While this set is upward of 100 years old, with nary a flaw, it remains perfect for lemonade, ice tea, or some such on a hot summer's day. As display pieces, they are loaded with sparkle and shine.
