I have a sizeable selection of steins by Anheuser Bush (Bud steins, both holiday and general). I also carry some Avon Steins, ice buckets (by various manufacturers), ashtrays (primarily casinos like Harrah's, Mapes, Harold's Club and the like) and anything else I associate with a bar. However, most glassware is listed separately under the Glassware category.

Culver Glass

Culver Glass Company was an American glass manufacturer. The glassware was very popular in the 1950s and remains so to this day for many collectors. This glassware is getting harder and harder to find in very good or execellent condition. Too many people are putting it in their dishwashers - the shame of it!!! I have also found that not all pieces bear the Culver name. The signed Valencia pattern differs slighty from the unsigned. Many pieces were probably only marked with paper labels.

Some of their most popular pieces held Cambridge glass (line #6018 )compotes, salt and pepper shakers and other assorted glassware. The company closed in 1965.

Spode is one of the better known, high-quality china producers of England. The company has roots going back to the 1700s when Josiah Spode began developing his fine bone china. I have pieces from eleven of their patterns. Most of the pieces I have were produced in England. Like so many other manufacturers, Spode is now producing dinnerware made in China and, in my opinion, the quality is just not the same.
