  • Vintage crystal stemware set with cut rohmbus shaped stems.  The 4-sided stem is solid crystal with sharp edges.  The uneven square causes a prism effect.  Beautiful quality crystal stemware from the Atomic 1950s. 
  • Made by Bryce Brothers (1841-1965), pattern number 961, called Aquarius.  The Aquarius pattern was patented in 1950 and was still active in 1966 when Bryce merged with Lenox.  It is no longer active, date of retirement unknown.  Catalog advertisement in image 5 was published in the 1950s.  It is interesting that the advertisement brags the pattern will be available 'forever'. It hasn't been available for over 45 years.
  • The Bryce glass factory was located in Mt. Pleasant, PA on the property of the Bryce mansion which burned to the ground in 1998.  Since 1841 the company experienced mergers, closures and name changes resulting from outside influences such as prohibition and world wars.  Through the years they were known as Bryce, McKee & Co. Bryce, Richards & Co., Bryce, Walker & Co., Bryce Brothers, and Bryce Higbee & Co. All are collectible names in glass today. In addition, Bryce was a member of the US Glass coalition, a consortium of factories which banded together to survive hard economic times during the Great Depression.
  • Set of 10 (imagea show only 8) includes (5) champagne/sherbert 4" tall with a 3.75" wide mouth; all in perfect condition, and (5) bell shape cocktail 4½" tall with a 3.25" wide mouth - 1 with a tiny smooth inner rim flake barely detectable, and one with a small rough outer rim chip that is visible.  The uneven cubed stems with the sharp edges are all in perfect condition which is unusual.  The crystal is nice quality with a lingering tone.  All are perfect for cocktails of any kind, great for cocktail parties.
