Vintage Russel Wright Eclipse Glasses: Collectible Barware

  Barlett-Collins Russell Wright Eclipse Tumblers

In the 1958 Barlett-Collins catalog (reproduced in "The Decorated Tumbler" by Hazel Marie Weatherman, these glasses were advertised asRussel Wright Eclipse glasses for Bartlett-Collins "Eclipse Decoration By Russell Wright". The glasses came in several sizes: 4 oz Cocktail Tumbler, 9 oz Old Fashioned Tumbler, 13 oz "Boomer" Old fashioned Tumbler, 12 oz Hi-Ball Tumbler and 14 oz "Sooner" Zombie tumbler. The polka dot pattern is listed in four colors, green, blue, red, yellow. I am not sure what to tell you about prices. I have seen a lot of mixed up and partial sets on the internet with prices all over the place. Be sure to evaluate condition, such as scratching and color fading. Shop carefully before jumping in on big dollar price tags.
