Cheerful Glass Juice Pitchers Were Popular In 1950-60s Kitchens
Capped juice pitchers and open "Juice Jugs" which held fresh squeezed orange juice were popular kitchenwares during the 1940s, 1950s and into the 1960s. During the Postwar years, housewives also used these juice decanters to store orange, grapefruit, lemondade products which came in small frozen packages and were defrosted and mixed with water.
Boxed Juice Sets
Each company ran promotions of their juice glassware , offering boxed starter sets which may have had a 32 ounce container and four or more glasses featured.
