Five for $2.92
Three for $2.12
These are 4 1/2" high and old about 5 oz
These are 3 3/4" high and old 4 ozs
So why are they special?
They are Boopie glasses!
Anchor Hocking was started in 1937 and these glasses were produced from 1941 until early 1960's and I have seen it said that it was produced into the 70's. This design has been hard to find facts about, but I am still hoping to learn more and when I do I will bring you the information.
One reason is the design has been called Berwick, Burple, Boopie and Inspiration (although this last pattern has a swirled bottom it seems) It has also been confused with Candlewick!
What is the difference between Boopie and Candlewick?
Boopie has the glass balls that seem to be touching each other
Candlewick they are sperated
This is Boopie
This is Candlewick
The Candlewick was made by the Imperial Glass Company
and is much more delicate looking
From the largest size I have
Water glasses (2) to the smallest the sherbet (1)
I must say I love my Boopie Glass!
It is not very expensive and I have read it came in three colors in addition to the clear. Amber, Green and Ruby!
I am joining in two parties today!
Linda at Coastal Charm
and Troy at I Refuse to Recede
I will be looking for more Boopie Glass when I go
on the World's Longest Yard Sale in August
