Mr. Nibbs Soda Glass

Vintage Cups, Glasses and Mugs

It’s interesting to see the different promotional and corporate products made over the years. Every week we will feature a cool retro cup, glass or mug from our large collection. We’ll share what we’ve learned about them and welcome your additional input and comments.

This is a glass made for the Mr. Nibbs brand of beverages, which were drink mixers made in the 1940s by the Heinz Beverages division of the H. J. Heinz Company. The drink mixers they made included Ginger Ale, Club Soda and Grapefruit Mixer. After getting its start in 1888, the Heinz Company grew rapidly, producing a huge variety of food and beverages in the US and abroad by the 1920s. There isn’t a lot of information available about Mr. Nibbs, but evidently, the drink mixer business was another one that Heinz dabbled in during the 1940s, when this glass was made. It measures 4 ¾ inches high and was made by Libbey about 1944.

    Nancy,

    We can’t give estimates on the value of an item, as we are not appraisers.

    Hello, Heinz Beverages in Emsworth PA which manufactured Mr. Nibbs was founded by my great grandfather Joseph Heinz. He was in no way affiliated with the H.J. Heinz company. We have several of these glasses along with the Mr. Nibbs green bottles. Just wanted to help clarify! Thanks!
