Vintage Cups, Glasses and Mugs
In our blogs, we’ve been featuring a different promotional or corporate restaurantware product made over the years. This is another in the group of cool retro cups, glasses or mugs from our large collection. Here we’ll be sharing what we’ve learned about it and we welcome your additional input and comments.
A “Snowball” was a drink made with Squirt soda and gin. This glass was one in a series made to advertise Squirt soda as a drink mixer. The Snowball was made by mixing 1 part Advocaat liqueur with 2 parts Squirt soda and serving over ice.
This glass is 4 ¾ inches high and was manufactured in 1955 by the Federal Glass Co. This was the last in a series released each year beginning in 1949. During the 1950s, the Federal Glass Co. was a division of the Federal Paper Board Company. They closed in the late 1970s.
