Code: GLASS 2022
Beautiful vintage 1960s pair of matching Yera glasses with white rose designs and gold bands around the top and rim sourced from the Chettinad district of Tamil Nadu, South India. The roses are filled in one side and translucent on the other. This was an Indian brand launched in 1958 by the Alembic group that was founded in 1907. Alembic is one of the oldest industrial houses in India, and its glass business was set up because India’s requirement of glass bottles was being met by imports from Europe. The Second World War caused an abrupt break in the supply chain. As a result, Alembic had no bottles to package its pharmaceutical products ad so developed and produced its own by 1948, going on into other glassware later and still produces to this day. In good condition with no chips or scratches.
