The three gorgeous Tiffin Franciscan Madeira Crystal Plum glass tumblers are in great to excellent condition. One of the three tumblers has a darker appearance. While all Tiffin Glass pieces are very collectible, there are some that are much rarer than others. These Tiffin Crystal Plum glass tumblers are very rare. Even more so, the two glass tumblers that are lighter in appearance, are rarer still. The reason for their identical style but different shade is most likely due to the fact they were part of different runs or made at separate locations.
Each of these Tiffin water glasses hold a liquid capacity of approximately 12 oz. - or just a little over if filled to the rim.
The heavy base of each tumbler consists of seven wedge-like sides. If some one had never picked up a Tiffin Crystal Plum tumbler of this style, they would be surprised at the amount of quality and sheer weight found with each of these gorgeous water glasses.
The decoration running around the exterior of each of these Tiffin tumblers appears to be cut-glass with faceted oval sections much like one might expect to see on a rare jewel.
The particular style and color of these particular Tiffin glass tumblers is sometimes referred to as Crystal Plum.
The darker purple water glass has what appears to be a pin-size surface chip on the inside of the rim - very odd area and most likely came from a utensil being placed inside the glass. However, it is much too small for a utensil. Furthermore, it is so hard to notice that one must actually run a fingernail around the inside of the rim to catch it. In addition, it might be better described as a tiny surface mark in the glass. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on these gorgeous Tiffin water glasses. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the tumblers - mainly on the bottom of each tumbler where they have come in contact with different surfaces.
The decorative possibilities for these beautiful amethyst purple water glasses are many. The china cabinet or display curio would be enhanced by the addition of these gorgeous Tiffin treasures. Also, the open kitchen or dining area shelf would welcome these beautiful water glasses for their exquisite design and purple appearance. In addition, the growing Tiffin Glass collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of these high-quality glass collectibles.
The collector will appreciate these gorgeous Tiffin Franciscan Madeira Crystal Plum tumblers for their great to excellent condition and rare cut-glass appearance.
Together, the three gorgeous Tiffin Franciscan Madeira Crystal Plum tumblers weigh 62.1 oz.
Each Tiffin water glass measures 5 5/8" tall x 2.25" wide across the base from outside to outside x 3" wide across the rim from outside to outside.

***Shipping will include insurance
***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
