In 1970 Libbey Glass Company introduced its Accent Line. It was made from 1970-1979. It was designed by Freda Diamond, lead designer for Libbey from 1942-1979. Her work is just starting to be recognized by curators, dealers, and collectors. A brilliant and talented woman!
It included a line of stemware. There were four different shapes in the line: #3768 - 6 1/2 ounce Wine/Juice, #3778 - 8 ounce Sherbet/Champagne, #37545 - 9 1/2 ounce footed Rocks, and #3775 - 11 3/4 ounces Goblet.
In addition, there were four tumbler shapes: 1) #369 16 oz. Cooler, 2) #376 12 oz. Beverage, 3) #3749 oz. Rocks - 3 1/4”, 4) #? 6 oz Juice.
It was described as "A modern classic ... from Libbey, the longtime pace setter in stemware." "Here’s stemware for today ... stemware with style that’s just right for the informal dining and entertaining of America’s lifestyle in the 70s. Stury one-piece construction, warm Tawny color, high style -- all combine to make this a sure winner .. and a natural companion item to Tawny Accent tumblers." In this photo you see (l-r): champagne/sherbet, 16 oz. cooler, 12 oz. beverage, 6 1/2 oz. wine/juice, 9 oz. rocks I really like their smooth flowing lines. I also like the fact that Libbey was joining the movement in industrial design of multi-use items.
I have a variety of each item shown at both Barge Canal Market off Pine Street in Burlington Vermont.
