Georges Briard Egyptian Tumblers

I know these aren’t actually mugs but really tumblers – but they were still so interesting that I decided to put them up on the site. They are Georges Briard designed clear glass tumblers with some fanciful, kitschy Egyptian symbols on them. The design is printed in red, blue, black and gold metal leaf on the clear tumbler. The design looks pretty elaborate and over the top, and I almost didn’t pick them up (there were four but I only got the two).

The signature left no doubt that they were Briard designed items – these are the only items designed by him that I’ve come across so far at the thrift. I have no idea as to the date of when they were produced, but I’d guess 70s.
