This listing is for one set of 2 Large old fashioned tumblers in box. 2 sets are in the purple box and one set is in the black box just let me know which one you want when you pay. This has all been in storage for at least 30 years. Because of the type of crystal and that the company is no longer around it is very hard to get an accurate age on any of this. I know for sure that some is from the 1930s and the set had been added on to over the years but nothing is any newer then the 30 year mark. It is in brand new condition and includes the boxes unless otherwise noted. I will answer any questions you may have in a timely fashion. Please read and look at the pictures. Glass container manufacturing can be traced back for at least 400 years. However, it was only in the 19th century that commercial companies appeared on the scene. Amongst them, in 1867, the Edinburgh and Leith Flint Glass Company was established. Alexander Dixson Jenkinson took over the business upon the death of his father in 1880. Alexander Jenkinson died in 1909 and the business was inherited by Stanley Noel Jenkinson. 1955 brought a name change from the Edinburgh and Leith Flint Glass Company to The Edinburgh Crystal Glass Company. Further corporate activity took place in 1964 when Crown House Limited acquired The Edinburgh Crystal Glass Company and Thomas Webb and Sons. During 1969, there was a move to a site of over 7 acres 28,000 m. In Penicuik, Midlothian some 10 miles (16 km) from Edinburgh. Then in 1971 Edinburgh Crystal and Thomas Webb merged with Dema Glass, another Crown House subsidiary. Thomas Webb and Sons and The Edinburgh Crystal Glass Company traded well resulting in 1987 in being incorporated into the Coloroll Group. The new company moved all manufacturing and distribution to its site in Penicuik. In April 2004, Edinburgh Crystal bought Caithness Glass from the receivers Deloitte. Caithness Glass are notable for paperweights. In May 2006 the offices and warehouse were badly damaged by fire. On 26 July 2006 the Edinburgh Crystal Glass Company Ltd went into administration. Its two subsidiaries, the Caithness Glass Company Ltd and Selkirk Glass Ltd, continued to trade. On 5 August 2006 Caithness Glass Company Ltd went into administration. On 10 August 2006 Selkirk Glass Ltd went into administration. It ceased trading soon afterwards. In 2007 Waterford Wedgwood bought the Edinburgh Crystal company. Edinburgh Crystal continued as a brand name only with all manufacturing moved to Europe. Then, in January 2009, Waterford Wedgwood went into administration and were bought by KPS Capitol Partners. At this time the brand was discontinued. Please contact me if there is some sort of problem before you leave feedback so I can have a chance to fix the issue.
