In the 1930s, Libbey was the first to make machine-decorated glass, and the first to mass produce colored and frosted glass. To cash in on the wild popularity of Gone With the Wind, Libbey produced the "southern series." The "Plantation Scenes" pattern, discontinued in 1940, featured a combination of scenes depicting the distinct Old South of GWTW: The Southern Gentleman, The Garden Party, Lawn Party, Steam Boat Races, and Southern Mansion.
We have come across several glasses in four of the five scenes. They are all in pristine condition without chips, cracks, flea bites or any degradation of the frosted glass finish or decoration. They measure 6 3/4 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
For sale in this listing is one "Southern Gentleman" glass. Please check the quantity available on this listing if you would like to purchase more than one.
We sell select vintage items. They are not new, and rarely look new. They are, in many cases, older than we are, and have seen life and times. We do not repair or replace parts on any of the items we sell. They came to us in the condition they are now, and are sold as is.
When we say an item is in “excellent vintage condition”, we mean just that – it is in excellent condition for its age. We are very particular about what we buy and sell, and describe things to the best of our ability, in a fair and accurate way. Please - closely review the photos using the zoom tool, and pay attention to the descriptions of the items you wish to purchase. If you have questions about anything at all, we will gladly answer them prior to your purchase.
Our packing materials may be unsightly, albeit brilliantly effective. We try to reuse as much material as possible from our business. We wish you would use it again, too.

GLASS and CERAMICS
Pressed, molded or blown Glass has imperfections from the manufacturing process. These imperfections are inherited from production and are not considered damage. These minor imperfections often occur, such as: small defects in hand painting, color variations, creases or lines from molds, tiny air bubbles or small debris encased in glass is considered natural and is not going to be scrutinized or considered damage. However, I will make note if I notice any larger imperfections that appear to be beyond the acceptable norm as a defect.
