Antique Meguiar's Mirror Glaze Glasses (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29064)

These glasses were a birthday gift and I've been storing them for years and I finally decided it was time to put them to get them out and actually use them for special occasions. Sorry the pictures aren't very good, it's hard to photograph clear glass with black ink and gold ? writing. I may bring them to work and let one of our 'real' photography experts take a stab at capturing their timeless beauty.

They're actually my most prized Meguiar's memorabilia. ;)

Just when I thought I've seen everything. Those are really cool Mike!

How old are those?

With Mirror Glaze on the label instead of Mirror Bright and Pasadena, California also on the label my guess is they are from the 1960's. I've sent Dick Koeth an e-mail to see if he remembers anything about these glasses. Dick is one of the longest time Meguiar's employees and very knowledgeable about Meguiar's past.

The building is the actual Pasadena office back in the 1960's through to the 1980's. Meguiar's moved to the Irvine office in 1989

Those are super COOL!

I am no expert camera guy... But!

Just fill the glasses with a contrasting liquid. Then we'll be able to see all the little details. Maybe yellow or red.

Or milk! :thinking1

Those are awesome.

My wife would chuckle but then I point to her thousands of dollars worth of Precious Moments in a cabinet of wood and glass..... behind me and then she says "shut up, not the same." I say, nah uh :D

Good show :bigups

Cool! I was just curious since the building looked like prairie style architecture. The 60's would have been towards the end of that style I think. I never learned my architectural history like I should.

I wonder, were they a premium that you could buy. Like today's gift paks. Or were they more for the distributors? That is a great collection.

I would just keep them as display.

Being that old they may have been painted with lead paint

Maybe in about 40 years, the Meguiar's mug I got in this year's gift set will be a collector's item!
Truth be told, the mug was the deciding factor in whether I would purchase the gift set or not.
