Need Some Help

Okay ladies...has anybody ever heard of SOKOL'S? I bought these vintage glasses years ago because I loved the stripes and their colors, but I can't find any info about the name on them...HELP!!!! I'm thinking that maybe it was a grocery store or even maybe a drugstore...am I totally off? Last week I found this .69 cent beverage basket at GW and thought these cuties would look really great in it...whatcha think? Better go for now and do some housework...yuck!
                                                 Now y'all come back real soon,
                                                                    Linda

                                      What ever SOKOL's is...it was established
                                                             in 1910!!
I'm linking up here...

Sokol's Market and Catering in Queensbury has only been opened for approx. 30 years so I do not believe your glasses are a product from them. There is a SOKOL NEW YORK (see http://sokolnewyork.org/about/history/). The "AAU championships were won by Sokol New York teams in 1909 and again in 1910" but I do not see anything linking the glasses to them nor are the colors of the glasses that of the Czech and Slovak flags in the period of 1910.

Hope you find your answer! Love the basket!

Hmm -there's a Munny Sokol park in Tuscaloosa and I remember it as a prominent name but nothing more than that. I searched around a little and found a reference to the old Sokol's dept store in B'ham.

I sure don't know, Linda, but they are awesome.

I'm glad someone knew about them. They are really different looking.

Well, I guess you found some answers. Love the caddy! My great grandma gave me a bunch of little glasses similar to these. She called them swigs. Yours are very unique! :)

Coloradolady said...

very unusual glasses. I have no answers for you, but from the comments, it gives you a place to look some more. Hopefully, someone will recognize these and know more. Happy VTT!

It is interesting to read the comments on those vintage glasses. That's what I love about antiques. Always a story behind them!
