Ceramic Bottoms Up Tumblers
This piece is a reproduction of the classic McKee glass "Bottoms Up" tumbler. It is ceramic but shows the same nude female figure draped over the tumbler. The nude is flesh colored, the background is off-white. It has an all over pearlized luster finish similar to Deco era Noritake. No mark of any kind.
Original McKee glass tumblers measure 3¼" in height; this ceramic knock-off is 2¾". Original glass tumblers always have the patent number 77725 molded between the heels and top rim. The glass repros do not have the patent number.
