Riviera Glass



From all the swanky swig glasses available in Shop 12, this is the only one I have no information or record of.  It reminds me of a day on the beach at Nice, with bathing beauties and umbrellas everywhere.

These glasses were used by Australian companies Kraft, Sanitarium, ETA & Cottee’s to sell jam, mayonnaise, sandwich relish, vegemite and peanut butter.  Once the contents were consumed you collected the glass and re-used it.  Pyro glazed they date from the 1940’s – 1960’s.  Most therefore are around 60 years old.
