Vintage Culver Iris Cinnabar Tray

Mid-Century Serving Platter by Culver in Cinnabar Iris Pattern with 22 K Gold


A vintage 22K gold serving platter by Culver from Snowdrift Antiques.


Culver Ltd. was founded in Brooklyn, NY in 1939. Back in the day, Culver glasses were known to be lavish and full of style with their 22K gold accents. From the 1950s through the 1960s Culver gained fame and their products became collectible, being sold only at high end stores. Culver was sold in 1996. Sixty years later, they remain lavish and full of style.


This glass serving platter from Culver is in the pattern Cinnabar Iris, also known as CUV62 and I have also seen it referred to as “Iris Cinnabar”.  It features irises in a deep rusty red color called cinnabar and some in Culver’s signature 22K gold with green leaf fronds highlighted in gold. Internet searching tells me it is one of the harder to find patterns.  This piece is marked with the Culver “ © Culver, LTD. “ signature in script. That tells us it is from the mid-1950s through 1960s.


It measures 14 ½ inches in diameter.  The curve on the circumference gives it a depth of about 1 inch.


This piece is in excellent vintage condition. There is very minor wear to a grass tip or two, but you have to really search for it. There are no chips, nicks or cracks. 

This is a beautiful and uncommon 22K gold Culver platter that will brighten up any service or bar setup.


We also have a Cinnabar Iris ice bucket in this shop.
