WWLP Entertain: Vintage Dorothy Thorpe Vintage Punchbowl

This Dorothy Thorpe punch bowl is now mine. I am probably far more obsessed with it than any woman buying this in the 1960’s ever was. Dorothy Thorpe was a popular glassware designer and a lot of her glass sets were sold in higher end department stores throughout mid-century America.

There are TONS of similar sets available on ebay and etsy and surprisingly a lot of them are in perfect condition. I picked this one up at an antique mall in the Fox Lake area. The glasses on this set are more cylindrical than the more famous (thanks to Mad Men) roly poly style–which is also abundantly available online and at antique stores.
