Most companies started making and decorating different kinds of drinking glasses since the 1920s. During this time, they designed the tumblers by hand. This means that each leaf, flower, or fruit or any design pattern painted on the glass was cautiously done one at a time by a group of women employed by the company. There may have been more than 100 workers in leading companies to design on the glasses.
