I have to admit my most exciting moments in watching Mad Men are when I recognize a familiar face, namely one of my favorite vintage housewares. My husband thinks I am absolute nut when I blurt "Oh my God!!! Megan is drinking wine from a Libbey Accent wine glass! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!"
my inner Libbey nerd is thinking "Wow. Megan has a secret time
machine!" The wine
glass she drinks from one her California deck in 1969 appears to be a
tawny Libbey Accent wine glass, but as far as I can tell Accent was not
introduced until April 1970. Or maybe she just has inside
connections. Maybe Don had the Libbey account and they never mention it
on the show...
I was very excited to see one of my favorite Libbey patterns on the
show. And I am sure the set designers will continue to rock my world
when season 7 resumes. Until then I think I will look back at each
episode. More to come.
