Circa: 1955-1963
Manufacturer: Libbey Glass Company, Toledo, Ohio

Freda Diamond (1905-1998), "Designer for Everybody" - Libbey Glass Designer

Worked for Libbey from 1942-1979. From 1942 to 1979 she was the primary designer for the Libbey Glass Company, helping them pioneer in the production of inexpensive, highly decorative tumblers, stemware, and other pieces. Among the many patterns she was responsible for include Ripple, Tempo, Emerald Glass, Stardust, and many others that we grew up with in the 1950s and 1960s.

Named the "Designer for Everybody" by Life magazine in 1954, Freda Diamond enjoyed a highly successful, fifty-year career as a home furnishings consultant. From the 1930s through the 1980s, Diamond helped firms in many American industries to design affordable products for the mass market. If someone you know set up housekeeping in the mid-twentieth century, they probably owned something -- cabinets, drapes, kitchen canisters, plastic furniture, tables, lamps, mirrors, rugs, drinking glasses, or window shades -- designed by Freda Diamond.

From the 1957 catalog, here is their marketing language for the 1955-1963 Ripple Line: "Exciting Aqua color that "goes with anything" … rippling circles blown on inner surfaces give sparkling, changing, color … an important ingredient of Libbey’s "table recipes" for "setting an imaginative table".

Shown in this photo is a set of the 3 3/8 inch tall 6 oz Juicee glasses in Aqua.

In the 1955 catalog, Libbey introduced an exciting new line by Freda Diamond: the Ripple Line in Aqua in five shapes. In the 1959 Fall - 1960 Winter catalog they introduced the "Smoke" color in Ripple. The Mint color was added in 1961 along with Crystal. In 1962 a new color Amethyst was introduced. It exists also in their Gold color but I am not sure when it was in the line.
