Six (6) Roly Poly glasses created for members of the U. Navy’s OPERATION DEEP FREEZE. These came from the estate of an ex-Seabee who had been part of TASK FORCE 43, which provided the logistics for Antarctic portion of the “International Geophysical Year 195758″. I estimate the date of these glasses to be circa 1960s. Glasses measure just over 3 1/4″ tall and 3 1/4″ in diameter at the rim. They are weighted at the bottom and fit nicely in the palm of your hand. If you feel our price is out of line, please make an offer. Six (6) Roly Poly glasses created in the late 50s/1960s for members of the U. These came from the estate of an ex-Seabee who had been part of TASK FORCE 43, which provided the logistics for Antarctic portion of the “International Geophysical Year 195758″ – a collaborative effort among forty nations to carry out earth science studies from the North Pole to the South Pole and at points in between. Members of the Navy in Operation Deep Freeze were the very first Americans to set foot on the South Pole in 1956. Walt Disney himself designed the logo used on these glasses. Condition is Pristine – no chips to the rims, no wear to the artwork. No cloudiness or scratches to the glass. These were stored under the previous owner’s bar and look to have been seldom, if ever, used. If this is an issue please contact me – I’m willing to work with you. Track Page Views With.
