KENTUCKY DERBY Unofficial Bar Glass | Green Frosted Big D | 93rd Running 1967
Kentucky Derby "bar glasses" have been issued from many sources, often as promotional souvenirs and giveaways for bars, restaurants and stores.
Listing is for a Kentucky Derby Bar Glass from the 93rd Running of the Derby in 1967. The green on frosted glass design features a racing jockey in front of the Churchill Downs Twin Spires and uses a modern font and an oversized D in the word, Derby. The winners through 1967 listed on the back. Manufacturers used the same design for Derby bar glasses in subsequent years during the early 1970s with slight changes.
Occasionally, sellers mistakenly mark bar glasses as official Derby glasses because similar to an official glass, the designs often include the infamous Twin Spires and a list previous race winners. Adding to the confusion is that sometimes the bar glass design is a "look-a-alike" from a previous year official glass.
We have more than one-hundred Official Kentucky Derby glasses in stock dating to the 1940s. Browse our Kentucky Derby Mint Julep Glass Collection for other years.
We do not recommend washing collectible glassware in the dishwasher. All glasses sold without chips or cracks.
