Volpe Tumblers

Byline: Mark E. Chase

I am attempting to develop a list of the plastic insulated tumblers that were done by Nicholas Volpe in the mid-late 1960's. These tumblers were premiums given away by gas stations. Any additions (or corrections since it is difficult to read the signatures) you can make to the list are appreciated.
