1970s plastic cup and jug set

This set pictured above is a fantastic example of the plastic cup and jug sets that were popular in the 1970s. My parents still have a set with a brown wallpaper-type pattern. I couldn’t resist buying this ‘spirit-themed’ set last week as it brought back some fond childhood memories of drinking milk (not booze) from similar glasses and wondering how the pattern piece got into the cup and how amazing it was that it didn’t get wet!

I’m unsure of the value of this retro cups and jug set, but 6 cups, pictured below, from the same era have sold for more than $50 on Trademe.
