What's for sale?
This is a charming glass liqueur set, comprising an unusually-shaped decanter and five matching aperitif or liqueur glasses.
The shape of the decanter and glasses are an inverted style with clean lines, typical of the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s. The decanter also has a stopper with a flat top and wide brim. We haven't identified the maker and we think they could have been made anytime during the 1930s, 1940s or 1950s.
They've all been hand-painted with green and white stripes and bands. The decanter also has painted, concentric circles on its shoulders and on the top of the stopper.
They appear to be hand blown: there's a slight variation in the size of the glasses and they all have polished-out pontil marks.
Capacity of the glasses is a little over a double shot at 100ml.
