For sale

Decanter 10”h Glasses 3-1/4”h Tray 8-3/4” diameter, Lip of tray approx 1” high Glass is colored peach with a purple base on the glasses and top of decanter. The color has a luminosity to it and the pattern is hand painted. Appears to be hand blown, though I’m uncertain.


My great grandmother had it since my grandmother was very little. My grandmother said she always remembered it being in the house. (grandmother born 1919) so I imagine my great grandmother acquired it anytime before or around that time.

Hi Kirby,

Thanks for confirming the number of glasses and the condition of the one glass, and yes, they are hand-blown and hand-painted.
These are lovely and most decanter sets that have come up for auction recently do not include a tray, which makes yours particularly nice....unfortunately, they simply are not bringing very much money. As an example, this set included 12 glasses, TWO decanters and a tray and only brought $250.

Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, you have:

An antique Bohemian hand-painted amber and amethyst glass decanter set
European, late 19th/early 20th Century
Comprising: baluster-form decanter with amethyst stopper, 6 cordial glasses and a circular tray with raised lip.
Decanter 10 inches high; glasses 3 1/4 inches high; tray 8 3/4 inches diameter
CONDITION: one glass with significant break and loss to one foot
PROVENANCE: owned by client's great-grandmother
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price (such as seen on RubyLane, Etsy, eBay or 1stDibs) may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
