Description

Set of 4 shot glass size glasses and a decanter made of a thick purple glass. They are on a black oval platter that has a recess so they rest securely. All items 'lean' or curve and have I think six surfaces. The lid of the decanter has 3 arcs and is chipped at the end. It is dusty, but I do not see any other chips.

Provenance

My grandmother purchased it while living in Greece. We have had it in the house for a few decaded because it is pretty:) I have NO idea what decade she bought it though!

$125 - $250 (United States Dollar)

Dear Katina,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. So that I may best assist you, are there any labels or signatures on the bottom of these pieces. If there are any please attach some detailed photos of them.

With kind regards,
Georg

There are 6 not 4 glasses. I do not see any kind of markings anywhere not on the glasses or the decanter or the bottom of the plate

Dear Katina,

Thank you for the additional information and your patience. The presented object is a liqueur set consisting out of a bottle, a tray and four glasses. The bottle and the glasses have an angled and cambered shape which reminds of the Art Deco style. Such sets were produced as liqueur sets and usually, six glasses belong to such a set. This set could be produced in the middle of the 20th century in France or Italy. Sadly we don't see a label or producer mark to localize or identify the maker exactly.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 125 to 250 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With best regards,
Georg
