The decanter and glasses are clear green with gold inlay. There are flowers and scripting that are raised on the glass. The decanter is 9 1/4 tall without the cap and 4 in around at the widest point. The cap is 3 3/4 long. The glasses match the decanter. They are 3 in tall and 1 3/4 at the mouth. There is a marking on the bottom and it looks like there might be a flaw or a marking on the cap. I bought this at a garage sale maybe 25 years ago and it has been in a box ever since.
Good afternoon, James,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. I can not make out the mark on the decanter's stopper. The mark on the underside does not look like a flaw but part of the hand-making process. Based on the information and photographs provided, and subject to examination, this is:
A Venetian hand-painted blown green glass claret decanter set,
Italian, late 19th/early 20th century
With four matching claret glasses
Decanter: 13 inches overall height
Glasses: 3 inches overall height
Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
