ANTIQUE HAND BLOWN ART GLASS

TORTOISESHELL PITCHER & 8 TUMBLERS

WELCOME! Offered is a gorgeous vintage art glass pitcher and glasses set! These are being sold for my neighbors who obtained them from an antique dealer in Europe during the 1950s! They are not marked but a very beautiful tortoiseshell pattern blown glass set! All pieces are in excellent condition without chips or flakes or cracks! The pitcher is 7 1/4 inches tall and 8 inches wide! The tumblers are 5 1/4 inches tall! Each piece has a pontil mark on the bottom! Tortoiseshell glass obtained its name from the looks of the glass which is made with two layers of glass with light and darker brown glass spots trapped between the layers thus creating what looks much like a tortoise' shell! The process was perfected in the late 1800s and registered in England by Francis Pohl and S A Wittman! It was then made in England and Germany from about 1880 until 1900 and was also made by the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company in the USA during the same time period! It is generally agreed by experts that it is nearly impossible to determine the specific maker of tortoiseshell glass unless some remains of a label exist as the shapes and patterns were either not well documented or were virtually identical to one another! We are pleased to start this set low and will allow you to decide the value! No Reserve!
