This is a really unusual beverage set that you hardly eversee together. The pitcher is catalog # 90036, & the goblets are # 90032, designed by Ruth & William Gerth for Chase.

A description quoted in the Johnson book on Chase products (p.142) says: âeoesuggestive of the wine feasts of Roman days.âe

Pitcher in good condition, has minor scratches, 3 dings on the rim, a chip on the foot along with a scrape in the same area.(see photos) Pitcher is 10 1/4 âeoe high, not marked.

One has a spot ¾âe x ½âe of chrome loss on the foot, a scuff on the body, and 2 almost imperceptible chips on rim. One has a ¼ x ¼âe area of chrome loss on grip area (neck to bowl) and the 4th one is almost perfect. Insides of all pieces are good, some grayish discoloration, nothing bad.
