THESE GLASSES WERE PURCHASED BY MY MOTHER IN VENICE IN ABOUT 1959. ALAS ONLY 3 REMAIN FROM A SET OF 6. THEY MUST BE QUITE SPECIAL AS, IN RESEARCHING ON THE INTERNET, I CAN'T FIND ANY OTHERS THAT RESEMBLE THEM. EACH ONE IS UNIQUE AND HAS IMPERFECTIONS AND FLAWS YOU WOULD TYPICALLY FIND IN HAND BLOWN GLASS. BUT THERE ARE NO CHIPS, CRACKS OR REPAIRS. THE PHOTOS DON'T DO JUSTICE TO THE RICH HUES OF EMERALD, COBALT, AND RUBY RED VERTICAL STRIPES. EACH GLASS MEASURES ABOUT 3 1/2" TALL, 2 1/4" ACROSS BOTTOM, AND 3 3/4" ACROSS THE RIM, WHICH HAS A SUBTLE SCALLOPED EDGE. VERY DELICATE, EACH WEIGHS ONLY ABOUT 3.5 OZ.
ALTHOUGH I AM NO EXPERT, I HAVE TRIED TO GIVE THE BEST DESCRIPTION I CAN. PLEASE CHECK PHOTOS CAREFULLY AND ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. NO RETURNS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNLESS YOU FEEL I HAVE MISREPRESENTED THE CONDITION OF THE ITEMS DESCRIBED. I WILL PACK THEM WITH CARE AND INCLUDE INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR ANY DAMAGE WHICH MIGHT OCCUR IN SHIPPING.
THANK YOU FOR LOOKING!
