Someone on eBay's PGP Board sent me here. I'll be very grateful to learn all I can about these. //
The person who gave them to me is a good friend who retired about ten years ago. She inherited them from her grandmother-in-law, who was a collector residing in Louisville. She tells me they are finger bowls. // My understanding is that they are Venetian glass aventurine. And we suspect they are by Salviati. (I sold a huge set of custom-made Salviati red glass dinnerware a few years ago.) They date, I'm told, to late 19th century.

Mod: Links tidied up for clarity:

Here is what is probably the least pretty of them.

Oh, dear. It seems that my method of posting photos on the eBay boards doesn't work here. I need help, please.

Definitely -- late 19th & early 20th Century. This set is well documented in several sources.

Bless your hearts! You must have gone to the PGP Board to have a look. Thank you so much.

Now, just returned home (hours later). Let's see if I understood correctly how to show pix here.

Hi northernridge.

I see you have found out how to embed images in the mesasage. That's great. HTML code is disabled on this Board, but the code will still show as text and links with "http://" at the start will still work, although they are within the code. With my Moderator hat on, I have tideid up your original links for clarity.

Thank you, KevH. I'm going to show one more, one of the prettiest. I just want to be absolutely certain that these were indeed made by Salviati. And if someone can narrow that date down (late 19th vs. early 20th) as well, that would be really great.

Oh, that is great. I'm pretty sure I have two of them.

And definitely Salviati, right?
