Hi Robert

Given the value of these objects you should possibly consider to take them to an auction house
rather than sell them online yourself IMHO.  :)

Actually I'd tend to disagree with Dirk in this case. The main market for these is in the US, hence, if I were selling them I'd list them on Ebay and make sure I ticked the box for US site visibility. Also the auction houses in this part of the world aren't great when it comes to glass in my opinion. It might be a riskier option, but you should ultimately get a better price and the selling costs are much lower.

As always you'll need a good title and description and plenty of clear photos. You'll also need to pack them very carefully for international shipping...
