This decanter is a little over 11" with stopper.  It has small cups.  It is amethyst frosted and cut.  Any idea on maker?

Hi, it reminds me of this... http://www.glaskilian.de/Art-Deco-Likoer-Karaffe-STEFAN.123+B6YmFja1BJRD0xMjMmcHJvZHVjdElEPTIxNzUxJnBpZF9wcm9kdWN0PTEyMyZkZXRhaWw9.0.html

The glasses seem to be similar.

I really don't know who Stefani is, it could be an importer, but i gather from the label that it's German?

Definitely Czech! The decanter is shown as no. 683 in the 1978 Weil catalogue available here: http://glas-musterbuch.de/Weil-1978.232+B6YmFja1BJRD0yMzImcHJvZHVjdElEPTk2NjAmcGlkX3Byb2R1Y3Q9MjMyJmRldGFpbD0_.0.html

It will most likely have originally been a Hoffmann or Schlevogt design from the thirties. Many of these continued in production for decades. It wouldn't surprise me if Desna or Schubert are still making this pattern...

Czech, yeah, i see now.  :-[


The one in the link i gave is Czech too i think. I was confused by the word 'Sudetendeutsche'.

From Wiki
Quote
Sudetenland (Czech and Slovak: Sudety, Polish: Kraj Sudetów) is the German name used in English in the first half of the 20th century for the northern, southwest and western regions of Czechoslovakia inhabited mostly by ethnic Germans, specifically the border areas of Bohemia, Moravia, and those parts of Silesia located within Czechoslovakia.
The name is derived from the Sudetes mountains, though the Sudetenland extended beyond these mountains which run along the border to Silesia and contemporary Poland. The German inhabitants were called Sudeten Germans (German: Sudetendeutsche, Czech: Sudetští Němci, Polish: Niemcy Sudeccy).
