1920 Theresienthal hock goblet in general sale ..Never
« on: November 07, 2012, 04:07:29 PM »
I did not believe my luck when l looked at some bookcases in my local auction house general sale.  The very last lot is a Vic cranberry glass bowl and lid with six green goblets price at 40-80.
I was shocked when l discovered the green goblets turn out to be  1920 Theresienthal hock goblets. All different pattern and l know a set of six was sold a few months ago at another auction house for 520. But that day l have to go to a meeting and forntunatly my friend works at the auction house able to bid on my behalf . I never forget myself if l missed it.
Good news l got them for 60.

Sorry the pic not very good.

A bargain no matter if they are really old or reproductions of 1980!
If they are really old ones as they seem to be they are not from the 1920ties but from 1902 or a few years later.
I feel a little bit sorry for the guy who had let them pass for such little money.
But congratulations for your find!
Kind regards

Stephan

Thank for the comments.  I do think they are real MaCcoy .  Everything is right even the height.
