Newbie with an inherited glass collection needs id assistance
« on: November 13, 2012, 12:59:19 PM »
Hi All,

My father in law died recently and has left us his small glassware collection. Some we like and want to keep, some we'll probably sell on but we have no clue what the pieces are or what they might be worth.

I will add pics as I unwrap the items but they are currently stored in a cardboard box in my garage which isn't ideal!!

Any help would be gratefully received! All of the small items are undamaged and in pairs as far as I can tell.

Si ???

Please make sure you post no more than one item per query as it becomes impossible to file for posterity otherwise. Number one is Chinese, number 2 from Aseda Sweden but fairly mass produced. Number three is Chinese again and the last one is from Empoli, Italy. None of these are considered very collectible.

Well that's me told. Thanks for your help  :-[

I'll keep it down to a minimum in future
