Stunning Glasses (Auction tomorrow)
« on: November 28, 2012, 06:00:49 PM »
spotted these in my local auction today which are being auctioned tomorrow and I would love to have a shot at them.  Has anyone any idea as to origin and age please, they are a very pale green colour with a beautiful design I have never seen before.   There are 9 in total but one has broken off at the stem.  Help please before the auction tomorrow late morning...thank youuuuuuuuuuu

Very nice? Are they all different?

Look to be either etched and engraved OR sandblast and engraved, stems blown too.

sorry Frank, as I wasn't allowed over the counter and had shed loads of other stuff to look at, I only picked out two but I would say the pattern is the same on each from where I was looking. Tempted tempted tempted, but not a clue in how high to go especially when I don't know their origin

fancy these two large glass animals too but can't decide on their age, don't think they are that old unless I am wrong
