I like the big bum glasses and I cannot lie.

Hi Lust, it's a deer and camel, can't find anything on the net about these either, they have listed them as art deco in the catalogue

catalogue also has the glasses listed as Bohemian although they arn't that clever at that auction and not particularly great on glass, they have some lovely candlesticks that they have listed as Sowerby when in fact they are Vallerysthal

We have a couple of people would recognise glasses but if in time... probably worth buying if not many bids.

Camel and friend I would agree are 30s to 50s latest. Maybe Scandinavian or Italian...

Generally people do not discuss prices or values on here because values can go up as well as down depending on the demand/fashion of the buying market and the availability or scarcity of an item.  I would say that counts whether you are buying to keep and use/display as a collector, or you are buying to sell on as a seller.
I generally do not buy unless I love something and that seems to be a good enough reason. How much to pay is dependent on how much I desire the object in question.
I think they are great, and had I been there, and not already had a fab set of Christmas use only glasses, I would have bought them to use at Christmas :)

in the first pic or two think I'm seeing a gold coloured knop  -  was that inclusions or painted, and if painted then I'd suggest modern.      But none of this really matters - you're obviously passionately and lustfully in love with them, so you won't sleep at night unless you own them ;)          I'd go for second half C20  - perhaps it's fairies and Bacchus in the vinyard.   
Try frightening the other bidders  -  shove your paddle up high for all to see and simply hold it there - hoping the others wilt quickly.
Of course it might not work, and you could end up spending the gas, electricity, and food bill all on one day ;)
