Picked these up a few weeks ago. Actually have four of them. 3 inches in height.

Three footed, seem to be slightly opalescent with what looks like a gargoyles on the side and floral features.

Not sure what they were intended for. I thought eggcups at first then toothpick holders but I really am not sure.

So I would love to know what they were for and who made them.

Thanks in advance.

I cannot clearly make out the detail in the pics, but wonder if its not a goat's head? If it is I know PV made a goat's head design & Ivo posted info regarding a goat's head design by St. Louis in the 1870s awhile back so if it is a goat's head design you might try these possibilities. Ken

And a goats head design of a goblet from Saint-Louis was copied much more recently by a Portuguese company.  I have one in blue.  But I wasn't sure your glass was the same?
I'll try and find a link on here for you to compare.

Actually it was IVIMA who made my goblet and PK did an article on it.
But I thought the glass on mine was different to yours so didn't really draw a comparison.  But maybe it's an avenue to explore?

Hi, thanks it is definitely not a goats head. Hard to get a picture that capures the detail as it is not that well defined in the firat place.

Either a goblin or a gargoyle. The ears give that away.

Thanks for the pointers though I will do some more digging.
