S&W "Dolce Relievo" Cameo Glass cup and saucer
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:45:56 PM »
Hi everyone,

I have a client with this cup and saucer he would like to sell. I was hoping someone here could point me to a way to evaluate it's worth. It was sold to him in 1981. He was told it is "Dolce Relievo" circa 1880.

It is unsigned and attributed by the seller to S&W.

The cup is 2 3/4" high. The saucer is 4 1/2" in diameter. There are no chips, no cracks and there is no discoloration.

I have more photos if needed.

Thank you for any assistance you can render,

Brenda

Hi and welcome to the board.
I'm afraid I can't help you, but hopefully someone will be along shortly who will have more information :)

I wonder whether Webb is a better bet than Stevens and Williams. They certainly used that pink over custard (uranium glass I suspect) combination

Thank you Christine and Flying free. Christine, that link was very helpful. The two pieces do look very similar.

I know this is an ignorant question but is a demitasse cup and saucer more or less valuable than a vase?

Thank you again,

Brenda

Who knows, but cups and saucers are likely to be scarcer. Value is only what people will pay and that auction is 10 years old. Since then things have become even more available and visible over the Internet and glass prices are currently depressed.

Thanks, Christine.

I know how true that is for nearly all antiques. I did not know if it applied to this particular item. My client paid over $2,200 for this and is expecting to retire on the proceeds…….. ::)

Would you advise taking it to an auction house or selling it on eBay?

I'm not advising on anything... but wishful thinking springs to mind
