...........................................................................

Though unsigned, this smokers companion set is French, as is moulded on the base of each component piece and i sincerely consider these items to be those produced by Sabino, which is not a false claim.

The beautiful qualities of opalescent glass, instantly captivates and draws the eye with its milky-blues & creamy-golden-amber colours which constantly change through movement. This beautiful set is of the same "waxy" opalescent glass to that of Sabino, as is evident when making close comparison. The ashtray and its cigarette holder are both heavy for their size, due to the costly additions of colouring agents used to produce this amazing glass type. Varying amounts of Lead oxide; Phosphorus pentoxide; White arsenic and Quicklime, together with many other ingredients make the glass weighty whilst achieving its phenomenal appearance.

Both of these items have been moulded with crisply defined floral arrangements to both sides of each piece, whilst their interiors & bases are smoothly polished. It is an exquisite companion set and its small size allows for numerous display possibilities.

There is an interior crack as shown in the photographs and is to the corner of the ashtray only. It is stable and does not interfere with the over all pattern or the beauty of this set. The visual qualities of the opalescent glass makes the crack difficult to locate, but is mentioned for accuracy and has been reflected in the price.

This is a scarce set pattern of French, Art Deco opalescent glass and is a remarkable survivor in any condition. Most having been separated and sold off as single items, if or when they seldom appear and open for offer...

...To find both components (at the price as are here for your collection) is certainly a bonus, to any admirer of quality opalescent glass.
