Stunning old early 1800s glass ware, part of a larger service that included a large decanter, a sugar bowl and these pieces. Might have also had a matching under tray, but these are the pieces that remain. I bought this from a dealer in Paris who promised to send it and then did poor packing, and the sugar bowl and large decanter both shattered in transit. So sadly, such things happen. I wish everyone packed with as great a concern for the old treasures as we do. But I digress. This pair of wine cups in the traditional early 1800s form (timbale, wine tumblers) can still thrill the collector or anyone who appreciates the fine crystal of St. Louis, hand applied rocaille and flowers of raised gold enamel that was hand applied, kiln-fired. The opulent ruffles along sides and collar are undamaged, and the stopper remains intact. No chips on rims, no notable loss to gold enamel. The French enamelist's number appears on bottom (6) and stopper is original.

Very good to excellent condition as you see it. No chips, no cracks, no damage to the 3 pieces (and stopper) offered here. Raised gold enamel is kiln-fired and tightly adhered, without any serious loss. Amethyst crystal is a most unique coloration for this old crystal. Really a beautiful set, as it remains.
