A wonderful liqueur service you'll enjoy bringing out for guests. There are 2 decanters and 7 liqueur cups (service for 6 with a spare, just in case), from the Napoleon III era (late Victorian, c.1850-79 approximately). Would have originally been 12 of the little cups, but they're a bit delicate and some get lost through time. You can sometimes find matching ones in the small Paris street markets, in case you want to have a fun project for your next trip. Traditional French: serving aperitif ahead of an evening's meal with guests. And also often used for a liqueur at the end of the evening. You'll enjoy it with flavored liqueurs and the jigger cups when serving coffee after a meal, too. And displays beautifully in between - that fabulous blue!
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Original stoppers, but one does have a hairline crack you can see in the stem - check our photos. The 6 cups that remain with the set are in fine order, and the swirl electric blue of the set does wonderful things with light. Clear swirled glass handles on decanters and cups, too. You'll want to present on a mirrored tray if you have one. Measurements are noted directly on our photos.
