"For Memory" is theEnglish translation, and these would have been celebratory souvenir wine goblets, 19th century, which might have been for the bride and groom's wedding toast, or were made for each guest as a takeaway souvenir of celebration of a christening, wedding, anniversary. They're the traditional 19th century size for wine, smaller than the ones we use now, and they're each in very fine condition. Hand enameled in thick impasto enamels that are then fired onto the glass to withstand washing and time, they remind me of an Alpine meadow. I look at these and think of the Swiss region, Appenzell, from whence my Grandmother immigrated with her family when she was a baby, and think the age of these is right to have been a souvenir of her parent's wedding day, possibly in a meadow, and there in that most beautiful region of Swiss Alps. They came to us as a pair, and we put them forward as a pair. One is slightly larger at 5.5" tall, and they are mouth blown artisan works of glass art.

Very good to excellent for age and type, without any chips, no nips, hairlines, cracks, and the enameling is in lovely condition, too. One is 5.5" tall, the other is 5.25" tall. Each made by hand and mouth-blown heavy glass.

Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
