One of the prettiest of all sets, this one is by Saint Louis, their signature being that applied ruffle of glass trim down the sides, as well as the general quality of the hand/mouth blown crystal set throughout. The tall slender stopper is the old original, fits perfectly and, like the rest of the set, is remarkably free of damage. This set would have been brought out for aperitif service before and after a meal, when shots of fine liqueurs were served ceremoniously.
Very good for age and type. One tall slender decanter, one tray, 7 cordials. The raised gold enamel work is superb on this set, and I hope our images can show you at least partly how fabulous it is. There are 7 cordials, but one has a small section of the ruffle of glass missing on one side. I've marked it with an "x" so you can review. There is some missing gold enamel on a cordial or two, as well. The decanter, elegant as it is, is free of any damage at all, and the tray has just one minuscule nip that I had to find by fingertip rather than sight. The set is perfect to serve 6 or fewer guests, and keep that one extra cordial as a replacement should you have an accident with another. Isn't the set just gorgeous!
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!
