This is a beautiful electric blue set of LeGras glass, a liqueur service complete with the 2 original decanters and original stoppers, The tray is a bit oversized for these old sets, and the only thing short of perfection is that it's lost all but 4 of its original little shot cups. Always the optimist, I think that means it's perfect to be the set you have to go to Paris and search out replacements for - and you know that's a really fun prospect. The street markets and flea markets have all sorts of these little glass cups, so you might even opt to go mix-match and just pick out the most beautiful singles you can find, make it a very unique set, indeed. And make it your own. I do have a set of 8 of the cups very like these, and in blue, but they are not an exact match. I'll get those photographed and listed, in case someone wants to fill out this blue set with those blue cups. On the other hand, you've probably got one couple of very BFFs that you can consider a full party using this 4-person serving set, don't you? Yes, thought so. ; )
Very good condition for age and type, there are no breaks or chips to disclose. The stoppers are originals and fit perfectly in each of the 2 largish decanters. Cups number only 4, however - would have had 12 in its original state. So that's the flaw. Still, you might enjoy adding to the set as souvenir search items of your own time/tours of Paris. Or an internet search fun spree yet to unfold. The tray is large at 13" long and 9.5" wide, 1" deep. The decanters are 9.5" tall, taller than most of these old French liqueur set decanters. Measurements are noted on our images, too. Price takes into account the missing cups.
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!
