These charming little glasses were used in France during the 19th century and early 20th to taste cherries in brandy,a very popular beverage at this time.
The glass is in shape of small cup which allows to put the fruit.
These are particularly pretty,made of hand blown and cut glass.
Under the base of each glass you can see the polished mark left when the glass blower rod was broken at manufacturing.
Each glass is unique and it could happen to have very slight differences of size between them,but not really visible.
They are about 2,6’’ high (6,7cm) and the glass diameter is 2,4’’ (6cm)
They are all in good condition and it is rare to find a series of twelve identical old glasses as well preserved.
You can also use them to put a small ball of sorbet, with or without alcohol,to make a ‘’ trou Normand ’’,a French gastronomic custom,to aid digestion and restore the appetite to diners during a long meal !
Most of pictures have been taken outside,that explains the difference of color with the primary image due to reflections in the glass !
