19th century pair of French Baccarat crystal glass carafes. These superb, hand-blown carafes formed part of the “Ribbed Venetian” range, and were sold as water carafes. They’re pear-shaped, and take on a beautiful, slightly irregular form, with one carafe being marginally taller than the other. The stoppers are not interchangeable. The raised bases are applied, and there is a polished pontil on each. Condition is excellent, clean and usable. No chips.
Size: 12” and 12 ½” in height to tip of stopper.
