Exquisite vintage Italian Murano glass gilt and enameled glass decanter with six matching cordial glasses, in excellent virtually unused condition, several of pieces still have the original paper labels attached.
The decanter measures 11" tall the matching glasses measure 2 1/2" tall. The glass is a slightly smokey amber in hue, it is extensively decorated with lots of very heavy gold overlay, and beautiful hand applied impasto enameled floral decoration. The decanter has the original stopper, which is of hollow blown glass, and also has heavy gilding.
The set dates to around the 1960's, is looks as though it has been in a cabinet for most of that time, all the pieces are in very good estate order. The decanter has slight discoloration to the interior base, this would probably come out with a wash, I tend to resist washing the interior of decanters as the humidity here in SC makes them a nightmare to get fully dry..........
This is a beautiful set of desirable Murano glass, lovely for parties, to leave out on a tray, or display in a cabinet.
