Here is a an extremely rare set of Baccarat Hollow Stem Goblets/glasses that was first offered in 1828 and discontinued in1868. This pattern is very similar to Baccarat Pattern code BAC139. Each goblet/glass has a cranberry/ruby cut to clear bowl with six panels of hand painted gold shells and scrolls.
They are one of the finest quality sets of antique wine goblets/glasses I have seen. When tapped, the ring is magical. The bottom of each goblet has a clear 32 point star cut into the rich cranberry / ruby crystal. These goblets have a unique feature. Each goblet/glass has an unusual hollow stem so the liquid pours not only into the cup but down into the stem as well, as you can see in the photograph.
Add this feature to their beautiful cut, the gorgeous ruby/cranberry overlay and the bountiful gold gilding and you have a truly magnificent set. This set is in excellent condition for its age.
There is some minor wear to the gilding on a few glasses, but there are no chips, no cracks, no breaks and no repairs. Each goblet measures 4 inches in diameter and 5 inches in height.Weight: Each goblet weighs 1 pound. Glass making technique: Hand Blown and Hand Cut and Hand Painted. Type of Glass: Cut to Clear.
Year made: Discontinued early 1900's. Additional photos can be provided on request. The beauty and rarity of this amazing Baccarat set will make its purchaser very happy with the investment. This is an investment you can have and hold and enjoy and it will only appreciate in value over time.
These goblets will be fully insured and signature will be required on receipt. Your questions are always welcome and will be answered promptly.Thank you for viewing my item.
