These yellow (citron, yellow leaning a little green) cut to clear wine glasses are attributed to St. Louis glass based on the stem, circa 1910.The quality is certainly right, thinner than most of the Bohemian versions and with a lovely crystal tone. The primary cutting appears to be an uncommon variation on a fan and cross-cut pattern, but I would say star rather than fan, and the way the "legs" of the star blend into the rest of the design is marvelous. The stem is also cut, but the biggest feature is the air-trap teardrop in the stem, something that is quite uncommon to rare in the cut to clear goblets. This is simply, and I just have to say it, a cut above almost all the other versions. In case you're wondering, it does not react under black light.
The photo with the book is to compare the glass to a "true" yellow. Height is about 7 1/8.
Condition is excellent with no damage or repairs. But otherwise we're fairly flexible.If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it. If you have any questions, just get in touch. Again, we're open to options if needed.
My joints may not be so flexible anymore, but our service can still bend to suit your needs.... With some limits, of course. It also stands for Ginny and Forrest, and Odditiques is oddities and antiques.
I wanted top billing, but For-Gin didn't seem quite right in the antiques game. Hope you've enjoyed seeing the glasses and maybe got a chuckle, too. No extra charge for chuckles, giggles, or smiles.The photo with Berlioz is one of our logos and shows our specialty, above average, harder to find East and West German pottery. We know a hawk from a handsaw no matter which way the wind is blowing.
