These small amethyst glass tumblers don’t belong to the decanter (which presumably is much older), but the colour matched so well that it just made sense to offer them for sale together! Plus I like the combination of the old and new, the ornate and the overly plain – the decanter makes the glasses a bit more interesting, and the glasses show off the detail in the decanter – which I have to say, is really quite beautiful! I think that the decanter is most likely Venetian, although I can’t say for certain – it certainly does look like a lot of other Venetian glass that I’ve seen, but you never know!
Note: Both the glasses and the decanter are in excellent condition, with only very minor signs of wear to the silver
