This purple blown glass chandelier is approximately 12-1/2" high, not including the chain at the top or the ceiling cap, which is 5-1/4" in diameter. For the sake of safety a new socket has been inserted, and the wiring is new. When installed the glass top for the chandelier must be secured to the bottom with wires in the loops on both the top and bottom. When a bulb is placed inside the glass, the purple color of the glass becomes lighter and casts a soft light. The glass appears to be blown into a mold, probably Bohemian glass. The decorative wiring applied to the glass emphasizes the subtle quilting pattern in the glass. The condition is excellent, it dates to about the 1920-'30's. This chandelier would make a beautiful accent piece in a foyer, bathroom, etc.

This is a set of six Bohemian wine glasses on stems. They are 6-1/2" high, 2-7/8" in diameter across the top. The stem is hexagonal, tapered from top to narrower at bottom. The stem and the foot are clear. The bowl at top is slightly nipped in and flared out at the top and is a beautiful medium green cut to clear to emphasize the grapes, leaves and tendrils. There are no marks on the glasses, but the quality is very fine, and the glass rings at a high pitch. Each glass weighs 8.7 ounces, a substantial but not overly heavy weight. There is a total of 7 glasses, essentially a set of 6 with an extra glass. They are Bohemian, date to about 1900, and the condition is excellent. There are almost no scratches on the bottoms, which indicates that the glasses were used very little.
