4 Vintage Venetian Glass Master Salt Dishes:  SWANS
$345. ALL

Measurements: BEAK TO TAIL: 4" - BODY DIAMETER: 3" - HEIGHT: 3 1/2" - BASE DIAMETER: 2 1/2" - WEIGHT EACH: 4 oz.

19th century Italian Venetian blown glass "master" salt dishes (larger than individual salt dishes) with the characteristic rough pontil on the base of each.

This listing is for FOUR swans: 2 pale pink, one pale yellow (not photographed), and one a very pale aqua - all with lutz gold flakes. Lovely, graceful, and delicate, but usable as part of an elegant table service.

Condition is quite good considering the age: 1 pink swan has minor roughness on a wing edge; 1 pink swan is perfect as far as I can tell; the yellow swan has a tiny chip flake under one wing; the blue swan has a flake under the tail and roughness at the edge of the "beard.

None of the flaws are visible. The roughness can be felt if one is looking for it.
