This pair of goblets are Bohemian from the late 19th century. I was told that they are wedding goblets. One is slightly larger than the other. One measures 13 ½ inches high and has a diameter of 5 ½ inches. The other is 13 ¼ inches high and 5 ½ inches in diameter. Each glass has a bubble and a teardrop blown into the stem. There is wing-like ornamentation applied to the center of the stem. The glass is decorated with heavy, embossed gilding which is enameled with turquoise jewels. These were incredibly complicated to make, having to be blown in segments and then joined together. The pair are a wonderful example of 19th century craftsmanship in the European tradition. Both are in excellent condition.
