Blue Venetian Decanter and Glasses (5)


Memories of Venice! This is a stunning, vintage, Venetian, cobalt blue glass decanter and stopper with five matching shot/liqueur glasses. There is beautiful silver overlay detail and Venetian scenes on each item in the set. The decanter has the winged lion, symbol of Venice, with its front paw resting on an open book. The opposite side features a gorgeous building - St. Mark's Square? The glasses are decorated with flowers and building scenes - you can see the different images in the photos. The silver overlay is gorgeous with lovely, intricate designs, including the stopper.

These decanter sets were often created as souvenir pieces on Murano, an island close to Venice, famous for its high-quality glassware. There are varying dates attributed to these sets, some as early as the 1920s. We are unsure of the date of this particular set.

As you would expect from a vintage, mid century, or earlier, set, the silver overlay does show slight signs of wear. However, we don't feel this in any way diminishes its beauty and style, rather it adds to its history and character. There are no chips or cracks in the glass. A truly gorgeous set.
