Decorative Objects

Service "verre d'eau" is the official name for this French tradition for most of the 19th century to have a set laid out for women in their bedroom on a commode marble or on the nightstand. It has to be compose in the same material and decor-of a tray, a large water carafe, a smaller orange-flower water (known for its sedative properties) carafe, a sugar bowl and one or two glasses.
This superb service is made of white opaline crystal glass and all pieces have been mouth blown or handmade (tray, stems and stoppers.) The pontil traces (under the pieces) have been ground and polished, sign of quality glass work. Each piece is ornated by gold filets and gold leaves in a decor of blue, white and red enamel dots figuring stylized flowers.
Stems of both glasses show traces of signatures and marks now illegible.
The dimensions are tray diam. 11", large carafe H 11", small one H6", glasse H 5" and sugar bowl H 6".
Rare to find such a service with all original pieces and none having a chip or a crack.
