gilded clear blown glass bottles. Each pair with
differing gilded patterns and all with original scalloped
disc stoppers. A pair of facetted and gilded tumblers and
three smaller gilded tumblers. The ccntre lift up tray
containing twelve (12) liquer glasses.
Absolutely wonderful condition and probably unused.
