And this is my other "Easter' egg (pic. 1) . It is not a decanter, but a 9" whole "boudoir' or ladies' liqueur set, prominently marked right in the front of the tray (pic. 2). The set consists of one tiny decanter and 6 even tinier shot glasses, some of which may carry the paper labels. (pic.3) In this set, the bottle and the two shot glasses on either side of it in pic. 4 still have them.
There are innumerable variations in the decoration of these eggs, as you can see on E-Bay and the invaluable " Czechoslovakian Collectibles" books. It also helps to know they were sold through the Butler Brothers Catalogs. An optimally desirable set is complete, with its decor in good condition, all shot glasses the same size.
You might also look for barrel decanter sets, but that is another posting . . .
