Obtained these via an auction in a box lot. I didn't even know they were included nor did I have any idea what they were. After speaking with some experts in the UK they told me they were most likely made in HAIDA circa 1910 and probably by one of the glass schools either Weiner Werkstatte or Glasfachschule?
I looked in my one and only art glass book and there are examples from HAIDA and the two schools that are almost the same but none the same shape. The value according to that book runs anywhere from $500 up to $20,000 depending on who painted and made them. I'm still working on finding more information out but so far no luck.
These also have a "Pauly & C" label attached which is in Murano and one of the oldest glass makers in Murano. From what I've been told back in the early 1900's they retailed glass before starting to make their own. Anyone from Archimede Seguso to Powolny sold glass there so it's been very hard to figure anything out about this set.
