    I've had these Cobalt Blues for about 40 years. Hand me downs from my Great Aunt. I have no idea who the maker is or how long she had them before she gave them to me.

    The tallest one is about 25" with the top and about 6" straight across the bottom. I don't know if the bottom qualifies as a pontil mark or not and there are no makers mark or numbers anywhere. This one has no "seams" that I can tell.

    The shorter one is about 13.5" tall and 3" across the bottom. This one has quite a few air bubbles within it and it does have "seams", strange to me because it apparently was made 2/3rds and 1/3rd (that's what the seams show). Looking at the seams now, it's almost as if it wasn't too carefully done, but maybe that's my "lack of glass knowledge" opinion. (Funny because I actually do have a lot of glassware) It could be a good job, just very old, I don't know.

    If other photos are needed, I can certainly do that.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks

      These are Italian. Both are hand-blown into molds. This deep blue is a bit rarer but the shapes are common for late 50s early 60s especially the taller of the two decanters. The tallest one is also missing it's plastic ring that fits on the stopper base. Not a big deal though as they tended to crack easily and fall off.

      Thank you deedee. I've had these for so long now and it may be time they find another home, maybe...I'm wondering if they bring a decent price. My daughters decor is quite different and these just don't fit there and I just want to revamp everything (I think anyway) It actually would be quite hard to move these out.

      Thank though for your information. I really appreciate it. You have some beautiful pieces yourself. Love the orange!
