    these items were bought at a garage sale about 3 years ago. I was told they were serving dishes for dried fruit. the colors and the shape are incredible butterfly shape. the glass is etched and beaded on the edges. the smaller ones are 12" max width while the bigger one is 18". the gentleman I bought them from told me to look up armeitalian but have had no success. he is also told me they were in his family for years. they are truly incredible and hoping someone can help figure where they came from and approximate age.

      you're very welcome : ) was also able to find this design piece in the J. Schreiber & Nephews 1915 catalog on page 40, but the number is obscured by a watermark: it's a pdf file if you care to take a look:
