    Christina 7 Piece Water Set.
    Condition 9.5/10.
    Beautifully thick and heavy, clear & green coloured, hand blown Vaseline Uranium glass, an alluring Art Nouveau/Deco themed design, with gold gilt & frosted glass detailing.

    I'm unfortunately unable to find any helpful information on the Christina glass brand.
    While researching I came across a Christina Glass Sweden, also Christina glass Japan and Italy. Futhermore, I can't find another dupe for this item listed anywhere, nothing that resembles it's design at all. Therefore I am unable to pin point the exact orign and dating of this set. ):

    The previous owner stated that they had owned this set for approximately 15 years. When they bought it at an Australian auction house, this beauty apparently set themselves back 750- Aud on their purchase over a decade ago. We both came to the conclusion that we think it is certainly old, I feel as though antique. As a rough estimate id say it may have been made about c.1920. I say this based on its design, but mainly due to the pontil scar on the base, inwhich- was clearly blown using an iron rod. This set is my absolute favorite that'll be with myself until the end if I can help it. Please if you have any info about this item, dont hesitate to contact!

      Hey Inky, thank you for your effort + information! :)

      Even after digesting the info, I'm still not sure
      1950 is totally accurate, although the probability is very likely.

      Link 1/ They are very similar, the only differences I see is how the glass has been shaped & its thickness, plus the pontil polished mark.
      Link 2/ The pontil is also polished. The pontil scar on my decanter looks like a small round crater that I can fit the tip of my pinky finger into. Lastly, if my eyes aren't playing tricks on me, the label seems a little different.
      The Christina label on that listing has a slightly different font, for example note the letters 'TNA', some appear longer/shorter thinner/bolder. Also while the silver colour on both labels are the same, the space around the word 'Christina' is not. On my decanter there is little to no room within the area, as the word almost meets the outline of the frame/box.
      Possibly indicating it could be made at another time than these two, but I'm not sure.
    3. inky inky, 2 months ago’s my pleasure, I enjoy learning new stuff..I think your set is most likely to to English, and 1920/50.. it looks more English than Italian or Japanese to me and I also! found Christina glass .. Japanese and what they are saying ‘Swedish’ but I suspect it Japanese coz! the shape was exactly the same missing the silver top bit..very different to your label it, as for your label being different to the one I showed you a lot is is very similar, it’s hard to tell the difference of the fonts as the label on both aren’t in good condition, giving this what I can see it looks the same to me..yes! one is closer at the end but that could be just mistake in the making, it doesn’t look right…just my thoughts ..:-/
