    This decanter I received as a present from Carlos last Christmas (Do you remember this post? In factwe bought it together in what was one of the best stores for glassware and pottery in the Madrid of the 1950s.

    A month or so later I went back in search of any matching glasses and there they were: 5 sample glasses waiting for me at the ridiculous price of 15 euros for the whole lot. Of course I got them! Unfortunately one of them broke while washing it... the stem is so thin it took a little clumsy movement of my fingers to break it in two.

    I hope I'll find the remaing glasses some time soon, but meanwhileI lovelooking at this incomplete set... so beautiful!

      Thanks Bellin. I don't have much literature about the subject but will try and look for them in my books when I'm home. So far I don't know what they can be, but let's see if the books can tell something :)

      Lovely original decanter design. I have two of these one smokey and one clear. Jealous yours still has the label, I have never seen that before.

      I got it from a shop that had had it in storage from the 1950s... it's normal they keep the original labels :) As for the glases, they have 5 samples of different models... unfortunately I broke one while washing it. Those stems are so incredibly thin!

      Thanks Sean... I even thought I was being careful :'( It was the second smaller size. If you take a look at the second picture you can see there's a "size gap" between the smallest glass and the next bigger one. :(
