From the late 19th century, this exceptional set of 6 champagne coupes in white glass with gilding in good condition. No cracks or chips. Very light wear of gilding from regular use. These Champagne coupes are listed, plate 16, in the first part (Venetian-style items) of the catalogue of the Maison Legras and Co. of 1899. The director of these establishments was the master glassmaker François Theodore Legras (1839-1916). They are part of the service "Pierrefonds" with a gold decoration with polecat brush. This model was also available in pink glass with or without gilding. Each glass is unique because it is blown and painted by hand. Ribbed bowl, pedestal leg, and smooth round foot with gilding. All the pictures complete this description. Very careful shipping with track & trace via Mondial Relay when possible.
