Testimonials

“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

“ The book arrived promptly and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. The outer cardboard packaging was stout and prevented any damage in transit. I am very pleased with my purchase which is to be a present for my Aunt. She will be absolutely delighted with the book and I have no hesitation in recommending this seller. A very positive experience.”

Item No: A1727
About this item:

Height: 4 1/8 inches (10.4cm).
Style: Venetian Panelled Glass.
Date: c1850. 

A beautiful and unusual Venetian panelled glass beaker with hand-gilt, scrolling decoration, gilt rim and 6 deep amethyst ‘cabochons’.

The panelled glass decorative technique involves layering the coloured glass over the blown clear glass, before cutting away the coloured glass to form bevels (or cabochons) and polishing the clear glass surface. The pieces are then finished, by hand, in gilt decoration; a demanding, time-consuming and costly process with exquisite results.
