French Six Pieces Opaline Service Called "Verre d'eau"
Service "verre d'eau" is the official name for this French tradition for most of the 19th century to have a set laid out for women in their bedroom on a commode marble or on the nightstand. It has to be compose in the same material and decor-of a tray, a large water carafe, a smaller orange-flower water (known for its sedative properties) carafe, a sugar bowl and one or two glasses.
This superb service is made of white opaline crystal glass and all pieces have been mouth blown or handmade (tray, stems and stoppers.) The pontil traces (under the pieces) have been ground and polished, sign of quality glass work. Each piece is ornated by gold filets
