What size, please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The first set is "7 ½ x 3 ¾"

 

The second set is "6 1/3 x 3 5/16"

 

Same design for both sets, just one's smaller than the other.

 

There is also a crystal etched pitcher, but the design looks a bit different. I'm not sure if it's part of the stemware set or not, but if it is, maybe it'll help in the search. It measures 10" tall and is 7" wide at the widest part of the pitcher and 4 1/2" at its most narrow point, at the spout.

Thank you most kindly for the images. Unfortunately the patterns on both are so universal it is difficult to ascertain the exact maker, sorry. The baluster style of the wine glasses is very much akin to fine Austrian crystal from the mid to late 19th century, but the style carried over well into the 1930s by other makers worldwide. They are free blown forms but the style of panel motifs indicates a bit of high speed machine work which more closely follows forms from 1890 onwards....I do note a few tiny edge nicks, but they can be polished out easily by most jewelry and fine china shops, if wanted.

Based upon a review of information you provided and published completed sales data for similar items, the current fair market value is estimated to range from $12 to $22 each on the private seller market based on overall condition and regional market demand. In an upscale shop, you would normally expect to see prices 25-35% higher in most regions.

Potential sales venues you could consider include listings on eBay.com, etsy.com and Rubylane.com or even placing a free local ad on Craigslist.org, for example, under collectibles. Larger or more expensive items can generally be placed on consignment in many collector and antique shops and galleries as well as in multi-vendor shops. You can also consider placement in a regional auction house or addition to a local estate auction as add-ons, which most will generally accept. You should be aware that most retail dealers will only pay 35-45% of actual estimated value since the items have to have a strong margin for resale and profit, especially in a weak economy such as the world is now in.
