I have a set...

I have a set of crystal wine glasses that belonged to my grandmother. I can't find any markings on the the glass anywhere. The glasses appear to be well made, crystal with opaque/frosted animals on the stems. Each different type of glass has a different animal. My grandmother came from a well-to-do family and had expensive taste, I don't know if she purchased these or they were a gift.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I don't believe so.

Hi,

Thank you for the image and for your patience.

These were likely produced in the 1930s in France by a firm called Bayel. They are known for frosted figural stems on their glass stemware.

Each glass could sell for up to $30 per piece on today's market.
