Hard to believe that I have been maintaining this blog for more than 4 years. Back in the day I posted everyday, sometimes more than once. Of course I don’t buy enough ‘new’ old glass to keep up that pace of posting!
Since 2012 I have come across a few more pieces of Sevigne.
The photo below is the liquor cocktail. The top left photo is the white wine, the top right photo is the champagne/tall sherbert and the last photo in this update is, I assume a low sherbert. Pretty pieces all
Despite the photo of the tall sherbert, I think my photos have gotten better over the years. I’ve finally learned how to edit. Took a long while.

This photo does not do justice to this glass. I bought a bunch – 14ish – at an auction in Brighton (Ontario). Normally I don’t buy anything I don’t recognize, but they were being sold cheaply at the end of the day. My research lead me to believe that they are French – Baccarat and that the etch is called Sevigne. I’ve seen various dates for their end of production. But it would appear that the end of the line was late 19th century or early 20th century. I have (am guessing) white wines and champagnes. I never use these as they are way too small. If I’m going to pour wine, it’s likely into a water goblet. Saves time in the refilling. They are very dainty.
