Another Exceptional Cut & Engraved Masterpiece From Seneca Glass

           The magnificent Sanssouci pattern, Goblet 8.25" (21cm) Stem #4816

                                                       Another view

                                   Sanssouci Champagne 6.875" (17.5cm)

The Sanssouci pattern is very fine engraving and precise mitre cutting. Circa 1930, it has, as many of Seneca's top patterns do, cutting to the edges of both base and lip rims. The engraving has been polished by hand in parts and left unpolished or "gray" in others. In over 20 years collecting glass, these are the only examples I've ever seen.
