$20 for a set of 4.
Cash and Carry. New in the box. Never been used.
Great for the Holiday Table.

These are a two piece set from the Avon ruby red 1876 Cape Cod Collections with their original boxes.

This collection is absolutely gorgeous and in pristine new condition! There are no chips or cracks.
These beautiful Items are reminiscent of early American pressed glass called "Sandwich Glass". It featured lacy, intricate designs, fine background stippling and exquisite brilliance, which reflected the superb craftsmanship of its makers.

Many of the detailed designs of this prized glass were produced by the Boston & Sandwich Glass Works, founded on Cape Cod in 1825. Other companies in the region competed, but the popularity of "Sandwich" pieces resulted in the name becoming a generic term for pressed glass.

Inspired by the lace delicacy of these designs, particularly the classic "Roman Rosette" pattern, Avon has created this unique collection. Not only does it recall the beauty of this quality glass, but its name commemorates both the spirit of the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial, which celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and the area where Sandwich glass originated.

These pieces will make a beautiful addition to the popular Cape Cod Collection. They can be used on your dinner table or displayed in a china cabinet for an Early American accent.

I am also listing many other matching pieces, if you would like to complete your table setting or to add to your collection.

They would be a beautiful addition to any table, your collection, a Wedding or Bridal Shower, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween Party, Holidays or any other special occasion.
