It's simple: I love vintage collectible glass! From antique art glass to depression and vintage glass collectibles, I offer the glass collector an array of glassware - decorative bowls, figurines, paperweights, stemware, and vases - from various points around the world. With a colorful selection that goes far beyond clear - cranberry, red, blue, green, pink and butterscotch orange, you'll even find some white milk glass and a bit of marbled slag too. Most of the glass available here at Flashback Alley was made in the U.S.A., with a nice Italian and Czech selection and others possibly from Europe.

A gorgeous crystal art glass cordial liquor decanter with rich red enameled grape vines, all hand-painted and trimmed in gold around the decanter's teardrop belly. The short tapered foot, spout rim, bubble stopper, and handle all have a gilt trim, with both ends of the applied handle adorned by a trefoil leaf.
