8 White Wine Glasses from Baccarat Crystal..  The bowl pattern is identifiable as the Artois design but this was not introduced until 1952.  These pieces are pre-signing (1936) and are somewhat older, possibly Belle Epoque but most likely 1920s. What seems likely is that this was the original pattern and Baccarat repurposed the design in 1952 with a much-changed stem and called them Artois..  The “Stacked Mitre” pattern is very similar to the famous Juvisy (the Presidential suite that is in the Elysee Palace and Versaille) which was introduced in 1890.  What we have as a result is a beautiful and elegant Wine Glass.  Despite the considerable age the glasses are in virtually unused condition.  Somewhat rare.
