The goblets are approximately 4.3 cm (1 11/16 inches) in height, and the tray is approximately has a center length of approximately 17.4 cm (6 14/16 inches) in length, and an approximate center width of 14.4 cm (5 10.5/16 inches).
Such wonderful Art Nouveau silver sets are extremely rare and would make a splendid Christmas gift or addition to your collection! Please feel free to check out my other Museum Quality Collection! Three of the goblets have some light dents at the bottom end, and since I could not detect any impact marks I conclude that these dents might very well have been casting faults since the tray and goblets were hand made by French artist silversmith. As well as other light signs that appear on silver surfaces of a hundred years (wear).
