The Tall and the Short !

Issue #85 - May 1980

3106 cut cordial The three little items we are sharing with you this month were purchased during the past three or four years. We found them at a garage sale (one of the Nudes), an antique shop, and in the home of friends.

Nude Brandy and Cordial The Nude on your left in the photo (with the satin finish stem) is the 3011/13 - 1 oz. Brandy and the one on the right is the 3011/14 - 1 oz. Cordial. Both have amethyst tops.

In the photo at right is the #3106 Cordial which measures just over 5½ inches in hcight. The Cordial on the Stradivari stem measures this same height also. In Roy's collection of Cordials only the Nude Stem is taller. Please note that both the bowl and stem of this #3106 cordial are cut.

The last photo (bottom, right) shows the Tuxedo 1 oz. Cordial. Reference for this can be found in the NCC 1949-53 Catalog Reprint on page 57. This one has a crystal bowl and a Carmen foot.

Tuxedo cordial We paid in a price range of $4 to $65 for these items - and NO, the garage sale Nude wasn't the cheapest piece either!
