Rare 1930s Morgantown  (West Virginia, US) 'Art Moderne' martini glasses in clear and 'Anna Rose' crystal.  SET of FOUR. Shown in Morgantown's 1931 catalog, number 7640. The light pink bowls are hard to image.  The color doesn't come out well. In image 2 below, the glints of pink show the true color.  The beautiful 'Anna Rose' color shimmers in the light.  The stems were made of colorless crystal. The bowls were blown into an optic mold producing 11 vertical panels.  The stems were made with a 2-part mold.  The center of the stem is hollow.  The foot  was hand-made and applied to the stem which is applied to the bowl. Very hard to find due to low survival rate.  This delicate stemware is about 80 years old.  Martini-sized, measuring just under 5' tall with a 2.75' wide bowl.  Shown in image 3 next to a Morgantown Anna Rose Tiburon water/wine goblet (pair available separately) to help show size. Three are in like-new condition.  The fourth has a tiny smooth inner rim flake.  Can be detected by running a finger on the inner rim.
