Bavarian Decanter & Shot Glass Set by Anheuser-Busch

24 Mar

Wunderbar! Who can resist such an adorable collection?! We were instantly drawn to this traditionally German-styled set by its beautiful coloring and detail. The artisan faux “aging” technique gives it so much rustic charm and character. That cobalt blue glaze is so lustrous, very eye-catching. 

This is one of those treasure hunt finds that starts out as love at first sight based solely on appearances, but ends up completely surprising you with its degree of rarity, too. Some careful research shed light on the origin and process of this collection – what a gem!

Anheuser-Busch Ceramarte German Decanter & Shot Glass Set

This 7-piece collection was created exclusively for Anheuser-Busch / Budweiser as a LIMITED EDITION promotional set in 1976. It includes a highly-detailed decanter with cork stopper and six matching shot glass cups in traditional Bavarian styling.

Everything in this set is made of thick, quality ceramic and is hand painted. All pieces feature a wonderful raised design, adding great texture!

Each piece is highly stylized, crafted with a rough paint technique in brown on the exteriors, creating a faux “aged” effect.

The center imagery on both sides of the decanter (boy and girl kissing on the front, a floral spray on the back) features a striking, deep cobalt blue glaze background.

The six matching cups are each adorned with the same costumed figures – three cups with the girl, three cups with the boy.

Truly a colorful, fun, quaint little set to own – whether for decorative purposes in the home bar, or for functional use. Definitely an eye-catching conversation piece!

This collection is in great vintage condition. No chips, cracks, or structural damage found to any piece. We’ve gently cleaned this set prior to listing, and as you can see, the brown “aged” appearance is artist-applied, NOT dirt or wear. Clean interiors on all pieces. No signs of past use (other than display, perhaps) found.

The set was created as a limited edition promotional product for Anheuser-Busch / Budweiser in 1976 by Ceramarte, Brazil. It is completely hand painted, and all pieces bear the signature logo backstamp of Ceramarte.

The decanter is marked “Coracao” stamped in the mold. Model number (as identified in collector’s catalogs) is CS31, part of the “Early Years” collection.

Gorgeous Blue Ombre Stoneware Pottery Set

8 Mar

This vintage tea set is such a stunning find! Initially, we were drawn to the absolutely gorgeous hues of blue – definitely an eye-catcher. But to touch, hold, and feel the true weight and beauty of this handmade stoneware pottery in all its glory really takes it to the next level! Such a fabulous, unique collection. One of our all-time shop favorites, for sure!

Stoneware Pottery Tea Set, Signed Raquel Pérez, Venezuela

Gorgeous shades of periwinkle and pastel blues accent this natural stoneware vintage pottery with a brilliant ombre effect. Natural, charming, and perfect for cottage chic kitchen styling!

This listing includes a large tea set signed by studio pottery artist Raquel Pérez of Taller Artesanal, Venezuela. All pieces are included as shown: six teacups, a creamer pitcher, a lidded sugar bowl, and the perfectly-sized serving tray to complete the collection.

Excellent vintage condition. No chips, cracks, or structural damage found. Extremely light shelf wear is apparent on the bottom of the tray; otherwise, there are no signs of past use or wear.

Each piece in this lovely collection is stamped on the bottom by “Taller Artesanal” pottery studio.

The creamer pitcher bears an original hang tag, secured with soft rope, stamped with “Raquel Pérez, hecho a mano (handmade), Venezuela” as well.

This unique serving ware was crafted for utilitarian use and offered for sale at local markets. The overall beauty and charm made them exquisite tourist souvenirs and gifts, which is likely how this brilliant find made its way back to the USA, circa 1970′s.
