Incredible set of turn-of-the-century glassware, each featuring what appears to be a handprinted baseball image.  Each of five glasses measures approximately 3 1/2" high, made of thick glass, with an image of a batter having just hit a ball.  The glass is thick and durable, with what appears to have been gold painting around the rim.  Though the glasses are intact, the painting around the rim has mostly faded, and one of the glasses does have a crack (though the glass itself is still intact).  The pitcher measures approximately 10" at its highest, with a painted image of a pitcher, catcher and batter (who is facing the wrong way).  Paint is largely white, with some gold accents that are, as is the case with the glasses, somewhat worn away with age.  Pitcher exhibits a bit of light chipping at the lip, but is otherwise in outstanding condition, certainly usable, but mostly an elegant 19th Century baseball-related display.  Six pieces total.
