Antique French Etched Souvenir Glass with the original woven straw basket holder, used for taking the healing waters at the Royal Spa. In the 1800's,  visiting a spa with natural mineral waters was quite popular with high society members. Visiting the spa, and drinking the healing waters several times a day was thought to be invigorating and good for one's health.

Little glasses like this, etched with the name of the spa and also a measure on the back, were used by ladies and gentleman to ensure that they did not take too much of the water. Such a great find, rarely seen with the original basket so intact, the leather strap works. A beloved treasure kept over a century by a family as a reminder of a relative's Grand Tour of Europe.

  • Measures:glass-3-1/4" h, Basket 4"h.
