One of our users has sent us pictures of Hennessy glassware. As she’s asking for some further informations it’s kind of a riddle. So if anybody can give any further information we’d be very grateful.
Including some china and crystal the glassware was purchased at an estate sale. Included in the batch was a gift set of 4 small Hennessy Snifter glasses, a booklet, “The Gift of Taste” and a slip that could be completed to obtain another set for $1 and .15 cents U.S. for customs handling charge.
Unfortunately neither she nor us could find out the date of the publication, but it is remarkable that the picture of the Hennessy factory on the web site is different from the one in the booklet. Schieffelin & Co, 30 Cooper Square, New York 3, NY were the distributors of this gift set.
And just to reiterate: Any information that can be given would be appreciated.
