    Have you been able to match up these stoppers with their corresponding decanters and/or bottles? (At least one of the tags seems to indicate that the bottle is around somewhere!)

    If Baccarat, and you have the bottle, that could be a very nice find - and we'd love to see it!

    Stoppers without their bottles DO sell, but you need to be very specific about sizes, as they're often used to replace missing or broken stoppers from other vessels - and if they don't fit, there's not much use to them.

    Check for the matching decanters, cruets, or whatever. They'll be worth far more as a whole!

    I don't believe it had a match, I'm pretty sure they would have been kept together. I can add this to my list of thing's to look into. Thank you

    The little note I've circled made me think that the decanter might have been stored elsewhere:

    I have approx. 100 interesting stoppers, over the years, have matched maybe 3 to bases. If the size is right, the style is wrong. At my age, I'm running out of time to ever match these up...but hope springs eternal!

    My mother bought ones she thought were pretty & had a pressed glass bowl filled with them, just to look at.

    Hopefully you still have the corner cabinet and items in it.
    Would like to see if the bottle is sick like the stopper. (Sick glass not being a good thing.)
    Or maybe the stopper is just dirty and needs a washing.


    Adding:
    To tell the truth, the one on the right that is crystal clear looks more like a Baccarat stopper than the one labeled. Not sure I have ever seen Baccarat become sick, unless it was buried.

    I talked to my dad today while working, and he says that there are a few decanturs which they might go to, he just didn't know enough about them and figured if they went together they would be together. I'll add this to my list of "needs further examination"
