For Sale is a lovely piece of Art Glass made by Tiffany Studios of New York, New York. The Item is a "Stemmed Sherbet" and it is done in the very desirable Pastel Green Opalescent color.

The Sherbet is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The only issue is in the making as there are a few inclusions or carbon spots on the inside glass. This was made this way and not damage.
