GUEST: My husband likes art glass, and he decided these were too pricy, he wasn't interested. So I went back the next day and bought them for him for his birthday.
APPRAISER: Oh, that's nice!
GUEST: And that was about 30 years ago.
APPRAISER: This is a wonderful small group by Tiffany Studios. Two are unusual and two aren't. So the two unusual ones are these, and these are much more common. This is a salt, and this is a shot glass. These, however, are much rarer. These are considered miniatures, and that's a whole different collecting category. They're much rarer and they're much more desirable. These pieces, as I said, they're sort of common. Even though they're Tiffany, they're wonderful gold iridescent glass, they sell in a gallery setting for probably about $200 to $250.
APPRAISER: Now, these are more special. This one is probably in the $1,500 to $2,000 range, and this is probably in the $1,000 to $1,500 range.
