    Rare Bohemia Crystal Champagne Server
    Hi all
    New to this forum, and I have a question.
    I was recently given, by my ageing parents this beautiful Bohemia crystal champagne server.

    It is 24% lead crystal
    It is 52cm high
    32cm diameter
    Weighs about 10kg.
    Inside is a removeable 2 layer arrangement with a hole in both layers for the bottle, and 6 slots in the upper one for champagne flutes

    My question is:
    does anyone know when this was made, and where would be the best 'market' for me to sell this, as it is too big for our house.
    The crystal expert at Sotherbys' had never even seen one like it!!!
    The crystal expert at 'Bonhams' who said it could be worth anything up to £3,000 !!!!!
    All help greatfully received
