Description

Six wonderful shot glasses with Saint Hubert, the patron Saint of Hunters.  Made in France these glasses have the stag with the cross between his antlers, and St. Hubert kneeling on the ground, with his horse and dog.  There is some lovely floral detail as well.  The same stag as shown on Jagermeister labels.

From Wikipedia  -His wife died giving birth to their son, and Hubert retreated from the court, withdrew into the forested Ardennes, and gave himself up entirely to hunting. But a great spiritual revolution was imminent. On Good Friday morning, when the faithful were crowding the churches, Hubert sallied forth to the chase. As he was pursuing a magnificent stag or hart, the animal turned and, as the pious legend narrates, he was astounded at perceiving a crucifix standing between its antlers, while he heard a voice saying: "Hubert, unless thou turnest to the Lord, and leadest an holy life, thou shalt quickly go down into hell". Hubert dismounted, prostrated himself and said, "Lord, what wouldst Thou have me do?" He received the answer, "Go and seek Lambert, and he will instruct you." 


These glasses are in very good condition, marked France on the bottom.  They stand approx. 2 inches tall.
