Old Cider Glass with Painted Enamel Elf Design

This odd shaped glass is generally referred to as a cider glass. These vintage glasses were apparently made for Austrian bath houses in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The translucent olive green glass has vertical optic panels and is enhanced in a Moser style with an enameled design on one side only. The design is an elf-like character with a couple of large keys hanging from his belt. He has a rather impish smile and is holding a tray with a challis on it. The top edge is ever so slightly scalloped, following the vertical panels and the bottom is polished.

It is slightly tapered and measures about 2 ½" wide at the top and 1 ½" wide at the bottom. It measures about 3 ½" high and 1 3/8" across at the top. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
