For the advanced collector of Bohemian Moser glass objects, is offered this extremely rare 24-piece marquetry glass table set (only 7 pieces are shown in the picture since my photographing table isn't large enough to hold all of them without stacking), made around 1900 - it is extremely difficult to come across such a large Moser marquetry glass set (because of the labor-intensive process involved in such pieces, Karlsbader Secession glassware were made at Moser for only a short period of time) . The set consists of 8 bowls, 7 cups and 9 plates. Pieces are decorated with marquetry red and purple fruits with green leaves. The fruits are further decorated with engraved details. There are engraved birds, butterflies and insects on the pieces. The pieces are also highlighted with thickly enameled golden vines and leaves. Polished pontils (there are spurious 'galle' marks on the pontils of some of the pieces - see 6th picture). Each plate is 6 inches (15 cm) wide and 1 1/8 inches (3 cm) high. Each bowl is 4 3/4 inches (12 cm) wide and 2 5/8 inches (6,5 cm) high. Each footed cup is 3 5/8 inches (9,2 cm) tall and 3 5/8 inch wide. Overall, the set is in very good condition - there are minute fleabites on the rims of two of the bowls and 3 of the plates. Though not signed by Moser, these are guaranteed to have been made by Moser - refer to similar-motif marquetry glass shown in Plate 138, page 108, of Gary D. Baldwin's book, 'Moser Glass - the Klabin collection' (shown in 7th and 8th pictures here for your convenience). Furthermore, a Moser marquetry glass cruet with similar decor is displayed at the Passau Museum of Glass (shown in last picture here for your convenience).
