This trumpet vase shades from a very pale cranberry at the base to the darker cranberry at the top (almost a rubena). The body of the base, as well as the foot, is decorated with heavy orange enamel in elongated drips and drizzles and dots over which on the base and foot and the upper 2 ½ - 4" is over-layed with an application of translucent gold. In high relief around the top and base of the trumpet vase are applied glass violets decorated in great detail associated with applied enamel violet buds and leaves. The leaves are decorated with gold leaf.
An example of applied violets on Moser glass can be seen on page 53, plate 96, of the Book Ludwig (Ludvik) Moser King of Glass by Mural K. Charon; copyright 1984. ISBN#0-917231-00-7.
Vase is unsigned, attributed to Moser.
Height: 14 7/8" Diameter of foot: 3 9/16" Diameter of top: 3 15/16"
Condition: it appears that one violet petal has a chip. See Photo #3. Several others have irregular edges to their petal edges but it appears this is from the blowing and attaching of the glass flower petals. See Photo #4. Photo #5 is an interior view of the vase illustrating the shading of the cranberry, from light to darker, and the translucency of the gold leaf. Translucent gold leaf was commonly used by Moser in the production of his art glass. Gold has normal wear for age and use. The raised orange enamel dots and drizzles have been intentionally wiped of gold leafing for the purpose of highlighting.
