Offered for sale is an outstanding example of the artistic enameled glass that was produced in the Bohemian glass houses during the late 18th to 19th centuries. This pair of caramel opaline glass vases is attributed to the oldest and most known glass company Harrach. The vases embellished with hand painted thick impasto enamel birds, butterflies in a field of flowers and bordered with raised beading. The oval bodies are raised on socle bases.
The Harrach Glass House, nestled in the remote mountains of Northern Bohemia, was started in 1712 by Count Harrach. Their production was so prolific that they also provided blanks for other glass houses and employed a large number of designers and decorators. Many pieces attributed to other makers have eventually proven to be Harrach productions, and identification still remains a challenge.
Size: 10 1/2" height.
The vases are in excellent condition, There is a tiny nick on the edge of one vase and couple same tiny nicks on other, these are very small (mentioned for accuracy) and don't detract from the beauty of this museum quality and absolutely beautiful pair.
Layaway is welcome.
