I've been collecting Moser glass for over 30 years, and when this GEM surfaced I had to have it! This is quite a piece of work, hot pink slightly opalescent glass, with amber colored hot glass applied tadpoles on the front and sides of the vase. The rim is hand cut and tooled, gilded in gold. The base features a polished pontil where it's signed "Moser Karlsbad".
Although this certainly has modern flair to it, with some deco queues even, yet given the ultra high quality Victorian style enameling, I'd date this piece to c.1890.
Before Moser had their own glass furnace in 1895, they were decorating glass produced by other high end glass companies such as Harrach and Loetz.
Dimensions: 6.5" tall.
Condition: Excellent antique condition.
Maker: Moser, Karlsbad.
Vintage: c. 1885 - 1890.
