Gorgeous & rare antique Victorian or Napoleon III era French, Bohemian or Moser heavy white opaline glass 9.25" jardiniere or centerpiece with stunning scalloped or lobed shaping, gold enamel & 'jeweled' accenting and two hand painted portrait miniature medallions! Isn't this one fantastic! I noticed it up at Susan's and snatched it up to do photos and get it listed, only later did she tell me she had planned to replace the few small missing ruby glass 'jewel' accents and then keep it for herself :). Hurry up before she gets back in town and removes the listing. In any event, we think it's either Moser or possibly French but we know it's definitely scrumptious! Large, thick, semi-opaque white opaline with gold enamel and a portrait medallion on each side. Don't miss it!
Very good to excellent condition. Possibly a tiny nip to the rim and, as you can see, there is some slight scratching to the told enamel but no larger chips, no cracks, etc. As noted above, there are a few of the small round ruby colored glass 'jewels' missing that we'd planned to replace. Two are replaced and I photographed it before we could add a little gold to make them more like the originals (but we'll do that before mailing). See pictures for all measurements.
