Maker and Age: Moser (Bohemian); 1850s-60s
Details: An impressive hand blown vase -- the style of the hand cut pattern around the widest part of the bowl indicates the quality of the Moser workmanship as well as the mid-1800s era of creation, which in turn points to an example of the early use of enameled designs by the Moser decorators.
The etched grape leaves, branches and tendrils are all hand enameled with gold gilt; the bunches of grapes are created using tiny dots of white enameling. Beautiful art work!
The slightly flared rim is subtly scalloped and fire polished and the pontil on the bottom is ground and polished.
Dimensions: 4.25 inches high X 4.25 inches in diameter
Condition: Excellent! The clarity of the glass is outstanding. There is only a bit of wear to the gold gilt on the grape leaves around the neck of the vase where the vase would have received the most handling when picked up.
Shipping: The vase will be shipped via USPS Priority mail with insurance. International customers, please inquire about availability and cost of insured shipping to your location.
