This is a Bohemian Czech art glass ewer, pitcher or vase. The date is circa 1890.
Mica flakes are put between the inner and outer layers of glass. The inner layer is white opal. The outer layer is amber. There may be another outer layer of clear glass as the mouth rim has an edge of clear glass. The handle is clear glass.
The ewer is 9 ¾” high and 6” wide at the belly.
The mouth has deep crimps. The handle has indentations.
Where the lower handle meets the belly, there is a small nick near the left side edge. There are some air bubbles and some tiny bumps. The underside of the belly has a few blobs of white opal caught up in the outer layer of glass. The pontil is round and indented and polished, except for some reason the pontil snap-off shows inside and it is rough and unpolished.
