This is a Bohemian Czech art glass vase. The maker is Harrach. The date is circa 1876.

The vase is 11 ¼” high and 5” wide at the upper belly below the neck.

This color of glass was made by Harrach and is described as being gray-brown and opaque; you can see your hand through the glass if you look into the interior while holding the vase. The shape is mold blown.

Around 1876, Harrach decorated a limited number of glass vases in a Renaissance Revival framework, with carefully painted small depictions on the front intended to emulate cameos of that time period. It is a type of white enamel or paste applied in thin layers, similar to pate-sur-pate on porcelain. The cameos were typically of putti. This specific cameo is one of a rearing horse with a putti or person trying to hold the horse in check. The remainder of the vase is decorated in patterns of applied white enamel with a few lines of thin black.

There is a little bit of wear to the decoration as this is an old vase. There are no nicks, chips or cracks.

The rim is polished flat. The bottom is smooth and the middle is indented.
