This is an old Moser vase, Bohemian art glass, circa 1880.
The vase is in the shape of a goblet, with side handles, a round foot, a round belly, a neck that is round at the bottom and thins to a flared mouth. The color of the glass is a pale amber. The glass has a reverse type of thumbprint, but paneled on the neck.
The coralene bead design is around the belly, the foot and the neck. Beads are missing, and to be expected because of the age of the vase.
The rim of the mouth is polished flat and covered with gold, and with expected gold wear. What I originally thought were pinprick nicks on the rim, after carefully feeling the rim with my fingers, I think is a tiny bit of roughness due to the gold loss. There are a few pinprick nicks on the bottom edge. The nicks are to be expected because of the age of the vase. The gold bands on the lower part of the vase are still mostly intact.
The handles are a pull-out from the glass when it was hot, so the handles are not an exact match to each other.
The vase is 9 7/8” high and 4” wide at the belly.
There are no other flaws other than the ones I mentioned.
