This is a stunning antique Bohemian ruby cut to clear glass covered comport (or lidded compote) with wheel engraved designs incorporating chateau, stag, bird and shell motifs. It is marked on one side R. G. Berlin 1895. I don't think this was part of the original engraving and may have been added to commemorate a special occasion - possibly when the item was given as a gift.
It measures 10 inches to the top of the finial and it is 4 inches across the base. It is 5 inches in diameter. It is in very good condition with no chips cracks or other damage to the glass.
