Fantastic Hand-blown and Hand-Cut Dark Ruby Overlay Bohemian Pitcher with Two Tumblers ~ early 1900’s - image 1 of 9

Seeing the light glisten off these pieces is absolutely beautiful! A thick layer of dark ruby red glass was overlaid on colorless and then cut away to reveal the pattern. The rims are polished flat. The pattern and size vary slightly because they are hand-made. Top quality workmanship is truly shown on these pieces. Etched out of the glass are wonderful vines and leave patterns. The leaves have a cameo effect on the glass make them extra special. Round thumb prints decorate the neck and a clear handle completes this piece. This piece has a flaw on the body where the handle attaches to the neck portion. We aren't sure if possibly this could have happened during the creation of this magnificent piece. Please see pictures for condition. When these were made only the very rich could afford to own them. The form, method of creation, style of decor, and crystal recipe help date this wonderful set dates from the mid 1800s to early 1900s. The beautiful "Bohemian" style of overlay cut glass has been made for centuries and still made today. Present day overlay glass is mixed, blown and cut by machine, usually made in Poland or the Czech Republic (and even in China). These stunning relics of the past were all hand-cut. Yesteryear's Bohemian glass was made in France, Germany or Czechoslovakia. At the turn of the 19th Century, American makers like Duncan Miller made this beautiful glass style also.

Measure: Pitcher: 9 1/2' T x 6 1/4" W Tumblers: 4" H x 3"W
