Fantastic mid 19th century Bohemian deeply carved/engraved glass pitcher. Super facet cut and beveled body from top to bottom, that is extremely deeply carved and detailed as I hope the photos show. This features a lion attacking a horse with a rifled man trying get off a shot.....in hand this is awesome. The photos are extremely tough to capture the detailing on this.....but it is much better than I can capture and goes all around. Each leaf on a tree is engraved. This piece is felt in hand.....super depth. This is a rather massive example considering it is about 13 3/4" tall and about 7" across at the widest and very thick glass. I wont go near that handle as the bottom attachment has a crack visible if you look closely, some would call it annealing or flawed but all I know is that this is a scarce quality of work. About 160 or so years old and very heavy! No chips, and no repairs......just dont carry it by the handle.
