In excellent original condition and very finely engraved example of historismus. Features a detailed "tall ship", harbor, with church in the background and is titled "De Nobele Zeevart". Finely cut and faceted stem with fire polished pontil. This measures 10 1/4" tall and 3" diameter. The production of this dates to the 3rd or 4th quarter of the 19th century and is either Dutch or Bohemian, but is intended to imitate a c1750-1775 Dutch example. Still a well made, and exacting historismus example. I have dropped the price on this 3 times.....it is an amazing piece with super fine detailing.....apparently it really impresses in hand!
