A gorgeous late 1800s art glass dresser box by the Bohemian designer Moser. The round powder or dresser box is cranberry red glass whose entire surface, except the bottom, is covered with a beautiful swirl pattern in thickly applied gold and platinum with intricately detailed leaves and tendrils picked out in gilt; small five-petaled flowers are formed from overlaid glass and are painted with subtle pastel shade enamels and the small leaves have raised enamels in caramel color. The oblique ribbons of gold with platinum foliage on the box and lid line up, as do the panels between which feature profuse foliage and flowers over the colored glass.
The neck of the box has five gold lines. There is a circle of while "moriage" enamel around the base of the box and around the central medallion on the lid. The lid seats easily on the box and does not form a compression seal. The box measures 4" diameter and is 3" high. It is in excellent condition- no chips, cracks or large scratches. There is just the slightest wear of the gilding at the shoulders, hardly noticeable. The bottom has a few small wear scratches from sitting on a surface. The box weighs 10.6 ounces. There are no hallmarks that I can find.
