Lobmeyr Small Cut Glass Pitcher Creamer, Hand Painted Polychrome Enamels.
Lobmeyr Small cut Glass Pitcher, Hand Painted Polychrome Enamels. This dainty and delicate 4” pitcher was made C.1872 as part of Lobmeyr’s “Bunt Rococo” series. The rococo series was designed by Heinrich Bermannn and executed by Meyr’s Neff for J & L Lobmeyr of Vienna. This very elaborate pattern was quite costly to produce.
The feature or focal point is a young man dressed in 18th century clothing, sitting on a brown tree stump and playing a stringed instrument. He wears a lengthy brown jacket, mauve colored knickers, white stockings and gold buckled shoes. His hair or wig is white and his rather large hat hatches in color the mauve pants. A colorful rococo border of C-scrolls in reds, blues and greens are accented with gold gilt swirls and leaf-filled branches with tiny flowers.
The brilliant crystal glass is entirely panel cut, with the panels changing slightly at each juncture where the shape of the pitcher fluctuates. This exquisite cutting even extends to the bottom with a cut design appropriate for the round base. Gold gilding on the rim extends partially to the top of the applied handle that is smooth cut and angled. What a delight this outstanding jewel will make to display on its own or in a grouping with other antique glass!
SIZE: 4” high.
MARKS: None apparent but is guaranteed to be Lobmeyr.
CONDITION: Excellent with very light wear to a little of the cold painted gold work. The wear is minimal but noted for accuracy in the description.
