Bohemian Miniature Cased Glass Mug, Crystal over Cranberry with Enamel and Gold Leaf Decoration. Surrounding the Mug are four deep scallops, each with flowering branch. Separating each scallop is a three (3) leaf sprig. Scallops, branches and sprigs are all in heavy muted orange enamel. Enameling also encircles the top of the Mug. Translucent gold leaf fills the background of each scallop and outlines the sprigs. The applied crystal handle is also covered in the same gold leaf. The pontil and bottom of the Mug are ground and polished, as well as the rim. Several pinhead or smaller sized bubble inclusions in the base. It is in near mint condition, except for light wear to handle's golf leaf, as expected in this 19th Century Miniature Mug.
Condition: Near mint; some light wear to the gold leaf as expected. Unsigned, attributed to Moser.
Dimensions: Diameter of the mouth: 1 3/16"; Diameter of the foot: 1 1/8" (flared slightly); Height: 1 ½"; Diameter at the handle (max): 1 ¾".
