Victorian vase
« on: November 06, 2010, 08:40:01 AM »
Hmmmm ... perhaps a better title will come to me.

Any info on the possible maker of this piece will be greatly appreciated.

I picked this up 2years ago from an old lady selling coins and what she termed... the stuff her elders had accumulated over the years.
This one was owned by her grandmother apparently along with a fair bit of cranberry glass she liked and was holding onto.
I felt really guilty about the low cost.... postage in a highly specified method cost more than the item.
I ended up paying her again when it arrived here, of which she couldn't understand.

The flower decorations are glass, gold line work on it is just visible, polished off over the years I guess as it is soft.

170mm high x 140mm wide

Any general idea's on this one please? 
People with any knowledge of these items are very hard to find in my area, let alone Perth, so I haven't had the chance to understand more about it.
Is that gold line work restorable without firing?
So it goes.

it is Bohemian, possibly from Harrach'sche. This dotted enamel decoration is found a lot, there must have been an enormous production. It looks like a tumble-up i.e. a water decanter with an upside down matching glass for the bedside. Unless the inside of the neck is prepared for a stopper.

Oh cool... thats a lead on what it is.  I recall seeing small green glasses with a similar decoration like you suggest a few years ago in Sydney.
Hasn't been ground taper for a stopper.

I thought it was a vase!   LOL   

Pretty thing and very light weight. Pity about the rim chip but thats not going further so all good. I bought it because I liked it and never sold on anything in the past... no need or intent to do so.

Next 'unknown' here next:  An unmarked Red / Clear cameo glass dish with a triple coral pattern purchased from a seller in Belgium 4years ago.
So it goes.

Pardon my ignorance on this....   is the term 'Bohemian' kinda generic like 'Murano' ?   
So it could be descriptive of a region and a group of manufacturers in that region?
So it goes.
