Veronika at Moser came back to me very quickly and with a lovely and detailed response.
She has shown the pictures to their historian and they have confirmed:
- This oroplastic design ('Phoenix' /'Asiatic Pheasant') has never been used by Moser
(Mike I know you said this in the beginning
but I thought having seen that apparently signed Moser piece in Miller's 20th century glass it did need to be formally double checked)
- The design of the glass item does not correspond with Moser production
She has also confirmed that Moser pieces of this type are 'mostly signed'.
So...unless I am mistaken in thinking the oroplastic design is the same as mine, the amethyst oroplastic piece on page 55 of Miller's 20th Century Glass might be signed Moser but isn't a Moser piece.
Please could someone double check that I have got my facts right and that the oroplastic gilded band is the same as the one on my perfume? Many thanks
Lastly, have we now firmly precluded the possibility that the blank could have been supplied by Moser by their comment 'that the design of the glass item does not correspond with Moser production'.
