I was given these two vases as a present today – clear crystal and raised gold enamel decoration. The main body of the vase is partitioned into four sections by glass strips that whiplash elegantly at the top, at the base of each section is added a clear glass ‘peacocks eye’ (usually these can be found on Webb & Powell with green or purple at the eye centre).
Each section acts as a panel for hand enamelling beautifully executed, showing woodland foliage and a central rose.
The base of each vase shows a lot of fine age ware and has a concave polished pontil.
The rim is gilded - I can’t find a decorator’s mark so I presume these are of good quality but not top notch.
I feel these are Bohemian c1900s and perhaps from Novy Bor / Umgebung – perhaps one of the Haida based companies that specialised in raised enamel work.
What do others think?
