Antique Bohemian Overlay Enamelled and Gilded Cut Glass Vase
« on: December 23, 2018, 12:45:25 PM »
A very nice antique Bohemian overlay enamelled and gilded glass vase. Sadly af on the rim.
Green glass cased with cobalt. I was convinced the inner green glass would be uranium but it is not. Hand painted and gilded.

Height 6" / 15cm.
Weight 458gm.

I think described more as a vase than beaker / becher.
Unsure as to age but would think pre 1900, maybe closer to mid 1800's


Thanks Roy

has a very similar look to this one:

No idea of the veracity of the date id, but I had instinctively thought yours might be around this time, later than c.1850s but cannot give you proof of that.  Just that everything about it, the colour overlay, the shape, the simplicity of the cutting, and the colours of the decorated enamel etc, all made me think later than mid 19th.  I am open to correction ... these can be very difficult to date as they have been made for around 180 years.

Btw does it have a flat polished foot i.e a very large pontil mark if you like that goes right to the edge? or does it look as though it was blown from the rim into a mold and cut off at the rim?
I couldn't see a pontil mark on the base and it's difficult to tell.

Not 100% sure as it was not uranium I decided to let it go, so no longer have it.
