Massive Harrach Pedestal Vase - Etruscan
« on: December 13, 2020, 05:22:47 PM »
Hi everybody,

I have bought a massive opaline glass vase, which I'm pretty sure it's made by Harrach.
Although it could always use a second opinion. Especially from you guys ;)

The vase is made of opaque/opaline glass.
It's very large, with a height of 47,5 cm (18,7 inch),
and a diameter of 24 cm (9,45 inch).

The coupe is detachable from the pedestal. All in very good condition.

The Etruscan images are transferprinted.
I have searched about it a lot. My options were:
-Richardson (U.K.)
-Russia
-Harrach (Bohemia)

Most Russian pieces I believe are hand painted.
Richardson's vases didn't really compare to mine.

The best example is from the Harrach website.

I also read a number of threads on this forum.

I hope you guys could tell me more about it.


Thank you very much in advance!

I only see now that there shouldn't be any ID requests here.
Although I'm pretty sure of Harrach. Also found this just now:

I think it is Harrach

just linking the pic you linked on the museum website - sso everyone can see it without searching for it:

http://www.sklarnaharrachov.cz/getFile/id:28449/lastUpdateDate:2017-02-10+16:01:00/image.jpg

Can I see some close ups of the transfer printed figures faces please?  Some good clear close up :) :)

Thank you.  Just like to compare to the figures on my various pieces in similar style.

Your man here
https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=70300.0;attach=239005;image
is the same as one in the From Neuwelt to the Whole World book pp187 top right hand pic although that one is all browns and reds costume, no blue.
The caption says
quote - 'Drawings of transfer print decoration - matching themes of romische Figuren were often applied to other forms from the period c.1865 (AH 288).'

Hi,

I have just made some extra pictures for you. Then I read "from the faces". :p
I have made them of the animations themselves. But they're quite clear though.

Hi, talking about comparing faces, in British Glass by Hajdamach, plate 71 page 99 shows a picture of a registered Richardson transfer print design of three Etruscan Type figures. In that plate, the faces of the figures look very similar to the faces in the first and third images in your reply #5, especially if you look at the shape of the chin, nose, forehead, and eyes. Maybe all the manufacturers copied the same original source?

Unfortunately I don't have that book to see for myself. As to a source of images I did saw a book about these kind of figures and animations a couple of weeks ago. Won't be able to find it back online.

But I assume they a copied a little bit of each other. As it says on the Harrach website, next to the pedestal coupe..  I believe it said that English glassmakers started this neo-classic style but engravements in clear glass and crystal. And then Harrach try to copy this style by making the glass look like ancient pottery combined which animations etc.

I think they all influenced one another.
