Antique Bohemian Glass Lidded Small Goblet Gilded Decoration Faceted Stem c 1880
A decagonal (ten sided) faceted and gilded lidded antique Bohemian wine goblet dating from around 1880. This very collectable and decorative example of antique Bohemian glassware is a hand blown small goblet with a decorative cover or lid. Covered drinking glasses like this are referred to as Deckelpokal. It stands 8 1/4 inches high and has a 2 5/8ths inches foot hand painted with gilt stars. The stars continue up the cut, facted stem and on the hexagonal cuts at the lower part of the bowl.
The long panel cuts are beautifully hand gilded with a Rococo type design featuring swags and flowers below a deep border with dots, stars and triangles. The lid or cover has eight panel cuts below a knife edge knopped faceted finial. This too is gilded with a border to match the one on the glass and more stars above it. The glass is very attractive and a beautiful display piece to enhance any collection of antique Bohemian glass. It weighs 224g and is in very good antique condition with just a tiny chip or flaw to the inner edge of the gilded rim and a small chip to the inner rim of lid, a small rough area at the side of the lid, dating from manufacture and minor rubbing to the gilding.
