A beautiful quality antique 19th century Bohemian green glass vase of slender fluted tulip form which has been very skilfully cut with six overlayed white geometric straight sided petal shaped panels. Three of these highly decorative panels are cross cut with small strawberry diamonds ( some collectors refer to this as hobnail cut - cross hatched ) the other three are enamelled with colourful floral blooms on a richly gilded ground, the space between the panels having a gilt floriate scrolling pattern.
This very stylish glass vase with a gilded castellated "Van Dyke" rim, stands on a round pedestal foot which is also overlayed with geometric straight sided petal shape panels that are enamelled and gilded, it has a slender hexagonally faceted annulated knopped stem.
This is a beautiful quality and highly decorative antique item that dates to the 19th century during the reign of Queen Victoria circa 1865.
The vase does not have any makers marks it could possibly have been made by the renowned Silesian glass maker Countess Schaffgotsch'sche Josephinenhütte ( Josephinenhütte of Szklarska Poręba ʃ klarska pɔrɛmba ] (German Schreiberhau ) is a town in the district of Jeleniogórski in the Lower Silesian province in Poland. However there are a number of other possibilities for manufacturers who made similar items. They include Harrach at Neuwelt, Moser at Meierhoefen near Karlsbad, Meyr's Neffe at Adolf near Winterberg.
We have listed for purchase separately a very similar sized and decorated vase by Josephinenhütte but, with some slight differences in the shape and decoration of the panels, size of the knop but with white main panels as opposed to gilded backgrounds. As shown in the last image - together they do make a nice matched pair.
This beautiful antique vase is in excellent antique condition with just a little wear to the gilding.
