Antique Bohemian Cased Glass Gilded White on Cobalt Blue Pitcher and Goblets Set
Antique Bohemian Cased Glass Gilded White on Cobalt Blue Pitcher and Goblets Set. Presented is a stunning, hand-blown case-glass pitcher and two goblets set made in Bohemia (Czech Republic) sometime in the 1850's through 1880's. This gorgeous antique set, which is in wonderful condition, is a statement in bold contrasts, large, generously-sized forms and elegant artistry. We believe, in fact, that this set has been in a museum display, based on the numbers written in red enamel on its undersides. The main body of each piece is crafted from two layers of blown glass, opaque white over translucent cobalt blue, with the white glass cut or etched away to create long petal shapes, flowing upward from bowls and outward on stemware pedestals, subsequently gilded with intricately-detailed tree forms, flowing coral-like designs and rim borders. There are no maker's marks on the set. Each piece has an identifying number written at the bottom. The condition of the entire set is excellent! There are absolutely no chips, cracks or irregularities anywhere and the pitcher handle is firm and whole. Dimensions: Pitcher - 10 1/8 inches tall by 5 inches diameter at the mouth, 6 inches at widest point with handle Goblets - 7 5/8 inches tall by 4 inches diameter at the mouth tm.
