Antique Cut & Gilt Moser Art Glass Parrots 3 Leg Vase Masterwork -applied Rig
GORGEOUS MOSER CUT AND GILT 3 PARROTS VASE. This lovely piece was made by Moser Art Glass, in Bohemia in the late 1880's. The vase is hand blown, hand cut and hand gilt (gold encrusted). It has 3 applied, scrolled legs and three vertical applied flat shell rigoree bands. The glass is a true emerald green color. The fineness of these cuts was done by a master's hand for sure, it is a MUST SEE in person to really appreciate fully. Some of the cuts are minute and each is deliberate and finely executed. Each parrot is different, all sitting on branches among tropical leaves and flowers. The vase is small, measuring only 4 1/2" high, 1 5/8" wide across the mouth, 3 1/2" wide side to side including rigoree and 3" from foot to foot. Each vertical band is just under 2" long and 1/4" wide. They are placed just under 1 1/4 from the neck.
These two small defects are hard to notice and really don't detract much, this is reflected in the price. An undamaged or perfect piece would be listed for hundreds of dollars.
