Rare Pink Moser Glass 9 Vase Bird Insects Oak Leaves Acorns Enamelled Bohemian
An extremely rare and truly stunning pink Ludwig Moser glass vase. Profusely decorated with red, green, yellow & blue enamel oak leaves. A rare 3 dimensional enamelled bird to one side & a multi coloured enamel insect to the other side, many applied gold acorns and tons of gold gilding. This vase is not marked to the base, many pieces were not but it is 100% guaranteed Ludwig Moser. Amazing piece of Moser glass that looks even better in the flesh, the camera tries to capture the beauty but it doesn't capture it as well as the eye does.
CONDITION: This Moser g lass vase is in really great display condition but there is a long crack in the vase body. It is extremely stable due to the thickness of the glass. The crack starts in the base on the right hand side and runs up through the birds left wing around one acorn, down in front of the left hand side handle through a green, red, blue & red leaf, it ends 2 before reaching the base on the side. This sounds horrendous but rest assured all is noted for full accuracy and the crack barely notices unless closely examined.
There is not a single chip or flake of enamel missing where this crack is. There is some wear to the gold gilding as expected with a piece of this age, mainly on the handles and the top rim.
