- Item Not Available
For Sale I have a lovely vase made by a Bohemian Glass Company. The Item is known as a "Stag and Castle" or "Deer and Castle" Vase. The Glass is a Flashed Blue over Clear. The vase depicts separate scenes going around the Vase. The First is a Deer or Stag, the second is that of a Castle and the 3rd is a Stork or Egret. These are all wheel cut and acid etched with great detail by a master wheel cutter. They are cut from Blue to clear and they all three cut scenes are nestled in a Forest of Wheel Cut Ferns. There is two Victorian Style Wheel Cut Large letter C's facing each other that appear to look like oval windows separating each scene. The vase sits on a Round foot with 4 vertical style Thumbprint Indents and 4 Large Oval Windows at the Bottom. The Bottom round foot depicts similar wheel cutting. The is an exquisite Bohemian Vase that was made by a True Master. The vase has good weight not like the lighter pieces that were produced at a later period that look similar to this pattern. I thought possibly it could be "Moser" but I am not sure. The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is unsigned but displays a small countersunk Polished Pontil. This is the Mark of quality Art Glass. The top rim is polished smooth and the Vase was put together in 2 Parts. The foot was applied to the Vessel. The Foot was blown from the Bottom and the vase was blown from the top. This is why the Bottom has a counter sunk Pontil and the top has a nice smooth polished rim. You commonly see the Red ones. You almost never the the Blue ones as the collectors tend to hold onto these beauties.
