This is the very first time that I come across one single piece of Czech Deco glass combining so many techniques. 7.5"/18.5 cm tall. The lower part is covered in yellow, orange and red spots. The middle part has a very realistic enameling of fruits and leaves (I'd say, almost tridimensional). The top has a a 1" hammered metal collar. The glass, which looks black but in reality is deep red, has a matte finish we call "satin". And the bottom has a paper label! If you look at the top, you will notice the vase was enameled to the rim and then fitted with the metal collar. Unfortunately, WW2 would put a definitive end to this type of Czech glass production.
