This vase was bought in a thrift shop on a half-price sale day. I think it is a Harrach vase from the Historismus period. I asked Alfredo Villanueva and Warren Galle about it and they thought it my well be early Harrach 1860-1870.

It looks like two Etruscan/Roman/Pompeian/Greek musicians done in blue, green, white and cream enamels on an opaque brown milk glass. The foot is flat with no pontil and has a painted 11 (slightly rubbed) in black. The gilding on the base has been rubbed. It’s about 29 cm high.

I really like the fine enamel work on this vase which I think is similar to the work of the English firm Richardsons.

    This is a revival of the revival vase - which is absolutely beautiful!
    Wonder how you guys feel about all these 4 and 5 year old posts coming back in to the current show and tell line up? Some people we know are still around, others, who knows. ;-)

    It's almost CW archaeology ... I actually gave this one away a few years ago to Vinnies.
