Found on eBay - interesting 1890s marked piece by Harrach in ruby glass encased in clear. Unusual in that there is no opaque inner layer as is often found on Harrach pieces from this time frame, and as such, is on the thin side and somewhat light in weight, as Harrach pieces go. Marked with what I call the Harrach "messy mark" - the feather plume mark within a circle that looks like the stamp bled out when it was applied. There are other versions of this mark with crisp, clean edges where the plume shape is well-defined, but I have other pieces with this type of mark also. Beautiful floral enamels and twisted rib design add interest.
