I have four of these delicate tumblers with applied gold gilt. All are in Excellent condition with minimal top edge loss. Each stands about 3 inches tall and is polished on the bottom.

No markings, but in the style of Moser-- which of course was copied by a multitude of glass makers.

The colors on these are fantastic. They go from a clear bottom to green at the top.

    Actually better than Moseresque...lol. I have yet to see any raised enamel Moser. I have been researching this shape for about twenty years and so far the best guesstimate is somewhere in the Northeast United States. High Victorian and rather uncommon shape (4sided by 3). It is a combination of enamel and gilt giving a raised texture. The polished bottom says large factory as the wheels to grind the pontil were very costly and small shops could not afford them.

    Thanks retro. I appreciate your feedback.

    The glass is so delicate that I am suprised someone was able to polish the bottom without shattering the glass. I was glad to get four of them.
