This is an under-appreciated line, if you ask me. What is known about this type of glass is that it was made by Harrach, and marketed by both Harrach and Moser. (see Moser, 1857-1997, published by the factory) It dates to around 1885-1890 (before Moser had their own glass works). Other houses also made glass of this type, but these are generally thinner walled, crudely decorated, and the white inclusions are more closely akin to what we would call spatter glass. The grouping shown here includes what I suspect are two Moser (miniature and ewer) and two Harrach (the two taller pieces). Lemon agate and yellow onyx have been mentioned as possible inspirations for this glass.

    Someone also mentioned lemon agate, which is possible, although the striations in that are pretty clearly delineated.

    Hello, old post, hope you don't mind my adding to it at this point. Recently found 2 similar glass miniature jugs in yellow and white glass. One with a gold Goldberg type of decorative band, and one with the Moser orange tone applied enamel. Goldberg decorated Moser glass too? regards, lisa

    Hi Warren. Thanks for posting these. I also have two miniature vases in yellow & white with decoration i got ages ago when starting out & not seen for ages. Seeing yours has made me want to study them again but they're in a box somewhere among other boxes. When i find them I'll post them, maybe you can help ID them for me? I liked them but they're very small & i started preferring bigger glass :)
