Nothing says art nouveau like dragonflies! Silver overlay on jugendstil era glass can overwhelm the glass if it's done wrong, but the craftsmen at the Poschinger glass house were experts at incorporating decoration in a way that complements the glass (see the incredible piece posted by cogito a couple of weeks ago). A green cabachon in the body of the dragonfly adds a touch of elegance to this neat little cabinet piece.
