I just got this fantastic piece. I am thinking maybe Josephinenhuette..
It's three layers clear purple and white. the scene is three women by the sea with a large stake behind the central one. there is a woman in black behind them on the left who appears to be praying. probably signifying mourning. the girl on the right looks like a peasant. maybe she's the central woman's maid or servant and the woman in the middle looks as if she's supposed to be the focus of the image. There is a giant hook or anchor in front of them. I am just not sure what they are supposed to be harkening to. the best I can think of is the tale of Andromeda and the pissed off gods but andromeda was chained naked to a rock so it doesn't quite fit.
Anyone have any ideas as to what this story is supposed to be telling? is it a parable or something?
as to the glass itself. It's very high quality. I am guessing 1850-1870. If anyone has opinions on any aspect of this piece I'd love to hear them.
