It isn't always you can date a piece of glass, accurately anyway...never! mind who actually made it, and I know those of you that love glass often come across that same problem, as I do... and understand how frustrating it can be .. sooo!! when you actually can.. how wonderful is it??...BUT!!!... when you see it documented in a book...well!!! that is very exciting and special...:-))
This a a wonderful very old Harrach weissglat (white glass) Malachit glass goblet/vase from 1862... and it is documented in the Harrach book, I have added the page for you to read, you also see some wonderful examples of this glass also in the Passau Museum.
This would be one! of the examples supplied to the ‘Franz Pelikan’s Nachflger Co’ between 13 of February & 18 0f November 1862.
It is in wonderful condition for it's age with not one chip just some light wear to the enamelling...
It stands...20cm or or just under 9 inches tall
