This gem was probably made in Bohemia or /Germany around 1830 .
The body is made from a thin layer of clear glass covered in a thicker layer of Gold Ruby glass ( glass that has gold in it which makes it red ) .
The whole flask has been hand cut ( on a wheel ) creating gem like facets of deep rich ruby colour .
Amazingly good condition .
When made this was an expensive object .
10 3/4 " high .
Though not Art Glass I could not find a category to fit this in .
Antique glass would be good ...
