I was delighted to come across this wonderful pair of Harrach 1860’s comports a little while ago…I love the décor and of course the snakes..their my first real! snakes..
Decor is known as EISGLAS (ice glass)… colourless crackle glass, mould blown.. and the snakes are a pretty pink/red glass and polished gold to highlight the snakes markings.
I was really surprised at the size of them when I unpacked them, even though it did say on the auction, they are huge, and can handle quite a bit of fruit in them…can’t wait till Christmas to fill them with fruit in one and! nuts in the other, will look lovely together at each end of the table.
In excellent condition with a little wear to the gilding..and standing....23 cm x 23 cm in diameter..or... 9 x 9 inches.
Thank you for looking.
