These lovelies have a green cut to clear design of woods and a pond with intaglio cut ducks in various stages of flight. The green foot is engraved with a spray of flowers, stems and leaves which gives way to a facet cut stem. The grooves in the scalloped rim are offset cut, a fine detail seldom seen in art glass of the period. Made in the last quarter of the 19th century (I don't have a more exact date). They are each 9 in.tall, about 4 in. diameter, and 2 lb. 5 oz. Pictured in the book"Moser Glass: The Klabin Collection" by Gary D. Baldwin, pg. 17, plate 17. PROVENANCE: George Klabin Collection.
These are about the prettiest pieces I have in my modest collection. They could have been made by Daum, or Legras, oe Schneider, or Thomas Webb... the craftsmanship is exemplary.
