    Another big Bohemian bird vase I could not resist .
    The detail is better than most one cones across though a little heavy on the foliage for todays tastes.

    On a beige- ish coloured milk glass ground the birds on rose stems and butterfly are set in a forested scene .
    The vase could be by Harrach but I am leaning on a Harrach blank decorated by Julius Mühlhaus & Co .
    any other thoughts???

      Not all bird-vases are made by Harrach. The painting and the opaque-grey (Royalgrau) glass definitely suggest, that this vase was made by F. Heckert ~1890 after a design by Otto Jummel. You may compare your Vase, especially the painting of the flowers, eg with the fotos of S. Zelasko "Fritz Heckert" pages 83 and 174.
