    I've had this biscuit barrel for awhile and just recently found this matching Claret Jug at auction. The metal work is marked WMF. My first thought was the glass is Legras and Cie but it was suggested on a French Art Glass group that is might be bohemian, possibly Harrach. My searching has found a very similar design by Moser, but nothing definitive. Any ideas?

    Addendum: I've added a photo of the line drawing from the Hosch catalog (1906-1912) that looks very similar my pieces. I think I'm getting closer.

      You would think, but WMF did the metal work for French glass makers too. That's why I'm having such a difficult time nailing it down.

      I am leaning towards french art glass. If it were bohemuan, I think it would have a little different pattern. But this is only my opinion. LOVE IT

      Hey John, check out Chris Cope's, Goldberg vase... It's obvious it's not a match, but the idea is to see another example of a Bohemian vase with a HP Iris. Also, please be sure to check out the other Goldberg examples Kevin shared from comment #2.
