    This large Harrach vase stands impressive 40x15 cm. It is executed by using the special Harrach 'Malachit' glass and is divided into 'Gothic' windows by six gilded archs, that are themselves accentuated by centered lines of applied glass perls. A simplified sketch of this vase is known from one of the earliest Harrach pattern books 'PN 618 in AH 288 Vasen' 1860. This vase was shown at the great London exhibition in 1862, as could be seen from photo 4 showing a detail of an illustration in the 'London News' 1862, page 670. The last two photos - including comment - are taken from the excellent monograph 'From Neuwelt to the whole World', Ed. Jan Mergl 2012, and more details may be found there on pages 192-197.

      Stupendous find, Kai! I love it for several reasons, least of which is that it is so well documented and gives us a definitive view of what Harrach malachit looks like.
