I've been nervous all week waiting for this to arrive - in one piece!
Another buy from our Gallic friends across the Channel and my first Harrach Aesthetic period vase. It is in exceptional condition with only minor wear to the rim gilding. A rich amethyst glass with 3 lizard or salamander legs in yellow/amber glass with enameled pale blue and white dots. Whimsical beetle and worm, oak leaves, acorns and other foliage, sorry that's as far as my botanical knowledge stretches.
I didn't ID this all by myself although I thought it either Moser or Harrach. Alisa at the gildedcurio identified it positively as Harrach. So.... the collection grows - I now have more than 3 Harrach pieces, so that must make me a collector of Harrach I guess...??
