I am hoping to identify this vase. I thought perhaps it was Moser. Does anyone have comments? It measures 8 1/2" in height and is beautifully enamel painted and blown with a slightly indented pontil on the base. Some of the gold trim is worn around the base and neck. Any assistance is much appreciated!

    Hi from Sydney Australia!
    This looks nice. No trace of an enamel number?
    One name that immediately came to my mid was Fritz Heckert
    Fritz Heckert - Warmbrunn, Silesia - c. 1866 - 1923
    But have a look around this great Bohemian Glass site!
    And try this:
    "Initially started as a refinery of mirrors and chandelier parts, they quickly transitioned to enameling glass blanks from nearby Josephinenhütte. Initially Heckert enameled replicas of 17th & 18th century historical glass. In 1889 he started his own glass furnace, and was producing iridescent glass that was decorated with Art Nouveau decors."

    Fritz Heckert died in 1890, but the glass works continued to be run by his family. In 1923 Heckert was merged with Josephinenhütte.

    She looks like the old movie star Robert Mitchum in the face. It's kinda funny. But I do love this vase too.

    I agree with vetraio50. As a 30+ year Heckert collector (of their Historismus series), this does look like the work of Fritz Heckert Kunstglas Industrie. The decoration is very similar to the work of Heckert designer Dr. Willy Meitzen.

    However, it was Josephinenhütte that was located in Warmbrunn. Heckert was located in the neighboring village of Petersdorf.

    The Heckert history provided is also incorrect (and is too lengthy to provide here).
