    Examples of this rare glass are shown in the first Truitt Bohemian Glass book in the Harrach section where an almost identical example is shown on page 62. The Harrach Museum has a few examples of Harrach Copper Glass in their depository and on display in the museum, and of course PGM has a few examples in their incredible and ever changing collection. High quality hand blown glass, with applied handles and oval disc base. Base has a polished pontil, and they measure approximately

    The Truitt's called this "Gold Adventurine" which is their moniker, not the factory name. As much as I admire the Truitt's and their pioneering work on Bohemian glass research., I would call these something entirely different. Interestingly Harrach strove to produce various examples of metal in glass, effectively making the glass take on the appearance of bronze, copper, gold, silver, etc. See the last photo for the original factory design book drawing of the vases (factory archives).

      Beautiful vase. This is not Astralith (Goldglas)? "Mergl" book picture no. 295?
      I think I have a similar vase - see:
