    This documented BERRY shaped vase is from Harrach for the American market. The vase is completely hollow with a polished pontil on the bottom of the vase. In brighter light, the berry vase begins at the top with a darker shade gradually fading to a lighter shade of cranberry. The applied leaves are green and the stem is of colourless glass. Only the berry shaped ball vase and applied stem have the Hobnail decor pattern. Last photo was taken in 2015 and is from the Passau Glass Museum in Germany. The entirety of the cabinet photo is Harrach, and reveals the exact match on the bottom row. My understanding is Jan Mergl, who edited the published works "From Neuwelt to the whole world : 300 years of Harrach" glass book, Mergl organized the Harrach cabinets at the PGM back in 2012, and many examples were pulled for the "300 Years of Harrach" exhibit in Prague so I would not doubt the authenticity of what is shown in this cabinet photo, as I am sure other examples will be easily identified.

    Measures 8-3/4" tall.
    The rim on the stem is 1-1/4" diameter.
    The low base is 3" diameter.
    5" wide at best.

      That card is a bit confusing. Row 3 is the Ice glass and Row 4 is Painted Glass, no ???
