    This stunning tumbler and finger bowl set are from Harrach. These examples are signed with what collectors call the "propeller" mark and a alpha-numeric signature. Each matching piece is blown of cased glass with oxblood red and opal white splatter mix, and is nicely complimented with hand painted enamels depicting, blue "Forget Me Not" flowers.

    Tumbler / Beaker 3-1/8" tall. Rim is 2-3/8" diameter and the base is 2-1/8" diameter.
    Finger Bowl is 3" tall. The rim is 4-3/8" diameter.
    Under Plate is 6" diameter.

    In the Phoenix Art Glass book, this oxblood decor has been considered as part of Phoenix production in a number of different shapes. The Phoenix Art Glass research was done according to the author, using "a systematic approach to identify Phoenix products, by grouping examples according to mold pattern, optic pattern and color effects." Please keep in mind, with very little factory documentation to offer, descriptions from trade literature were applied and created to come up with shapes and decors. The author explains, "The origin of the group is established through items of provence and unique descriptions and advertisements of Phoenix products in the trade literature." In my opinion, the authors method of research has stirred speculation rather than proof of Phoenix production when proven examples of Harrach have been discovered since the book was written back in 2004.

    This tumbler cup and a few other examples to follow are from my dear friend, who is a prolific art glass dealer. Zelda has been dedicated and graciously helpful to the Bohemian glass research community through the years. Thank you, Zelda for sharing your examples with me and the glass community.

    * This posting originally had way more comments and loves. For what ever reason CW took it upon themselves to hit the reset button. Must of had something to do with Welzebub and ScotVez harassing my post.
