I've been meaning to do this for a while...get all my floriform glass together for a group photo.
In all there are 10 floriform Bohemian art glass vessels from the Art Nouveau era. Eight of them are the type that rest on a leafy or thorny footed base that supports a main stem. Flower shape, size, colour, & decor vary considerably, & I know from seeing other people's examples that there are many, many more variations.
The other two examples seen here are a bit different - central at the back is a floriform that stands on a single stemmed base, & at the front right, laid on it's side, is a truly odd specimen that is like a handled "mug" or tankard style floriform. I cannot imagine it being used to drink from though!
I do have one other floriform piece, much smaller & finer of form, in yellow vaseline glass. The design is so different to any of these that I believe it to be of English origin, not Bohemian.
These fanciful pieces are always a pleasure to find, & I hope to add a few more to the collection in the future!
