    I don't know a thing about Bohemian Glass (which I am guessing that this is). This beautiful piece has handpainted flowers, gilting and engraving. The jar stands 4 7/8 inches to the sides and about 8 inches to the top of the finial when the lid is on. The base has a diameter of 3 inches and the jar's opening is 3 1/8 inches in diameter. I would love to know more about it please. Thank you.

      Wow, this has really beautiful enamel work; it is so interesting to see it has engraving on the other side, too! I do think it is definitely Bohemian and I believe an older piece, perhaps c.1900?

      Nice piece. Painting maybe by someone from the Pfohl family (Alexander Sr. or Jr. or Brigitte?) - Nový Bor (Haida).

      Thanks for the hint.

      I did receive this information from a specialist in glass and British ceramics at
      Bonhams in London:

      ".......it does indeed look to be the work of Alexander Pfohl Jr from the 1920s. I have been unable to find this exact model in any of my books, but this is very much in the style of Pfohl produced at the Josephine Glassworks in Czechoslovakia. The style in which the rose on the cover is painted is virtually identical to those painted by Pfohl so I have no issue with such an attribution. He usually painted flowers against a black ground, and it is unusual to find engraved decoration in combination with transparentmalerei (transparent enamel painting), so this is an unusual piece."

      I appreciate the hint that led me to this observation.
