This is an under-appreciated line, if you ask me. What is known about this type of glass is that it was made by Harrach, and marketed by both Harrach and Moser. (see Moser, 1857-1997, published by the factory) It dates to around 1885-1890 (before Moser had their own glass works). Other houses also made glass of this type, but these are generally thinner walled, crudely decorated, and the white inclusions are more closely akin to what we would call spatter glass. The grouping shown here includes what I suspect are two Moser (miniature and ewer) and two Harrach (the two taller pieces). Lemon agate and yellow onyx have been mentioned as possible inspirations for this glass.
