    Acquired in a trade with a friend, this coffee server produced by Moser in a decor that was first produced in 1895, according to the book Moser 1857-1997, published by the factory (see last photo scan).

    Green glass, applied handle, matt crackled iridescence. Painted Arabic style inscription painted in blue and outlined in red. Marked in red enamel with the Prod. No. 4025/II, and the Decoration No. 1511. Also has a stamped mark GLASFABRIK KARLSBAD (see photos 2 and 3)

    The Moser book says the following:

    "The jug including the decoration appeared in ZK (design book) 1; there is also a goblet, production number 5158, with the same decoration. The vessel was produced in five different heights as prod. n. 5156/I-5156/H. From a set composed of a jug, bottle with stopper (prod. no. 5157), a goblet (prod. no. 5158), and container with lid (prod. no. 5159), all vessels decorated wit an applied spiral."

    Of relevance to this particular piece, the book continues:

    "The similar decoration n. 1511 was first used in 1895 on the vase series prod. nos. 3994-3999, imitating Arabic glass vessels."

    The production number of the coffee server is 4025/II, putting it closer to the original 1895 time frame. (If the first series was numbered 3994-3999, one could assume that series II began with production number 4000?) At any rate, it's a special piece with a provenance that I am proud to own!

      Very cool. I wonder what it says in Arabic? Coffee?

      It says "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine" :)
