One of my favorite items, but I'm not 100% certain of the attribution. I sent photos to Moser Karlsbad, but they said it was not their work. A glass collector friend told me she thinks it is by Goldberg, and had a photo of a cobalt vase from a book, with some similarities, to back it up.
The vase is a very heavy cobalt crystal with walls about 1/4" thick. It is cut, etched, enameled, and gilded. There are four panels with colorful birds... the peacock, a parrott, a hummingbird, and a bird of paradise. About 7" tall. The base is faceted, hexagonal, and completely flat. Suggestions or additional attibution documentation would be greatly appreciated!
