A tall and striking Bohemian art glass vase, dating circa 1900-1905. The ribbed, green glass vessel was mould-blown and includes a starburst pattern on the base. The hand painted gold work decoration features an Art Nouveau / Jugendstil whiplash pattern with leafy accents outlined in raised, ivory-colored enamel. 17 red cabochon "jewels" of graduating size form a striking, Secessionist / Art Nouveau style design on the front of the vessel. The vase is 15 in. H. and in very good condition with some spots of wear and losses to the gold accents, particularly at the rim. In addition to the moulded starburst on the base, the number "2." was applied by hand in gold. Colorful European glassware reached the peak of its popularity for export during the last quarter of the 19th century. A number of German and Austro-Hungarian (Bohemian and Czech) glassmakers including Josef Riedel, Moser, Loetz, Harrach, Poschinger, and Kralik decorated their designs with gold work and hand-painted enamels, echoing the decor scheme of this vase.
