Offered is this beautifully enameled Bohemian glass vase. The vase is decorated with gold-gilt floral motif. The highlight of the vase is the ornately hand-painted floral medallion that was applied to the glass-body. The vase is a little over 10 inches (25 cm) tall. Except for some roughness in a couple of spots on the base-rim (see second-last picture), it is in very good condition (there is the expected, age-appropriate wear to the gold gilt). Though unsigned (it is numbered in white enamel, '3.' - see last picture), the quality of the painting would highly suggest that it was done by either a Moser decorator or by Alexander Pfohl, Sr. The vase fluoresces a gentle-green when exposed to black-light: so the glass blank is definitely of Bohemian origin.
