A pair of beautiful crackle-glass vases, made by Bohemian master, Ludwig Moser, around 1890. The vases are decorated with superb enameling of ocean-themed motif. Each vase is 11 3/4 inches (30 cm) tall and 5 inches (12,5 cm) wide at its widest. One vase is in excellent condition; the other has a 2-inch line (the line cannot be felt with fingertips from either the inside or outside) at its rim that could either have occurred in production (lines sometimes do develop when a hot glass object is dipped in cold water to give it the crackle effect) or have occurred later (see picture). The vases have the numbers, '4' on their bottoms. Though unsigned, these are guaranteed to have been made by Moser. Such crackle-glass, ocean-themed vases are shown in Plate 106, page 77, in Baldwin & Carno's book, 'Moser - Artistry in Glass 1857-1938' (shown in last picture here for your convenience)
