Presented for your considerationisthis important HARRACH Glass decanter. A very similar piece is in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and is pictured in the new Harrach Glass reference book by Jan Mergl (page 168, plate 195). The design was produced about 1860 primarily for export to the Near East and India. It features diamond point cut glass in leaf-shaped ovals, beautiful hand painted floral and scrolls motifs. The four medallions are decorated with colorful bouquets. Bands of cranberry complete the design. This piece measures 13 1/4" to the top of the peaked stopper and 4 1/4" across at the body. The stopper is marked "15." and the bottom of the decanter is "11.". This very special piece is in very good estate condition. There are a few minor flaws--a bit of roughnessunder the topedge of the stopper, a small chip on the ring below the neck on the reverse side and another on the handle. I have included a photo of the last for your evaluation and can send others if you would like to see them. This fine museum quality Harrach Glass decanter is worthy of any serious collection. It is offered with a reasonable reserve so please don't hesitate to offer.The cost of U.S. insured shipping and very careful packing is included with your winning offer.
