Magnificent and rare Antique Bohemian-Cobalt Blue Mantle Vases with Gold Applied Enamel-Butterfly and Flowers Motif-Crimped Ruffle Edge-Circa. 1850's. They feature a very thin, deep Cobalt Blue Glass adorned with raised gold enamel Flowers and Butterfly. Very old, thin and fragile. The glass is very brittle and thin. Typical and inherent to the peiod.
The gold flowers and Butterfly are hand painted and raised slightly above the glass. The applied Gold enameled pattern and single crimp is so true to the period.
These beautiful vases have a deep and rough unfinished Pontil snip and a very small amount of wear on the gold that can be seen in the photographs. They have no other issues and are in beautiful condition considering their age. Close up Photography and studio lighting tell the story. Please Look carefully.
I was able to account for the vases being somewhere in the family since about 1890 and was told they belonged to my Great Grandmother, Circa 1870 to 1880. The family began coming to this country in the 1870's and 1880's from Austria after leaving Germany. These were in a family estate in Flint, MI and passed down to me about 1975.
Please feel free to contact the store with any questions or comments.
The vases measure: 9 1/2" Tall x 3 7/8" Wide at opening, having a base of: 3" Diameter.
