Bohemian Parcel Gilt and Enamelled Blue Overlay Glass Jug

$10,832.79

About

This beautiful glass jug (or ewer) was created in the late 19th century in Bohemia (modern-day Czech Republic). Antique Bohemian glass is prized for the exceptional quality of its craftsmanship and ornamentation. This jug will make a wonderful addition to a collection of antique drink- or tableware. The ewer is of typical form, with a shaped spout and waisted neck on an ovoid body which is fitted with a single handle and set on a splayed foot. With the exception of the handle which is left clear and parcel gilt, the jug is covered with a white and blue overlay. It is beautifully decorated with swirling gilt patterns and colourful enamel beads, imitating jewels and flowers. The neck, shoulders and body of the jug feature bands of cut rectangular panels, their clear centres ornamented with gilt foliate motifs and enamel 'jewels'. The jug's lower body has been cut with winding, sinuous foliate patterns which enclose beaded enamel bands and are edged with gilding. The foot of the jug features cut oval medallions, decorated with enamel beads.
