Product Description

This superb display piece is in excellent condition.

Originating from Bohemia this vase is a genuinely old piece that would be at least 50 years old but possibly significantly older.

The unique design distinguishes the piece as an Egermann vase made in Bohemia in the tradition of Friedrich Egermann, who invented the process to create the ruby glass used on these pieces in the 1830's. The technique was unique in the sense that it involved a complex chemical and physical process that involved imparting elements of copper into the surface of the glass at high temperature which would cause the glass to change colour to a dark ruby red. The only known way at that time to make red glass was using gold which was very expensive.  His invention was a real achievement, as the colour produced was a true, rich red and hence his glassware proved extremely popular. Such was his success that for many years he kept his formula a secret until his factory was broken into and his secret formula was stolen!

Egermann red coloured glass pieces are ornately engraved with baroque style motifs that cut through the red to the clear glass layer beneath. This particular piece features an very ornate border to the top featuring a bird, a castle and a deer. There are also deep cut panels to the glass. The beautiful large urn shape of the piece would make it a spectacular vessel for a very large flower arrangement or a highly decorative item in its own right. It would be ideal as a centre piece on a mantel piece or hall or entry table or sideboard.

The piece measures 27.3cm tall and 22.3cm in diameter at the rim. It is made from high quality thick glass that has a polished rim.

There are absolutely no chips or cracks and no clouding to the piece. There are some light scratches to the underside of the base from surface contact.

This piece can be posted Australia wide. Please contact us for a quote if required.
