Bohemian Cobalt Glass Goblet
Description: This hand made cobalt glass goblet is almost certainly Bohemian. The style goes back 150 years or so, but it has also been made since. Quality and wear suggest this one is certainly not a youngster, at least back to the late 19th century. It features enamel decoration in an oak-leaf pattern. As far as I can tell, the goblet is made in one piece since there's no sign of a wafer or seam between the bowl and base. The base is solid, giving a good balance to avoid knocking the glass over easily. The pontil is fully polished, and the height is about 5 3/4".
Dimensions: Height is about ".
Condition: excellent with no damage and no repairs There is the expected wear on the gold around the rim, but the rest of the decoration is also excellent. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.
Price: $125 plus shipping and insurance.
Shipping: $8.25 for Priority Mail and insurance within the US.
International shipping rates by request.
