Holy cow look at the amount of work that went into this!!! About 160 years old and I think in extremely nice displayable condition. Put it in the case under the lights I say!It is deceiving as its not super bright or just put your eyes out with gold.... But put it in hand, with good light and start admiring the quality and amount of work in this piece.
Cased white enamel/glass over clear which was then cut, polished and paneled from top to bottom. I did not count exactly, but there are about 100 faceted little windows.... Over 100I counted rows and how many around.... After cutting and faceting each panel they are then decorated with animals or flowers which were then each hand gilt(except the very bottom row) and the gilt is in overall very fine shape as photographed.
Does seem to have a period hunting or black forest motif with dogs, birds and hares/rabbits. Star cut and engraved base. I believe the top rim has a very slight bevel to probably reduce a small chip, again as shown. Overall about 5 5/8" tall and 3 1/2" diameter.There appear to be some lines, a bubble or two, and other unique internal "flaws" if scrutinized and as they are shown. There is some rubbing to the gilt as this isnt new, but these are still quite detailed in most of the panels.
