this is a beautiful piece of Bohemian glass/crystal with a lot of gilding and a lovely painting of historical working people. 9″ tall and 5″ in diameter.
Bohemia, currently a part of the Czech Republic, became famous for its beautiful and colourful glass during the renaissance . The history of Bohemian glass started with the abundant natural resources found in the countryside. Bohemian glass-workers discovered potash combined with chalk created a clear colourless glass that was more stable than glass from Italy. In the 16th century the term Bohemian crystal was used for the first time to distinguish its qualities from glass made elsewhere.
