Rare 1780's Milchglas Henkelvase from Thüringen Germany Bohemia.  The vase is milk glass with applied opaline scroll handles and an applied light blue glass foot.  Both sides of the vase have a profusion of hand painted enameled flowers.  An almost identical 18th Century vase is shown in the book; "Das Bohmische Glas",  page 67 -see pics.
This vase is in incredible condition for 280 years old.   The handles are intact.  There are just a few spots of missing paint - see pics.  And there are imperfections original to the manufacture of the vase:  annealing marks - see pic, tiny inclusions, dark ash on the top rim, an uneven and crudely applied foot, and a very rough pontil.  There is also a small potstone caught in the area between the vase and the applied foot which has caused a stress crack in the foot - see pics.  
This rare vase is a wonderful addition to any antique glass, Milk Glass, Art Glass, or Bohemian Glass collection
Size:  top 3" diameter;   7 5/8" high
Shipping:  This vase will be shipped double boxed so it should travel safely.  Insurance is included in shipping.    
Item ID:  4687
