Moser Signed Art Nouveau Enameled Banjo Vase c. Incredible signed Moser banjo vase - features a base amber glass, with mottled red and white glass, very much in the order of what Legras and Earnest Baptiste Léveillé in Paris were making, and it very well could be their glass, as Moser didn't have their own furnace/glassworks until around 1893. Prior to that, their glass was made by other glassworks, and decorated by the master decorating shop at Moser. The stoppered banjo vase is optically ribbed, with an applied pedestal disc foot, and a wonderful fancy glass applied decorative handle.
Even the stopper, which features a flat disc top, matches the form of the vase. The foot has a polished pontil.
Featuring a wonderful Japanese art nouveau influenced high relief enameled scene with a tree branch with five large leaves, each done in different colors with high relief enamels, and gold gilt, the branch extends across the vase, and has beautiful blossoming flowers done in high relief purple and pink enamels, with gold gilt branches and highlights. Extremely top quality enameling, the gold is as perfect as the day it was made, an absolutely stunning premium example of signed Moser art glass! In their book "Moser 1857 - 1997" edited by Jan Merg.
