Antique Bohemian overlay and gilt green vase

This vase is a wonderful example of the exceptional quality and beauty of Bohemian glass. Bohemia was a historic region (today part of the Czech Republic) which was internationally renowned for its glassware. Antique Bohemian glass is now highly sought after and considered very collectable.
The vase features a bulbous body on a circular foot, with a trumpet neck and flared mouth. The vase has been crafted from green glass and decorated with a parcel gilt white overlay. The gilt designs take the form of stylised flowers, foliage, and scrolled vine trails.
