Boasting extraordinary craftsmanship, this American Brilliant Period cut glass pitcher is an incredibly rare and beautifully executed piece of cut glass artistry. Crafted at the start of the twentieth century, this striking pitcher features a gorgeous and intricately rendered engraving of the French painter William Adolphe Bouguereau's popular work "The Wasps Nest", which was sold to a private collector in New York in 1892. Charming putti and hovering cupids surround a lovely young nude in this classical scene that epitomizes Bouguereau's idealized, classical compositions. While engravings of flowers, birds and animals were common at this time, it is incredibly rare to find a cut glass piece such as this one with an elaborate engraving depicting a prized painting. The base of this exceptional pitcher features a stunning carved hobstar, lending the piece a striking sense of light.
