Almost certainly made as an exhibition piece, this monumental Moser ruby glass vase boasts a gilt-accented design of textured oak leaves and flowers, all enclosed by textured bands of jeweled gilding. Formed in a classical urn shape in Moser's signature ruby glass, this vase is certainly one of Moser's rarest and most outstanding pieces.

Circa 1885

22" high

Encouraged by the Austro-Hungarian Governments, Ludvik Moser quickly excelled as a glass artist while serving an apprenticeship under accomplished artist O.J. Mattoni. Through working with the Health Spa at Karlsbad, producing and decorating glassware in which to serve the healing waters found at the spa, Moser quickly acquired a following and demand for his work. By 1857, Moser was able to open his own shop full of bright, glistening chandeliers and mirrors, which further illuminated his glass creations. Moser quickly acquired a noble clientele and began displaying his work at exhibitions around the world. Some of his well known patrons include Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, King Faisal of Saudi Arabia, Pope Pius XI, and King Farouk of Egypt.
