Bohemian Cranberry Glass


As I have collected cranberry glass over the years I have tried to acquire various styles of this beautiful art glass.


As I look at my collection now I see a large number of cruets.


Cruets are fun to collect because there are so many beautiful shapes and patterns “in the glass” or as in this case “on the glass”.


Each stopper is unique to the cruet and even they vary in shapes and styles.


This cruet was made in the Czech Republic and I estimate it to be about 50 years old
.

This type of glass is known as “Bohemian”.  This Bohemian cruet was hand blown, painted with gold, and then hand decorated with raised enameled flowers. 


Thank you for taking the time to take a peek at my cranberry “eye candy” today.

Make the most of your Wednesday!

Hello, you beautiful piece of collection! Years if they made that piece was really worth preserving, because it looks like a piece able to fit in with contemporary times, beautiful piece, its details and colors intact. Rose Marie blessings

So jealous, when we lived in new england collected a bit of cranberry glass that was too fragile to travel, always delighted to see how other's treasure their collections
