Outstanding and rare cut, acid etched and enameled glass tumbler.

Made 19th century.

Believed to be French.

5 1/8inches high.

Tumbler is cut in regular geometric pattern with elongated facets in a band around the bottom, narrow part of the glass.

Upper rim is gilded.

The main decoration consists of a deeply etched, enameled and gilded pattern.

Cobalt blue with some burgundy / red enamel and lots of gilding.

The central theme is pairs of mirror-image gryphons / swans separated by scrolling foliage.

The quality of this work is without parallel.

Condition is very good except for negligible wear to gilding on rim.
