Provenance Private collection, Vienna
The glass presents a series of decorations painted with the technique called "Schwarzlotmalerei" or simply "Schwarzlot", that is to say a particular painting chiaroscuro obtained with lead oxides; In this technique, prevalent mainly in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, one of the artists who brought him to high levels was Ignaz Preissler (Šumava, 1676 - Kronstadt, 1741), a painter who specialize done directly on painting on transparent glass. Our glass, executed in the nineteenth century, draws inspiration directly from his creations, both for the technique and the theme. It is a precious and rare object given the small number of specimens available on the market and therefore sought by collectors.
In excellent state of conservation and without restorations, very slight wear of the paints
We take care of the organization in a professional and safe transport.
