175 Superb Moser 'Oroplastic' Gilded Greek Decorated Sweet Box

A beautiful example of the Ludwig Moser "Oroplastic" glass etching technique sometimes wrongly termed 'cameo glass'. The stunning cobalt blue crystal glass has been acid etched with a Classical Greek motif of Pan with his pipes seducing a Maiden. The motif has the raised details highlighted in gilding. Further gilding accentuates the rim and facets of the sides of the lid and the base of the box. The box is an unusually large size created as a sweet box rather than the more normal powder box. Circa 1916
