Water Pitcher (Austro-Hungarian Empire (Klostermühle))
Massanetz’s water pitcher is of blown glass with applied handles. The surface is decorated with black-pen painting and gold decoration, a technique refined in Steinschönau, in northern Bohemia. The intricate, lace-inspired design radiates symmetrically from the middle of the body, creating a kaleidoscope of pattern and detail.
