I just adore this vintage Gablonz glass facetted cabochon. The photo really doesn't capture its beauty and sparkle.
It dates from the 1920's / '30s and is worked in a beautiful emerald green. The floral lampwork motifs are flat, flush with the surface of the cab, with a gorgeous spray of flowers in pink, white, blue and yellow and a sparkly goldstone flower stem.
The back of the cab is moulded into facets which shine the light beautifully through the floral face.
This cab is in excellent condition - it measures 22 x 16 mm. It would be a welcome addition to any collection of Czech / Bohemian glass. Or why not recycle it into a new peice of jewellery? Items like this are too good to sit in a drawer unloved!
I've added another little vintage teardrop facetted glass cab too, in Montana blue
