hand-painted enamel; crystal

The illustrations that are hand-painted on these glasses are copies of figures depicted in the “Wiener Veduten”, a collection of prints published around 1800 illustrating Viennese society. The prints became immensely popular; contemporary copies and a few rare originals can still be seen in Viennese homes and businesses today. The prints were published by Artaria, a music publishing company that was known for publishing over 300 of Haydn’s works, most of Mozart’s works, and works by Beethoven, Gluck, Boccherini and Clementi.
