Footed winge glass

The slightly flattened, hemispherical cup is sup-ported by a hollow baluster stem that stands on a short foot, conically rising in the centre. There is an opaque white line of spots half centimetre below the top rim, with a lambrequin-like row of scales shaped of thin, scratched gold foil below. The semicircular contours of the scales are emphasized by opaque white spots. In the centre of the scales there are green spots, surmounted by a row of blue and red spots. The form and the decoration of the object follows the traditions of Renaissance Baroque glass from Venice-Murano it was probably a part of a set, as it is proved by the bottle with identical decoration, also in the collection of the Budapest Museum of Applied Arts (Inv.No. 1035).
