Description On the holder's front and opposing (handle) face, sinuous vines and blossoms in painted filigree enamel are raised over a stippled gilt background. The decoration in between consists of blossoms and raised spirals over a red ground. A row of white circles extends around the holder near its base. Its flaring foot differs in that the stylized leaves and blossoms are over a smooth rather than a stippled gilt surface. The holder's top edge is cut in wave and circular patterns. Vines and blossoms have been etched in the glass.
