EMLEK Encased Bottle
A terrific polychrome decorated “basket weave” over a 19th C forest green blown glass bottle with an applied woven handle. The colors include yellow, blue, brown, black, red, violet, white and others. Overall, it has a very nice aged patina surface and mello contrasts. The name EMLEK and the dates “1898 – 1857″ are woven into the design. The design probably identifies a person (EMLEK) and perhaps the death and birth dates, or a place name and some significant dates for it. It is likely of Hungarian origin. The bottle is 11 1/5” tall. We do not know exactly what the weaving material is, but it is not a basket plant material. A nice piece of folk art. From a Florida estate.
