  • The unique 70 cm tall Menuet vase has both floral ornamentation painted with coloured enamels and gold and on the front there is a hand-painted couple of a young man and a girl in Renaissance clothing. The vase’s surface is decorated with twigs with oak leaves and acorn reliefs glued on between which are insect motifs. The vase is an exact replica of a Moser Glassworks vase made in 1885 and one historical item is stored in the Passauer Glasmuseum.
