Overall in very good condition. Offered en suite with the following lot, the goblet displays a rich palette of semi-transparent yellow, vibrant chartreuse, pink-red and cool deep green decoration over a clear ground. The decoration throughout the coupe and foot is masterfully articulated in an abstract foliage motif. The glass with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The rim with some extremely minor toolmarks inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The glass with some scattered extremely minor and fine surface scratches consistent with age and gentle handling. An extremely elegant object that is impressively scaled and the perfect complement to lot 537, presenting an exciting opportunity to acquire two closely related early works by the firm.
