Primary Description: 
Colorless, bubbly glass with green hue; blown, gilded, enameled. Tazza with uneven hemispherical bowl, in one piece blown with hollow, pedestal foot. Base of bowl drawn hemispherically into hollow stem. Foot with hollow knop and hollow edge, and many bubbles of various sizes and shapes. Traces of pontil mark below knop. The center of the bowl is sunken into the pedestal foot as a hemispherical hollow. Inside bowl towards its base, three enameled ornaments, each consisting of four white and blue scrolls, with triangular fillings in red and yellow inbetween. Above, and painted on the outside, a band with borders consisting of white dots and red and blue lines, enclosing six oblong ornaments of white and blue scrolls. The six fields inbetween were originally filled with small rectangular gold leafs that were applied prior to the enameling and scratched with the letters: “IE SV IS A VO VS” (“Je suis à vous”). The “A” shows a v-shaped middle stroke. The gold has since been rubbed off and the letters are barely visible anymore. On the knop of the foot, s-shaped scrolls and dots in white enamel.
