Both the vase on the left, the compote in the
center
 and the jeweled chalice on the right

were made in Bohemia
circa 1860-90. The chalice is unusual
because of the use of applied glass
"jewels" which are rare to find.
Bohemian silvered mercury glass was
made from soda-lime glass which contains no
lead, and is relatively
more light weight when compared to the flint
lead glass of English & American items.
