Wild Pansy (Viola arvensis).

A Bohemian Zwischengoldglas flared beaker,

of facetted tapered bucket form the base enclosing an single enamelled Pansy flower on a gilt ground, the facets mirroring the image to form a ring of similar motifs

circa 1860

3in (7.5 cm) high approx.

In the ' Language of Flowers' a Pansy flower represents 'Think of Me'

 

Zwischengoldglas is a technique where thin layers of gold foil are trapped in a double walled glass vessel. The design reveals itself once the glass is empty. Implying that when the drinker has finished the message can be found from the giver, 'Think of Me'
