Antique moonflasks, also known as moon vases or lunar vases, are decorative glass vases that were popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. They are characterized by their elongated, oval shape and distinctive bulging center, which gives them the appearance of a full moon. Moonflasks were typically made of clear or colored glass and were used to display a single stem or a small arrangement of flowers. They were often made by skilled glassmakers and were highly prized for their beauty and craftsmanship. Moonflasks were popular during the Rococo and Neoclassical periods and were often decorated with ornate engravings or applied decorations. Today, antique moonflasks are highly sought after by collectors of antique glassware and are considered valuable pieces of decorative art.
