Vintage Signed Sabino Hibou Owl –Opalescent Glass France
This exquisite piece measures 5" x 2 ½" and is in MINT condition- no chips, cracks, flea bites etc. It is signed under the sticker which I did not remove but you can see the signature is under the sticker. For those that collect Sabino nothing more needs to be said but it you are thinking about starting here is a little background: More than half a century has passed since the production of this style of glass was at its peak. During the twenties and thirties there had been a large group of artificers of glass, among them Rene Lalique, Sabino, Etling, Hunebelle, D'Avesn, Verlys and Jobling. Of these, two emerged as the most prolific and best- Lalique and Sabino. With the onset of the second world war, there were great changes in the techniques of glass production. As the costs of hand produced work escalated, this beautiful glass became a rare part of history and the preserve of collectors.
