This is a beautiful work of art and is one of two of the same pattern examples currently available from my collection. Please note that there are differences between the two and so they are not a pair. This particular example uses `translucent glass' as opposed to having been matt-satin frosted. This listing is for one bowl only and described as follows:
At first glance both bowls also appear to be the same pattern as another that is currently available from my shop, Item number: JJ909 however closer inspection reveals subtle differences between them. The three mermaids upon this piece for example, have different body postures and hair styles. They have also been depicted swimming amongst trailing bubbles (rather than water-weed) and the centre of the bowl has a completely different pattern. Please also see my photographs.
Naiades or sirens are an incredible image when portrayed upon glass, and it is the skill of the mould maker who in this instance should be applauded. The positioning of the three mermaids and the various depths of glass, results in a piece which displays much movement & grace, whilst the translucency of the glass also allows the imagery to become almost life-like. Each and every facial feature and the feminine body tones have been captured with breath taking beauty upon this piece. Each siren has a different posture, as they `swim' head-to-tail within their glassy-water world.
The underside of the bowl has been matt-satin frosted to provide a luxurious finish to the glass, and the base rim raises the bowl from a surface thus protecting each of the mermaids from bruising or wear. Please study my photographs... It is a stunning portrayal using glass and is certainly a wise investment piece for the connoisseur.
CONDITION REPORT: There are no serious issues with this piece. It is in excellent condition throughout, save for the tiniest nick (no larger than a pink prick) to the outer edge of the base rim. The entire bowl is truly divine. This example also carries a moulded mark to its underside base: MADE IN FRANCE
