Superb French Opalescent Glass ‘Shell’ Pattern Bowl & Tray Set by Sabino, Paris. c1930s


Just one of these two items is desirable and each piece was available to purchase as separates however as both of these pieces have been together since time of manufacture I am offering both the bowl & the tray as one fabulous set…

Each piece is signed in relief with moulded block capitals: SABINO PARIS, which indicates that they were reserved for the French market place only and not produced for export outside of France.

The ‘shell’ pattern bowls, trays & dishes by Sabino, are widely collected and desirable items as not only are they beautiful examples of Sabino, 1930s Art Deco opalescent glass, they also represent incredible value for investment… particularly at my current offer price.

The use of opalescent glass makes the design of these items very striking. The eight mussel shells which decorate each piece display much colour-depth due to the remarkable qualities of this glass type. All of the mouldings are to the underside of the glass, which when viewed from above, glisten & edged with white-light. Turn the glass over, and rich milky blues & purples can be observed and the true thickness of each mussel shell. The four larger shells upon each piece are just under 1" thick and it is also these shells which provide feet, to elevate the glass from a surface which in turn provides optimum light penetration from beneath. The results are a visual beauty. The four feet of the tray have also been wheel polished at time of manufacture to remove their topmost point so as to act like tiny `pads' to support its matching bowl on a prefect horizontal.

There are no chips, cracks, flea-bites or scratch marks to either piece of this set of and so their condition is pristine & mint. The top rims of each piece have also been finished by hand with wheel grinding and polishing… This is a quality set and so to avoid disappointment I would urge you not to let this opportunity pass you by…
