These are a delightful set of knife rests which although are unsigned can be firmly attributed to Sabino, France., which at just £35 each represents outstanding value for this complete of set of six...
Each piece has been moulded using quality opalescent glass, and each example portrays a stylized ‘frog’ as its decorative feature. Knife rest patterns were hugely popular during the Art Deco period of the 1930s, and particularly in France, where numerous factories produced them in a wide variety of styles, from animals and birds and also fish for example, through to simple prisms and short lengths of uncolored crystal.
I have several sets by various makers currently available here in my shop, from 4 piece sets to sets of 10 or more, all of which are French Art Deco period items. It should be noted that Sabino knife rests were made available as single items, and that sets of two or more were purchased to suit individual customer requirements. It is also understood that this particular ‘frog’ pattern was designed by Kanu Naluy, an employee of Sabino, who was also responsible for several other knife-rest patterns… Just any one single piece by Kanu Naluy, can retail for as much as $70 for just one knife rest, and so this set of SIX represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a very wise investment at this current offer price.
One often forgets that glass such as this, was produced to be used as well for display purposes, and use them I have, in groups of threes as sturdy & appropriate supports for opalescent glass bowls for example. I have added a photograph to illustrate this, however “I am guilty” of using my glass to suit my own individual needs without any possibility of causing damage to a piece, and there is no reason at all why you should not do the same! I find it quite insane, to keep such items as beautiful as this, hidden away, and my own use of this set has displayed them beautifully & safely…
All six, are in pristine condition.
