Reasonable offers are invited for this wonderful French 1930s Art Deco bowl...
It was press moulded into a one piece mould,using quality crystal, before then being matt satin-frosted to its outer surface, by one of the most accomplished of all glass working areas within France of its era.
It has a moulded mark: FRANCE to its base.
There are no makers marks, however the pattern is Sunflower/Dahlia and it was produced at Choisy-le-Roi, for Etling. Two names which are synonymous to historical quality of superior achievement and design.
The interior of the bowl is smooth. Only the exterior has been pattern moulded to form a single sunflower bloom. Three of the sunflower petals have been thoughtfully designed and moulded to provide feet for the bowl. All three of these feet show signs of wear due to age,which is not uncommon and does not detract.
The bowl rings-like-bell and is in excellent condition with no rim chips etc. It is also a substantially made item with crisply defined mouldings and has a good 0.5 inch wall thickness of quality crystal, as one would expect from inarguably the very best glass producing area of France of its era.
The bowl has one small manufacturing internal bubble as is so often the case with such items. It does not detract and as my photographs show and mentioned for accuracy.
Please note that these bowls are becoming scarce & desirable. I have been reliably informed, that an example such as this sold on a major online auction for £275 ($428 USD) in June 2012. I mention this purely to remind you again of the significance of glass such as this. It's a gem of a piece for your collection and a very wise investment indeed at this current offer price...
