* Please kindly note that since listing this piece, important records have recently surfaced which substantiate that 'Arrers' was a registered name used by André Delatte, who from c1919 operated his own glassworks in Jarville near Nancy, France. Height of production was during the mid-1920s. Delatte ceased all production in 1938 *
Little is known about this French Art Deco glass designer or its maker, as there are no catalogues or records which can document. There is also debate as to the correct spelling of the name: Arrers, Auraux or Avers. I tend towards it being Avers, for this is a known French Surname,however keeping with convention I will relate this glass to Arrers.
The confusion exists due to the moulded maker mark which appears on these items of glass. Moulded in script, it can be difficult to confirm the correct spelling or pronunciation of the name, or whether or not it refers to a person or a factory, however it is considered that Arrers, was a small independent glass-worker or glass factory in France, which were inspired by the lucrative works of: Lalique; Sabino; Verlys;, Etling and others. Arrers, like so many casualties within the arts, just simply fell into obscurity taking their history with them.
It is also recognised however that Arrers used glass moulds produced by Frankenhausen.
Frankenhausen, were without doubt the best mould makers that the world has known in the history of glass. Making most of the moulds for Lalique and Sabino for example, during the early to mid 1900's.
The quality of Arrers glass is of the same high standard as their/his better known competitors. The glass has crisply defined mouldings and the quality of crystal used is also top class.
The glass is most usually signed in moulded relief as is this gorgeous example. "Arrers (Avers) MADE IN FRANCE"
It is also known within the field of collectors as being pattern named "Hazel Nuts & Leaves." It is a wonderful French Art Deco glass bowl and has been beautifully designed & produced.
Foliage & hazelnuts predominate the design,all of which has been moulded to the base of the bowl. The interior is smooth. Clusters of hazelnuts also form the feet of the bowl and the entire underside is matt-frosted.
For your appraisal, I am also offering an entire 13 piece set of one same large bowl & six serving dishes of this incredible pattern, in opalescent glass. You may wish to view the set which is currently listed separately here in my shop so as to make comparison: Item Id No. JJ1129.
Very few pattern-types are recorded by Arrers, and each are exceptional in terms of quality decorative display items or for use.
This bowl is free of any damage, is a wise investment piece for your collection and the size dimensions are as follow:
Diameter: 9.5 inches Height/depth: 1.5 inches Postage weight: 2k
