The Art Deco glass produced by Stölzle, is Stölzle, at their artistic best and only time has now established them as a force to be reckoned with, for today's Art deco glass collector.
If you are unfamiliar with this factory, then I am sure that my current listings will go some way to promote Stölzle further.
I have watched their popularity grow over the years for their amazing contributions to Art deco glass designing and they are a company which I would recommend to "ANY" collector of Art deco glass...
If you admire Art Deco Glass, then please do not dismiss them. I repeat this throughout my listings of Stolzle glass: Do not dismiss this factory. You are looking at glass of incredible quality and increasing value in terms of investment.
Probably most instantly recognisable of all Stölzle Art Deco glass designs is the pattern as offered here...
... Their hallmark of discs, blobs (prunts) and angular Art Deco forms, instantly captures the eye.
To have moulded these items must have been a nightmare for the workers!
The various protrusions, as evident, would have undoubtedly "stuck" to their moulds and the annealing process would have meant more failure pieces, than commercially viable.
Very cleverly therefore that Stölzle, incorporated any moulding marks (as left or remaining) within the overall design of these centrepiece items.
When one studies these pattern styles, there are always three or four vertical lines to each piece. These are moulding lines and yet they still perform a major role in the overall pattern of each piece. Clever, eh?
This simply would not WORK upon most other quality moulded Art Deco glass. Lalique (to name but one) constantly strived to remove such marks, but with Stölzle, they ensured that any marks left would form design.
No need for them to grind & polish. Job done and fresh from the mould.
These vase types are not common items. Single vases are desirable objects and so this pair are particularly seldom found. Some of the vase types (and others by Stölzle) form together to make a two-piece center piece, such as the examples available here in my shops listings.
This incredible pair of vases are in mint condition, with no nasty chips, cracks, knocks or flea-bite fractures and are as crystal-crisp as the day they were produced. Just the normal age related wear to the feet is evident as with most, if not all, glass of its period and so cannot and should not be deemed as being damage.
The salmon-pink colour of this pair of vases is also of particular interest, for it is produced using Selenium, a non-metalic chemical element which rarely occurs in its elemental state in nature, but instead is obtained as a by-product in the refining of other elements.
It is the most important of all colouring agents used to produce this wonderful colour, and being a non-metalic element, it is free of selenate atoms, which gives the glass its beautiful colour variant.
It is the less common of all colours used by Stölzle and by most other glass factories of the period, which is quite unusual perhaps, as the exceptionally toxic uranium and or arsenic was a far more widely used colouring agent than Selenium.
You would find it a difficult task indeed to find ONE of these pink vases vase types, and in ANY colour can command upwards of $180 or more...
Following numerous requests, please do not ask me to split this pair, for they belong. Please also kindly note that I will be removing these vases from my shop during 2012 and so they shall no longer be available to purchase, as my not only does daughter have a keen eye for them, I kind of think of these vases also as being "Simply Gorgeous" and worth holding onto.
Heights: 8 inches Top diameters: 5 inches Postage weight: *2k 700gm *Postage discounts are available for this pair of vases to overseas outside or Europe.
