Stunning 1930's Art Deco Uranium Blue Glass Center Piece by Sowerby, England.

What an enchanting item of glass that this two part center piece is...

It was press-moulded by Sowerby, England during the 1930s and from moulds which were produced by some of the most accomplished of all Bohemian mould-makers of the period, then employed by Sowerby Glassworks.

The quality of this centre piece is superb and has been produced using a quality, scarce SKY-BLUE URANIUM glass which has then been satin frosted to all surfaces.

It is an exceptionally tactile piece and its small, petit size, makes it suitable to be displayed upon a mantle shelf or in a window recess for example, where this glass comes alive, by means of natural light and as can be seen by my photos, this remarkable glass is propelled into a beautiful new world, if lit by UV.

Blue Uranium glass is most desirable, as this center piece adequately displays. The pattern is also scarce and seldom seen outside of private hands.

The Lady has been modelled nude, but with modesty, as she clasps her flowing hair to her chest and a flowing chiffon dress enhances the figurative form of this wonderfully moulded glass female study.

She is sat upon a finely-detailed wooden log, which also provides a posy-flower-frog to provide ease of floral arrangements. Ten holes are provided for, none of which show any signs of damage and the lady is also in mint condition, as too is the pedestal bowl in which she fits.

The bowl itself is a wonderful item of its own. It has been faultlessly moulded with square-cut diamond forms to its exterior underside and with good deep relief to provide beautiful optic effects. The scalloped edge of the bowl and the pedestal round base makes a very befitting bowl for the lady, as I am sure that you will agree.

This is a beautiful two piece center piece and as is shown, has the ability to be displayed, upside down, to give flexibility of how & wherever she is placed.
