The fabulous glass center pieces produced by Walther & Sohnne during the middle of the 20th century, easily equal (and at most times outshine) any other such glass of its period by any maker.
August Walther established his glass works in c1888 at Ottendorf-Okilla, Dresden, Germany. Later producing the most outstanding Art Deco,quality moulded glass designs and one beautiful example for your collection, is this stunning center piece: Lilli/Undine
This three component item has been produced from golden-amber glass, which in parts has been satin frosted as are shown. All three pieces are in excellent condition, save for a moulding error on the flower posy frog, in which Lilli stands. It does not detract from this marvellous centre piece at all, as is again evident with my photographs.
The glass posy frogs by Walther & Sohnne, are in the main interchangeable, the same size and their design being used for a whole variety of central figures.
Walther glass Bowls, were also interchangeable to suit preference of shape or style however some were solely produced for their central figurative part only. Pelikan being an example (as is also currently listed in my shop) and so too the bowl for this Lilli/Undine center piece. The bowl was designed specifically for this lady type and is pattern named: Breslau. A fabulous bowl-type, which has been moulded to its exterior with intaglio ribs, each interposed with either clear amber or satin frosted.
The inner base is also moulded with a raised rim to accommodate the flower frog and then the lady and its scalloped edge and its mushroom form makes a wonderful compliment to the central components. No small wonder then, that Walther designed and produced this bowl specifically for the purpose.
Undine is by no means a coincidental name by Walther & Sohnne
She is one of a class of fabled female water spirits, which is something that the designers of this glass would have recognised, known and not overlooked, as this center piece is intended as a water feature display in which to place floral arrangements. Undine has been represented here in this wonderful glass by Walther & Sohnne, from fable into Lilli.
...a Beautiful Art Deco Lady...
She has been exquisitely moulded as stepping towards the viewer and in her hands,she holds a single rose and then in her other hand a garland. Each executed in finite detail as one would expect by the remarkable works of Walther and Sohnne.
Her facial features, her feminine muscle tones & her costume drapery, all have been moulded with outstanding levels of glass artistry. Upon closer inspection, even her fingernails have been stylized as also are her strands of hair & a headband moulded with minute roses.
