*Please kindly note that any areas of white in my photographs, have been caused by camera flash. This entire item is free of any damage*

Here for your collection is one of the most stunning examples of the incredible glass artistry, which were produced by the historically important German glassworks of the Art Deco period.

It is of course the work of Walther & Sohnne, a name of which demands attention, due to their glass items of remarkable & outstanding beauty and their achievements using press moulded glass techniques.

Walther & Sohnne, contributed the most amazing press-moulded glass, during the 1930s Art Deco period and beyond, and can be said to be the best of its kind.

This gorgeous example uses the desirable, Walther glass colour of uranium green. I can think of no other maker who achieved uranium green glass, of this quality, whenever it is lit with UV.

It is just one of several such items currently available here in my shop from my collection. I have also listed this same pattern using pink glass, and the even more desirable in Royal cobalt-blue, which of course you can compare too, by means of my photographs to make comparison.

It is the Walther & Sohnne documented pattern name of: Tafelaufsätze (Pelikan) and are not these two wonderfully stylized pelicans,so pleasing and captivating, no matter how or wherever they are displayed.

Pelikan,was one of the few center piece pattern types, which had its very own specific bowl designed for it, however the bowl pattern could be purchased separately and/or used for other center piece displays and what a magnificent bowl it is.

Please note the beauty of just the bowl itself, which has been crisply moulded with stylized sea-shells around the perimeter of its down-turned rim, to echo the same detailing of its central flower-frog component piece.

A further feature of this wonderful bowl type,is the addition of the three glass feet(please see my pink example for photos) which not only raises the bowl to provide optic effect, but also to display their own fabulously moulded glass design of Art Deco shape & form.

It is quite simply beautiful as is, however when coupled with its two central items of flower-frog and its moulded pair of pelicans everything comes together to provide elegance & style.

This is a large & impressive center piece by Walther & Sohnne but without being intrusive and just take a look how incredible this glass type is when lit with UV.

A simple UV light bulb can be purchased cheaply at any good electrical stores and so if you are unfamiliar with the incredible qualities that this can provide to uranium glass,please,just simply purchase one and watch this Bowl & its Pair of Pelicans come to life!

This incredible example is in fantastic condition. Each component is of exceptional quality for your collection. Not a blemish will you find, for none are evident.
