Here for your delightis unarguably one of the most beautiful of all Art Deco moulded glass center piece figural displays, designed & produced as a two piece comport.
Its allure is undeniable. Its technical achievement is almost unsurpassed and it displays a quality and an appeal which is timeless.
Incredibly for a piece such as wonderful as this, the designer or its factory maker remains unknown. It is a noted pattern type of its period however its provenance is still as yet to be accurately established.
To mould the glass base as is, for example, is an accomplishment which could only ever be attained by a glass factory of major importance and total understanding of glass as a working medium.
Most, if not ALL, press moulded glass requires to be released quickly from its mould before the glass has cooled or solidified to its eventual state. In view of this, imagine if you will the complexity of skill required to ensure that no distortion or collapse occurs to any parts of this glass. The perfection of the round frame which encircles the lady central, is a phenomenal work of glass-art in its own right. It is perfection and of exceptional appeal when viewed from any angle.
Then what about the lady? She possesses gracefulness and as finite qualities of moulded features which can compare to any other factory of its period. Even that of Rene Lalique, Walther & Sohne or any other noted glass-works of importance of the Art Deco era. It is a two part pegged bowl center piece using uranium green glass which is quite simply, sublime.
EVERY Art Deco glass collection surely warrants & deserves this incredible, remarkable and desirable beauty of breath taking appeal, combined with quality and style of its period...
The development of these `pegged bowl' examples allowed for the gracefulness of the subject matter.
The only alternative would be a large flat disc of glass, to support the accompanying bowl. This would quite often interfere with the overall design of a piece and so the `pegged bowl' offers these wonderful figurative items to appear effortless as if only supporting the bowl, using their hands.
I would advise against displaying any of these pegged bowl examples in direct sunlight. During the heat of a day, the thickness of the glass peg can heat up sufficiently to cause the thinner glass of the `candle stick-type' holder, to crack. Caution and prevention is far better than cure!
Many of these wonderful items have suffered due to the above, however please do not imagine these items to be any more fragile than any other glass. Displayed appropriately and away from any direct heat source they are exceptionally stable, as were meant and intended.
I can add no more, save for the size and the condition of this spectacular example of historical glass...
My photographs will illustrate that this piece has received a repair, due to having been displayed as just mentioned. The repair is a good one, it is professional and stable and does not detract as displayed. This entire two part center piece comport remains a wonderful example of its type.
Do not allow this opportunity to pass you by. It is a fabulous piece for your collection.
