Captivating 1930s Art Deco Satin Frosted Glass Corner Display Set with Mirrors
I have two examples of these wonderful Art Deco press moulded corner displays currently listed here in my shop which I kindly urge you to study and to compare for a while as both display with wonderful qualities Art Deco interpretations of a lady, using glass.
This item is breathtakingly beautiful and as one can see, uses the qualities of 'Mirror' to emphasise the qualities of an 'Art Deco Glass Lady' with incredible pose, formation & style.
'September Morn' (as this study is known) has unlimited display possibilities together with originality, scarcity and true vintage quality wrapped-up in one package.
Game Set & Match!
You get, 'Three Ladies in one' with this wonderful component set piece because from whichever angle you view this beautiful item each 3 dimensional feature of the lady reflects back to you with unquestionable beauty and refinement.
It is also evermore unique & desirable for its angled dish shape which has been designed for any corner display where to be snugged-in tight as opposed to any circular item of glass.
The design allows for it to be placed where no other such can due to its angular rendition & form.
This item was not only new & refreshing in the world of Art Deco glass but a very clever and sensible notion for most domestic display areas of shelves, walls cabinets & corner spaces are square and not round and as such, this marvellously presented glass item will conform and display to suit its interior environment within any period or style.
As no records are known to exist of the maker of these noted items, there are many opinions as to who or which glass factory produced this piece. Many would suggest Schweig, Müller & Co though this cannot be substantiated however the "glass" as is used upon this satin frosted example would suggest the above factory as its maker.
I have personally owned five glass examples of this set piece and I therefore base my own observations upon this whilst also accepting the opinions of others. The noted differences between each example have been their colour of glass variety or perhaps more importantly, the shapes to each 'lug' which retain the mirrors to each and the scalloped shaped front to the trough of which some have been flat and without pattern.
The mirror holding lugs of glass which are moulded to retain the mirror/s have either been half-moon shaped or as with this example, rectangular in form.
Various shapes and styles of mirror have also been used all of which were additions and made outside of the factory who produced, September Morn but the main features remain the same,which cannot be replicated. Not even by reproduction of any a glass mould, produced before. Most,if not all examples of these fabulous items have had various mirror replacements over the years. Quadrant, scalloped or square etc. or as with this example, triangular.
The September Morn lady pattern was produced as a stand-alone figure, by Müller and due to the annealing process which is necessary to produce such glass many of these ladies have slight variations of posture.
One thing which cannot be disputed is the splendour of this set.
As a display piece alone it is without parallel however if or when used as intended the entire becomes something else. The depth of the trough allows for good water retention for flower blooms, which reflect like a kaleidoscope upon the angled mirror background.
The lady too, with her integrally moulded glass "frog" posy-flower holder, has ten pre-formed holes to accommodate further placed flower blooms and or buds which makes arranging a simple task and as you would imagine the interior display possibilities are endless.
The base of the lady, is also peg-raised so as to allow for water penetration within. She also stands snuggly-fit within the glass trough as this has also been moulded with a circular ridge to accommodate her base.
I have also used these pattern types myself with the addition of small electrical, ultrasonic Fog generator which can be purchased at low cost from most good suppliers of reptile & amphibian equipment for a vivarium.
These silent "fogger" generators quite literally propel these Art Deco set pieces into a world of their own and when disguised by flower blooms they do not detract from the glass but add a serenity of cool-steamy evaporating mist which rises within & around with ever-changing visual appeal...
I can think of few, if any other Art Deco glass examples which can provide such joy to any corner display area.
(Further details of these Ultrasonic Fog Generators are available by request and I am also able to supply these items if required)
The condition of this set is superb. There are no chips, nicks, flea-bites or scratches to any areas of the glass and it is as crisp & fresh as the moment it was produced, circa 1930s however as is shown, one of the mirror retaining lugs has its topper most part missing. This in no way detracts from the stability of the mirror and is stably supported. This very minor damage has been reflected in the offer price of this beautiful item of 1930s Art Deco design.
