I am offering you a fantastic opportunity to acquire this tremendous three piece flower set display from my collection of period Art Deco press moulded glass.
It is a "Real-Show-Stopper" of a piece, which as can be seen, glows with wonderful fluorescence when lit by UV black light whilst also being a stand-alone item which commands attention wherever or however it is suitably displayed, and/or used as intended to contain large floral arrangements.
It was produced by Stolzle, and is one of the largest of all patterns produced by the factory of its period, particularly the vase.
Stolzle glass has at all times been highly respected since its foundation at the Oberdorf glassworks in Barnbach, Austria on June 15th 1805, by Karl Smola. During later years, the company, as like many others of the period, location & style, became known more commonly as Sklo Union/Bohemian Glass.
I would kindly urge you not to overlook or to underestimate the fabulous Art Deco press moulded glass produced by Stolzle.
Their works have risen with ever increasing popularity over the years, and one can see with this fabulous set as to why that is. Their collective interest is firmly placed and destined to continue.
This tremendous three piece flower vase set, displays numerous characteristics and decorative features which are associated with Art Deco press moulded glass of this quality, by this factory... In terms of its design coupled with glass as its medium.
Whoever factually "designed" this piece, had a complete understanding of translucency as an optical delight. The glass uses various degrees of thickness to enhance each and every feature of its fabulously-striking Art Deco forms & styling throughout, which are all fabulously polygonal in shape...
Beginning with the base of the vase (which is moulded with facets to make a geometrical hexagonal support) it is unlike any other and is in itself a unique feature of such vase types.
The additional use of equilateral triangles, cut-moulded from the base, allows for optimum light penetration for example, when without this feature, the base would appear to our eyes as being solid, whilst also causing it not to spread light refraction in the same ways as this piece can and does. The base section alone is a remarkable moulded glass hollow of 2 inches in depth and also in height.
Rising upwards from the base, is the vase body itself, which again uses glass thickness & well-thought-out styling to achieve optimum eye-catching effects.
Evenly placed `Sword' shapes & taller off-spaced rectangles, play against each other to add an incredible dimension to the overall design of the vase, in which ever way it is viewed, top to bottom & through & through. These decorative features also have an impressive 1 inch thickness of press moulded glass. No expense has been spared to create the design elements of moulded features to this outstanding vase by Stolzle.
If the designer was to finish and to stop at this point then this piece would still be a vase of magnificence, but once again, Stolzle go onto increase the presence of this piece, with the use of further elongated rectangular moulded forms which carry our eyes evermore upwards to the magnitude & greatness of the vases' wonderful compliment of the huge top flaring scalloped-edged rim.
Imagine this top feature also, as a bowl!
It has both the dimensions & the characteristics of one, twice less its size, and unlike its vase central, it has been press moulded intaglio to its underside, which once again propels this piece into a world of its own.
And it does not stop there!
Each intaglio moulded feature pin-points to each of the taller rectangles to provide evermore optical illusions. This vase has been "thought" about, from the very moment of its conception of design, as not only an item of sheer visual beauty, but also as one for use, and it fits that brief faultlessly to an end.
The condition of this vase is pristine. Or in other words it is in next to mint condition, as it is without any scrapes, dings, flea-bites or nicks, which in itself is quite remarkable, however save for the tiniest of shell-flakes to one inner corner of its base, which quite faithfully if not mentioned, then I doubt that you would find it, see it, or ever be aware of its existence.
Stolzle, then provide us with a magnificent glass salver/charger to compliment the vase each and every step of the way, so as to form a center piece vase display as good as any other of its period, by any factory or maker, and just as the vase component itself, would make a desirable item as just a stand-alone piece.
The salver/charger was produced by Stolzle in two sizes, but the accompanying vase component was not, and this larger of the two salver/chargers sole intentional purpose was to form this center piece as being offered to you here... and what a fabulous piece of Art Deco press moulded glass that it truly is...
Typically Stolzle, by its audacity, of yet again polygonal shapes as no other factory of its period can compete with or compare to, they pulled out all of the stops to present their vase of such presence with a display charger to match its magnitude with harmony & handsomeness.
This charger is bold & expressive and it uses many of the wonderful characteristic decorative features used by Stolzle: Solid glass globular formations; strongly defined geometrical shapes of varying glass thickness, together with size, quality and perfection throughout. Stolzle glass of this period represents affordability without compromise, one reason alone as to why I personally favour it, herald it and admire it so much. Please make no mistake, the Art Deco press moulded glass that was produced by this factory, is "right-up-there" with "The Big Boys" and can quite often leave them all behind... in terms of design, quality and attention to the working medium that is press moulded glass, and the very fact that Stolzle, as a factory company is still thriving to this day, perhaps demonstrates this even further, as it has outlived every last one of its immediate Austrian Art Deco press moulded glass producing competitors...
The glass salver/charger of this center piece has an understated, minimalistic replication of the central vase component, as that is all that it needs.
The scalloped edge of the salver coheres to that of the vase, as also do the corresponding moulded rectangular shapes which fan outwards to conform to the same patterns as are used upon the vase.
The salver is an innovative Art Deco state-of-the art design, which has been formed first and foremost for its intended use. It has a raised center ring of glass to its underside, for example. However in order for the salver to accommodate its vase (without it or both toppling over unbalanced) Stolzle provided the piece with solid orbs of glass, which not only provide a total counterbalance to the piece as a whole, but also increase its overall visual appeal... Such is the Art Deco glass produced by this factory and its unquestionable commitment to provide quality of design without any sacrifice to intended use.
The flower frog is an English addition, which would have been added at the time of manufacture by the importer/distributor of this fabulous set. Almost every single glass factory of this period in England, produced flower-frogs as separates for this intended purpose and for purchaser/customer requirement. Only the glass flower frog is factory marked: MADE IN ENGLAND which is not uncommon and no items produced by Stolze themselves were ever signed.
The desirability and the scarcity of this complete center piece is also pristine in terms of being complete and its offer price and its availability are exclusive to my shop, for no place else shall you locate a finer example of this particular pattern by Stolzle, using Uranium Green Glass as is...
As with many of my shop items, I kindly urge you not to allow this once-in-life-time opportunity to pass you by... You shall not find another, either now or in the immediate or long distant future, most certainly not at this offer price and in its incredible condition throughout.
