Beautiful 1930s German Art Deco Glass Parakeet Vase by Brockwitz

This gorgeous vase is by Brockwitz, Germany, which were one of the most prolific of quality glass factories of their era, as this vase undoubtedly demonstrates.

All of the press moulded glass designs produced by this factory were exceptionally innovative & uniquely distinctive from other glass factories of the period.

Each item of Brockwitz be it a bowl, comport or a vase as offered here, far exceeded practical use. Boldness of design matched with artistic quality placed this factory amongst the leading exponents using press moulded glass techniques. This pattern vase was introduced by Brockwitz circa 1935 and featured strongly in their original catalogues up until the outbreak of WWII simply described as `flower vase number 6925' but what a fabulous flower vase it truly is.

One can see pictures of glass in today's world of the internet, and then imagine that such items are common. Please make no mistake, Brockwitz glass is rare and its desirability far exceeds the demand. I would urge you to view my own shops items, particularly those which have been sold... There you shall see how quickly these items disappear into collections all over the world and for good reason, as Brockwitz is a Hallmark of outstanding quality, without compromise...

If you are new to this maker, then nothing can quite prepare you for coveting your first piece. The size & scale or the depth of colour for example and the attention to detail throughout each and every moulded feature, present you with feelings of sensational expression. This vase is no exception to those rules.

Take away the parakeets... and we are still left with a masterpiece. Remove the matt-satin frosted elements of this vase, and yet again it still remains a beauty. Imagine this piece with just a simplistic flat-round base and it would STILL be incredible. Brockwitz pushed the boundaries. They went far beyond the norm and as such have become a major force to be reckoned with for very wise investment . . .

. . . The base of this vase is a stepped oval. Three steps in total, two of which have been matt-satin frosted to compliment the two spiralling wide bands which separate the transparent moulded decorative panels of decorative stylized holly leaves & berries, in thickly raised high relief. These features alone make for a wonderful design, which culminate & combine to form a six sided curvature top rim to the vase . . .

. . . And then Brockwitz provide a pair of Art Deco styled sculptured parakeets to each side of the vase which turns this piece into a triumphant trophy. The resulting effects are magnificent & beautiful, using one of the factories most desirable of all glass types, Soft-Pastel Blue.

CONDITION REPORT: My photographs form the major part of describing this vase, which as can be seen cannot hide. This vase is in pristine condition for your collection, save for minuscule nibbles to the base which are far too small to be shown. It is a fabulous Brockwitz piece which shall never disappoint the discerning collector & admirer of Art Deco press moulded glass, which was produced by one of the most important glass factories of their era.
