A Superb Amber Cameo Glass Gase. Signed by Zelenka Czech Republic

This glass vase is astonishing within the field of Bohemian cameo glass. It is truly sublime...

Bohemian glassmaking can be traced back in history to around c1250 and in the current State of the Czech Republic, it has been consistent in producing quality decorative glass within this region of Europe in all periods & styles...

... Here for your collection, is an original handmade glass vase which is influenced by the Art Nouveau period, and produced by Zelenka.

Zelenka are no strangers to Art Nouveau cameo glass styles and they are factory of outstanding quality as this vase undoubtedly demonstrates. No expense has been spared during its methods of manufacture.

Zalenka cameo glass is unconventional in terms of how it is produced, as unlike say the works of Galle, Daum, Stevens & Williams and Thomas Webb for example, Zalenka use glass moulds to provide the raised decorative designs to the body of a piece, before then wheel-cutting into the glass with diamond points & glass brushes so as to remove unwanted areas of glass and to leave fine-lined details and features. By adopting these working methods, exceptional detailing can be achieved: such as the intricate lace-like wings of the six dragonflies upon this stunning piece, right down to the individually stylized hairs upon the legs of the insects. It is a wonderful observation of Art Nouveau styling in representation, using tortoiseshell – amber glass.

Further glass working techniques have been used upon the piece to provide variations of textures to the glass. Matt-satin frosting, fire-polishing & wheel polishing, each culminate to produce a glass vase of captivating beauty without any compromise to quality. It's a sensational work of art, and it is also in pristine mint condition for your collection... It is completely free of any damage.

The vase carries a full set of maker marks carved in cameo to its ground & polished base.
