Although it cannot be accurately confirmed or established, it is understood that the glass signed Cesari, was produced at Choisy-le-Roi, France.
It is also known however that examples of this opalescent glass wine coaster are often marked by Etling, which can also help to identify this particular piece, but it cannot be said that all Cesari pattern items were produced for Etling, and so until more evidence appears it would seem that Cesari was perhaps a retailer's mark or a trade name as opposed to being a maker/designer?
Choisy-le-Rois, Paris, were responsible for producing some of the most desirable of all opalescent glass for several important designers & factory names in France. The items produced are of the highest quality and almost without parallel, as this enchanting piece fully demonstrates.
The opalescent qualities of this glass are superb and it displays all of the wonderful colours that are associated to it... Creamy-white, milky-blues and golden hints of purple radiate throughout the piece in abundance. The decorative mouldings are also sublime & refined and feature a floral display of stylized lily-of-the-valley set amongst foliage which is presented in Art Deco form. Of particular note, is that the mouldings are intaglio to the underside of the coaster, which provides dramatics to the piece and refractions of light when viewed from above. It is beautiful & exquisite wherever it is suitably displayed and its smallish-size is a welcome accompaniment to any interior glass collection. Cesari, glass also represents wise investment and established desirability.
The coaster has a moulded signature in cursive script: Cesari France, and it is in pristine mint condition throughout. It's a gem of piece.
It can be said that most collections of French opalescent glass, should not be without at least one example by Cesari... It has an appeal all of its own in terms of its qualities of opalescence.
