This sensational & impressive centre piece display uses the amazing qualities of scarce uranium aqua blue glass to perfection.
It is one of several of this pattern type currently available from my collection. I have provided a photograph which perhaps justifies the charming presence of these quality made items, all of which were produced by Inwald.
Josef Inwald, Elsahütte, Rudolfshütte and many other glassworks in the Czech Republic later combined and united circa 1945 to become more known as: Sklo Union glass.
The pattern name of this piece is `Poisson Volant' and it predates the above date of production. Of particular note is the colour variant of this particular example. Aqua blue uranium glass is scarce and in collective terms is more desirable than that of green, and looking at this piece it is not difficult to understand as to why. When lit with UV black light, this piece launches itself into another world of display, becoming vibrantly rich & glowing, as only this glass can or will.
Even under natural light conditions this piece is truly a beauty, as it is most unlike any other blue coloured glass that was used by other glass factories of the period.
The predominate feature is of course the fabulously moulded glass fish, which when placed into its accompanying flower-frog, forms a marvellous central display. There are twelve pre-formed holes provided on the flower-frog which makes an easy task of floral arrangements which is the intentional use of this piece.
The bowl provides ample depth and size for water and floral displays if desired, and it has been moulded to its interior with a central ring of glass which prevents movement of the flower-frog & the fish, whilst in situ. I have often used floating flower petals with a few drops of aromatic oil to fill the room with a beautiful ambience.
These centrepieces produced by Inwald, are large & impressive works of art. They have an appeal to them that is tireless wherever they are suitably displayed within any interior setting, and with three different colour examples being currently offered, there is one here just for you...
The condition of each of the three separate components is pristine, however for accuracy purposes of description, a slight roughness (which is common upon these items) can be felt where the fish fits into the central hole of the flower-frog. This by no means detracts or interferes with the stability of the fish, and in more cases than not this roughness was caused at time of manufacture, during the working procedures required to grind the glass `peg' of the fish to ensure a complete & snug fit.
It is a beautiful example for your collection...
