This fabulous bowl makes a refreshing change in terms of its display, as all of the decorative mouldings are to the interior of the piece.
It has been beautifully moulded to its top surface with a floral display of stylized Carla lilies and buds amongst a background of foliage. The natural white of these flower types benefit from the wonderful milky-white qualities of opalescent glass which has been used, whilst their trumpet-like shape and the thickness of glass captures the golden-blues that are associated to this glass. There are also three tiny `pegged-feet' moulded to the underside of the bowl, which raises it from the surface to allow optimum light penetration from beneath. It is a triumphant design, and it has an appeal that is timeless.
It carries a full maker mark in moulded relief: Verlux FRANCE
There are several schools of thought about the glass produced by Verlux. In later years the factory became associated with the production of glass for culinary use as well as jars & bottles for the food industry, trading as BSN (Boussois Souchon Neuvesel). Prior to this however, accurate information has yet to be firmly established, but it is also believed that they produced their opalescent glass at Choisy–le-Roi, and that Verlux was a second signature used by Etling.
When it comes to Opalescent glass produced from this period, nothing can quite compete with the French glass factories based at Choisy-le-Roi. The opalescent qualities of this glass are always exceptional, as this large 13.5 inch bowl undeniably demonstrates...
... It would prove a difficult task indeed to locate another example and it is in pristine mint condition for your collection.
