1930s Czechoslovakian Art Deco ‘Hippocampes’ Seahorse Vase by Barolac - Inwald

Here for your appraisal is a beautiful example of Czechoslovakian Art Deco press moulded glass produced at the Inwald glassworks c1930s.

`Barolac' was the trademark name used by designer Douglas Jenkins, who was the son of John Jenkins, a major glass importer in England. John Jenkins & Sons also owned many of the Barolac glass moulds up until they were lost during WWII.

Some moulds however were still being used during the 1950s – 1960s by Libochovice but only using uncoloured glass and with a lack of quality finish. This coloured example would only have been made during the 1930s and no later than c1935, and just look at how incredibly made this vase is...

The moulded aquatic pattern almost covers the entire outer surface of the vase, with various stylized fish of different sizes, swimming in the same direction against a background of water-weed, and then what about the sensational handles of the vase! Beautifully crafted & portrayed as a pair of seahorses and depicted with refinement... It is a triumphant designed piece and it has a visual appeal that is timeless, particularly using the gorgeous glass colour of rich emerald green.

I can only apologise for my lack of photography skill, as the photographs used here do not give this vase full justice. It is a complete joy to behold. The vase is also completely free of any damage. There are no cracks or chips to the glass, just age related wear to the base rim which is understandable & acceptable.
