Fabulous French Art Deco Large Satin Frosted Glass Shallow Bowl by Verlux - Etling circa 1930s


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 believed that Verlux was a second signature used by Etling (to compete with `Verlys') and that they produced their glass at Choisy–le-Roi in France.

The twelve sided dodecagon shaped formation of this particular piece, makes a refreshing addition to a collection. Large bowls such as this are arguably also easier to display upon their sides if desired. I personally display bowl types such as these upon their edges (using suitable tripod stands) on window sill shelves, where they benefit from being bathed in natural light to display their individual patterns, and the patterns on this bowl are delightful...

... The central base has been beautifully moulded with stylized daisy flowers, which overlap to achieve a sense of contrast & depth to the glass. They have a similar appearance of a burst of fireworks! Thin ribs of glass radiate upwards & outwards towards the rim of the bowl, whilst bands of moulded glass pearls provides further dimension and eye-catching appeal. It's a gorgeously designed piece which having been matt-frosted to its underside also provides a luxurious finish.

At just under 35cms – 14 inches in diameter, it is also an impressive sized shallow bowl, which has an obvious use as intended, to present fruit, sweetmeats or savoury nibbles if required. And why not?

It is in perfect condition without any chips, cracks or damage repairs and it carries a full set of moulded maker marks: VERLUX FRANCE
