HUGE Sabino Smokey-Grey Glass ‘Grande Coupe Les Oursins’ Bowl circa 1925 Art Deco

Here is one of two such examples of this bowl from my collection, both of which are currently available from my collection. With impressive diameters of 14 inches, true vintage Sabino bowls do not come much grander and they are exceptionally scarce in any colour.

The date of manufacture is documented at c1925 as is also the pattern name: Grande Coupe Les Oursins (urchins). The bowl also features in the fabulous book by Giuseppe Cappa: Le Génie verrier de l'Europe (The Genius glass of Europe)

The size of scale of this amazing piece has got to be seen to be believed at times. One can rightfully admire Sabino glass bowls a small fraction of this size, however when pictured as I have photographed it here together with an opalescent Sabino piece of 7.25 inches, only then can one truly appreciate this phenomenal example.

Three, 2 inch thick moulded glass sea urchins to the underside of the bowl, provide both optic beauty & stability with height.

A further three slightly-smaller sea urchins, interpose the above to add evermore dramatics of decorative features, as so also are the interlaced 'fan-sprays' of stylized seaweed... each marine element, comes-together like a joy, in terms of Art Deco moulded glass, by one of the most important of glass makers of all time, Sabino.

It is inarguably a glasswork of genius, and it carries a signature in etched script: Sabino Paris, which indicates that it was not produced for export outside of France at time of manufacture in 1925.

The condition is excellent. It has no chips, cracks, flea-bites or repairs. Even the three moulded sea urchin foot supports are without bruising, and save for age related wear this piece is in good-as-new condition... It is a gem of a piece for your collection and it also represents a very worthy & wise investment...
