Pierre d’Avesn French opalescent glass bowl circa 1930s. Fully signed & mint.

It is worth mentioning here (whilst describing this piece) that Rene Lalique was well into his 50s when his first moulded glass vase & bowl patterns & designs were introduced, however Pierre d'Avesn worked for Lalique from aged just 14 years, and by aged 24 years had designed many of Laliques famous pieces: `Tourbillons' and `Serpent' perhaps being the most desirable and highly prized patterns even to this day.

d'Avesn undeniably did much more than simply contributing to the glass-making world of his era... He was paramount with establishing it.

By aged aged 29 years he was Manager & principal designer at `Daum Freres' at their Croismare glassworks in Luneville in France, where he remained until c1936. One year later he took over the Management of `Verlys' until the outbreak of WWII c1940 and still aged just 39 years... This man was a genius as is evident by the incredible works he left behind, not only for other glass factories but also as a freelance at Cristallerie de Choisy-le-Roi (Sèvres).

d'Avesn `IS UP THERE' with the likes of R Lalique, Sabino and any other glass working genius of the 20th century and this beautiful piece proves that with abundance... It is the `oiseaux' pattern number 156 and it carries a full set of maker marks in moulded block capitals: P D'AVESN MADE IN FRANCE 156

The bowl is thickly moulded in raised relief with a border of birds in flight set amongst stylized berries & vines, and as you would expect, the decorative features have been moulded to perfection using only the highest quality French opalescent glass.

It is an exceptional piece for your collection and is a very wise investment. It is also offered to you here completely free of any damage, the condition is pristine. This is quality glass for the discerning connoisseur and its value is destined to rise...
