Here for your appraisal is a lovely 1930s French Art Deco glass lidded pot by Etling. It is the: `Bonbonnière aux pavots' (candy with poppies) pattern by Etling.
The wonderful design is unique, as it uses the same decorative mouldings for both component pieces. At first glance, it appears to be either 2 lids or two dishes of 7 inches in diameter which have been matched together, but this is how Etling designed the piece and the result is a triumph. I have often displayed this pattern as a pair of dishes for example... Such is its beauty.
Etling, embraced numerous artists of the Art Deco era and utilised many working mediums which were then showcased at Etling's high class retail outlet in Paris. Most of their glass items were also produced at one of the most prestigious of all glass working areas of France at Choisy-le-Roi, and it can be said that most French Art Deco glass which demanded quality attached to it, was produced at Choisy-le-Roi, and the glass facilities based there were used by even the most famously named, from Lalique to d'Avesn etc., each used the glass working skills based at Choisy-le-Roi at some point during their production. Looking at this piece by Etling, it is not difficult to see as to why.
No expense has been spared to create this piece. From its initial design, to the mould required to produce it, through to the glass making process, each and all have culminated with perfection.
The condition of both components is excellent. Only the purist will note the one minuscule nick (far smaller than a pinhead) upon the inside rim of the lid which has proven impossible for me to photograph. You will not be disappointed with this adorable piece. I can assure you.
