Yes, an original JAMES Lundberg creation. How rare they are. This is the second James Lundberg vase I have offered. The first sold very quickly, in spite of its price tag. James Lundberg made very few of these treasured gold aurene vases. These are revered the world over.
The pictures, for some reason, make the stem appear much more greenish than it is in person. However, the gold aurene photographed quite true. It is easy to understand why he is constantly compared quite favorably to Tiffany.
This vase is in Very Good Condition. It has no chips, cracks or losses. Shows less than expected age wear. It has a rough pontil. Pictures are part of the description.
Size: It stands 12 and 3/4 inches tall.
I'd like to remind you that we are always happy to offer layaway. It gives us more time to enjoy a magnificent creation before it is completely paid off and shipped to its new home.
James Lundberg began working in glass in the late 1960s, while a student at California State University.
James Lundberg first started creating beautiful, high quality studio art glass when he founded Lundberg Studios in 1970. Classically trained in ceramics, then glazes and finally glassmaking techniques, Lundberg traveled to Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England to learn his art. Stopping in New York City on his way home from Europe, he was struck by the beauty and hues of Tiffany Art Glass. He became the leading replicator of Tiffany Style art glass. Using the knowledge and skills he had acquired, most notably the prismatic glasses and decorative techniques of Tiffany, Lundberg began creating paperweights of a style and beauty that had previously not been created or exhibited. In conjunction with the other artists of Lundberg Studios, this new style was called California Paperweight Style or "torchwork". His mastery of Tiffany style vases earned him a world-wide reputation. His Gold Aurene and other finishes are breathtaking.
Examples of the glassworks and art of James Lundberg are included in nearly every significant private glass collection and major museum. James Lundberg passed away in 1992, at the height of his renown.
