Look closely and you can see that Lalique was the inspiration for Kenneth Haley, when he designed this glass set.
It was originally named, "Dancing Nymphs" but has since been also called, "Dancing Nudes" & "Dance of the Nudes".
These pieces are that lovely shade of blue-green glass that you find on the beach here on the coast of Maine, and collect the little pieces in bottles to look at. The pieces are shiny and smooth on the top (or inside, in the case of the salad bowl). The reverse is frosted and raised. Examine the plates and you'll notice they are all frolicking around the center and their raised feet are literally the "feet" beneath the plates!
While the bowl and plates are "technically" a salad set, we're convinced that the plates should hold shortcake and the bowl should be filled to the brim with strawberries fresh from the farm! How pretty (and delicious) would that make these pieces.
A great set as a gift for any musician you know! Note the trumpet and tambourines in hand as they prance and dance in a circle!
Research has told us these were only produced between 1926-1939 with a brief break (1932-1936 that the factory was actually closed) in production. Consolidated Glass produced this pattern in clear, green and pink. The majority of pieces you can find are clear, making these quite a delightful and unusual assembly to enjoy.
