Verlys Butterfly Bonbon Dish, Crystal Etched, Ca. 1942
Verlys of France, formed in 1931 as part of the Societe Anonyme Holophane Les Andelys, was one of the many French art glass manufacturers of the early 20th century who drew inspiration from the magnificent creations of Rene' Lalique. Verlys of America, a subsidiary of the Holophane Lighting Co., began production in Newark, Ohio in 1935 using many of the original French molds.
This lovely lidded bonbon dish from Verlys of America, produced using the original French mold, features a trio of deeply molded butterflies finished with an acid-etched exterior and polished interior, topped with original clear Bakelite and metal handle.
Production of this shape was from 1935 – 1949, and can be found with or without a handle.
Condition is excellent, free from chipping or cracking, with a nearly imperceptible nick to the one of the butterflies, minor rusting to the metal fittings of the handle, and scratching to the base.
Marked with molded signature to the interior and etched signature at the base.
H 2.25", D 6.5".
