Before the studio art glass movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, artists would design the art glass, but craftsmen would actually blow the glass. As the Movement progressed, glass studios were established so that the artists could produce their own work. This gorgeous 7 7/8” tall vase is a wonderful example of the design and glassblowing that artists were capable of mastering. This very substantial vase, which weighs a little over 7 lbs, is designed with mauves, royal blue, turquoise, orange, yellowy-gold, blacks and browns. The diameter at the mouth is 8 ½”. It is signed and numbered on the bottom, but I cannot make out the signature; the pontil is also evident. Knowing the estate this piece came from, it is probably from the late 1970s. It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. If anyone recognizes the signature, I would love to know.
This piece is one of many in an art glass collection that we recently acquired, and on the bottom is a sticker that was on it from the estate. This helps us to keep track of the many pieces.
What a great find to add to your art glass collection or just as an accent piece on your shelf. Please contact us if you have any questions.
