Fine Vintage Glass
About Modern LegacyModern Legacy specializes in fine vintage modern glass. The great majority of items for sale were designed and created by the leading figures in art glass around the world from the early years of the 20th century until the 80s. The selection is wide ranging and includes pieces from italian, scandinavian, american, czech and other countries renowned for their leadership in glass design. Designers/makers include Venini, Barovier, Koloman Moser, Dale Chihuly, Timo Sarpaneva, Kaj Frank, Pino Signoretto, and many more.
I have collected glass for over 30 years and have built the collection offered here based on a few guiding questions:
Is the glass of a high design standard?
What place has the designer had in influencing others?
Is it beautiful?
I have kept myself highly informed and educated in the subject and I am excited to share my collection and knowledge. Any attributions made about each item are done with a high degree of research and care. I want others to buy with confidence.
At an earlier point I was a member of the board of directors for a public museum, the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery.
