I can imagine this beautiful rich burgundy with gold accent decanter filled with your favorite cordial ready to imbibe in the most sophisticated way. I know I love to use these when I am home sipping away (maybe too much) on some of my finest cognacs and tequila! This Palda modernist style with dynamic stopper and 6 matching glasses, all ready for your consumption. From the Eastern block to your home care of: Art Deco Collection.com.
Fantastic quality as you'd expect from Christofle. Cut crystal and silver-plate dressing set. Three large cologne/perfume bottles, two pots and clothes brush, all pieces are a substantial size for this kind of group, with the largest bottle being 6 3/4" T. It looks to be in unused condition, probably a Wedding or Anniversary gift. It comes with a fitted box and what is especially nice about this set, its quite useful modernist design pieces are not to large, so would make a great celebration gift, sitting on your personal vanity!
This is really an unusual decanter set. Black opaque glass top and footed base for decanter and glasses. Nice matching intersecting triangles connect the decanter and the glass. I've never seen one quite like this. Also original label still intact, possibly the shop where it was originally purchased. Obviously hardly used. The glass color has a light slight baby pink color. Totally original, no restoration!
Here is a wonderful original 1930's Czech decanter set. Very modernist asymmetrical enamel design in both black and gold ribbing. Quite unusual with exceptionally large stopper on top. Comes with 6 matching glasses.
Item #1627During the Art Deco Period, each country contributed something that was it's specialty in design. Think of Belgian Pottery, French Iron Work, German Silver....but without a doubt, the single most strking thing to be made in Bohemia was the exciting and thoroughly moderne crystal creations. And of all the beautiful glass and crystal, none is more stunning than the work of Karl Palda, a true visionary in his fairly avant garde patterns. This delicously tall and carefully facted yellow and black vase also incorporates a delicate deco floral motif within in its bold , geometric outlines. A wonderful find!
A wonderful and very useful design. Modernist point of view with triangles and 1/4 circles in two color enamel glass. Yellow and black, quite rare really. I do not see these very often and have not bought one of these two-tone colors in over 3 years. The shape is great because it works perfect for a any floral setting. Most likely designed by Karl Palda. Very high quality enamel paint, not hand painted after.
A wonderful example of Lorraine, Daum glass from this very limited period. A very unusual blue color all blown to fit this nice geometric shaped iron work. The glass has a translucent quality, and very nice size. French circa 1930's.
Daum Nancy Acid-etched Glass circa 1930's, nice simple geometric shape with heavy, cast acid etching and acid wash on the outside. Typical for Daum pieces from this period. This color is usually called "topaz' tint with flared top and washed throughout the front surface..The thick walls house fine specs of gold color floating throughout. Fully signed around the bottom edge DAUM NANCY FRANCE with the croix de Lorraine
Daum Nancy Acid-etched Glass circa 1930's, nice simple geometric shape with heavy, cast acid etching and acid wash on the outside. Typical for Daum pieces from this period. This color is usually called "topaz' tint with flared top and washed throughout the front surface. The thick walls house fine specs of gold color floating throughout.
This is quite a nice piece, one does not typically find glass by Leleu, but here is a wonderful transitional piece, probably done around 1925. You have this very ornate floral rim, much like Lalique, Sabino, D' Avsen and other great French glass illustrators of this period. You can see the wonderful play of vertical ribbed glass which completes itself in the deep floral rim, even some of the original red coloring remains on the rim. The other wonderful detail is the base, the metal is designed to look like Galuchat or shagreen. It was certainly the rage at this time. The glass is heavy and typical of the high quality work that was done during this time.
Very large and unusual detailed large glass vase with unique metalwork. Looks to be of German origin, the metal work is highly stylized and detailed. The top represents the "sun", on both sides with wonderfully fitted with a starburst metal collar design that covers this very ornate leaf and flower etched clear glass vase. The piece is secured in a wonderful stable metal base. It quality of the metal finish is original antique nickel over bronze metal. A very unusual item for our shop not only with an art deco but also a Nouveau point of view. I always like to see these two periods comes together in a kind of transitional design that allows it to live in many places. Maybe your home or your museum?
This original and stylized lamp, circa 1910-1920 has all of the details of greatness. Nouveau is not a specialty of mine, but I see the artistry and perfection in this piece for sure. A thoroughly detailed bronze metal base or stand, featuring a tripod of faceted legs, great floral motif detail running upward and a most impressive highly stylized green iridescent glass insert acts as a subtle yet powerful decorative center support. All of this, delicately coming together to hold the two 1/2 circle pieces of frosted glass. Nice illumination!
Presented here is a stunning piece of art that would look great in many settings, even the early period of Art Deco, since it has such simple clean lines. I have always taken this approach, "buy great design" Also, make note of the highly stylized original art deco on/off switch, haven't seen one like this before
A spectacular Degue acid etched Cameo glass vase, striking shape and colors with a great geometric modernist pattern. Pieces of this quality do not come around often, its been years since I bought a piece as nice as this. A super collector piece, great to look at or great for a museum. Circa 1930's, signed Degue on the base and embossed "made in france"
Wonderful original French table or desk lamp designed by French artist Pierre D'Avsen. Nice details with original appointments, even the on/off switch. It is always nice to see an original piece that was designed to be together, not a marriage (as we much of these days on the internet). Of course it would look great on your desk or bedside, nice details on molded glass, with an almost mushroom shape and artist signature molded into the lower part of the glass edge.
A distinctive vase, fashioned of heavy etched glass with chrome handled accent. This is another of our collection of pieces that were once used, and perhaps sold, through the legendary La Coupole Restaurant in Paris. La Coupole was founded in 1927 and once a leading center of artistic life. La Coupole is now the epitome of the grand Paris brasserie in Montparnasse. Former patrons included Josephine Baker, Henry Miller, Dalí, Calder, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Picasso. Some of the artists painted on the columns, or added their creations to the decor.
This glass vessel bears the signature of the artist A.Riecke, a Russian who lived and worked in Paris in 1937, the name and date are etched in the glass as part of the decorative detail.
A spectacular and outstanding French Vase by D'Avesn circa 1930's. This piece measures 12.50" T with a diameter of a staggering 30" at its widest point. The piece was offered at Sotheby's Auction of Applied Artson in 1991 (at that time 20 years ago for over $3000 dollars). The glass is a deep red/black color with deeply carved birds and floral motifs. Also added is a hand rubbed dye to accentuate all of the details in the monumental piece. It is an exceedingly rare piece of glass in the tradition of some of the best Lalique fine moulded glass works. There are no imperfections and it is impressed D'Avesn France on the bottom.
This stunning and extremely rare 1930s Art Deco peach/amber glass vase was manufactured by the Müller Freres in Luneville, France. A superb vase that sports a magnificent and quite complex floral and animal motif in a nice stepped vase design. A strong sense of depth has been achieved by embossing or beveling part of the glass, producing very sharp details and a wonderfully tactile effect. The beauty of this vase is further reinforced by the satinated surface achieved by masterly polishing techniques. The glass of this vase is very thick and as such the vase is quite hefty. The vase is signed on the bottom "Müller Frères Luneville".
Behold a perfect pair of 1930s Czech Art Deco crystal decanters with silvered rims and multi-faceted stoppers. The decanters have been etched and engraved with geometric motif and are further highlighted with with deco streamlines and contrasting black lacquer details. These rare petite decanters are perfectly sized for precious liquors or would be ideal to hold perfumes or splashes.
This is a very interesting 1930s Art Deco crystal vase by Belgian glassware manufacturer, Val St. Lambert. At first glance it's simply a beautiful example of an Art Deco cut crystal vase. But a closer look reveals the cubist-inspired, non-repeating, non-uniform cuts of this piece that transform a pretty vase into an important work of art. Not counting all of the cranberry overlay diamond facets, there are a total of 22 "sides" to this VERY hefty vase! You'll always be able to see another side to this situation!
First, let me say this. Wow! This is a rare find to say the least. A gorgeous 1930s Czech glass covered punchbowl set with a stunning silver-plate and bakelite ladle, a silver-plate topper, 4 equally stunning glasses and it's all in pristine condition. The generously sized punchbowl and hefty glasses feature an unusual and beautiful oval faceted design with acid-etched and hand-painted details in the most coveted of colors (black and red). Just imagine serving punch to your guests from this spectacular Art Deco punchbowl set at your next gathering.
Item #1038Here's an absolutely perfect little art deco vase manufactured by the Müller Freres in Luneville, France. This superb smoke-colored vase sports a magnificent and quite complex linear, geometric and leaf-inspired design. A remarkable sense of depth has been achieved by embossing and beveling the glass resulting in a very spectacular vase.
This is a beautiful, unusual and heavy! hand-painted and carved crystal vase that was made in the Czech Republic during the 1930s. The unusually shaped base is somewhat "rocket" inspired and the overall effect is equally bold and elegant.
Here is a beautiful and unusual Art Deco tapered vase made in the Czech Republic during the 1930s. The apparent simplicity of the design is deceiving as the hexagonal top of the vase morphs into more of a triangular base. Stark black and white linear and geometric contrasts define this elegant and artistic piece.
A beautiful and straightforward 1930s Art Deco fluted glass vase made in France by the Schneider company. Charles Schneider was an important contributor to the 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs Modernes and was awarded the French Legion of Honour in 1926. With his brother Ernest and sister Ernestine he managed one of the largest art glass factories in France during the Art Deco period. The works from the Charles Schneider glass factory used all of the glass making techniques that were developed during the 1920s. This particularly elegant piece of glass is perfect with or without adornments and is virtually a study in dynamics. The light refracts radiantly through the acid-etched treatment near the top and gradually diminishes as the umber color deepens near the base. It is a hefty piece of glass that is also wonderful to the touch.
