Listing Detail Tabs

I've collected glass for over 30 years and have been fortunate enough to amass a considerable and varied collection, many of which were acquired in Europe where I lived including Venice for the odd Murano piece or two.


...what a superbly stylized and flowing seamless presentation of a magnificent crystal swan - as if a Space-Age streamlined 1950's plane - that has been blessed with the relevant elegance it deserves......and to design it in such a way that effortlessly becomes a beautiful bowl - superb!

`...spanning 15cm's wide, 14cm's high, and very very densely glassed, this is probably one of the more beautiful crystal forms I have sold recently - most definitely in regards to subject and pedigree quality lead crystal - in this stunning liquid crystal bowl from the revered "Vannes de Chatel" stable in amazing mint condition complete with it's gold foil label burning brightly on it's wing! ;-)

...I love this crystal and this is as beautiful piece of an elegant bird you are likely to find with it's super slick streamlined Modernist-Minimalist approach and almost mercury-liquid clarity - so amazingly lucid and seamless curling to form a wonderfully lucid, organic and Minimalist bowl - gorgeous!

...the stunning freshness and glissening crystal clarity of this piece is astounding and it almost appears as if made of silver or mercury in some light..

...of course the slippery curves and polish to it's skin is absolute perfection and it has a superb tactile quality.

...if you love Modernist crystal of the highest quality this is a must - but if a glass collecter of all forms this wonderful piece will apply a big fat smile to your dial - it's simply devine!

...in absolute pristine vintage mint condition with it's foil label fully intact!

......good luck and don't forget to view my other glass listings..
