Circa 1940 American glass, unknown maker. This is a highly unusual heavy black glass circular stand likely of American manufacture but in the classic Chinese style with three raised feet, multiple beaded edges, a slightly raised outer lip and all the detailing seen in a finely turned Chinese wooden stand of this type. This is NOT Chinese “Peking glass” but was obviously inspired by Chinese wooden stands, and it seems likely the designer had a fine Chinese wooden prototype to work with.

THIS IS A VINTAGE CIRCA 1965 ENORMOUS 54-1/2-INCHES TALL YELLOW GLASS VASE.

EXTRAORDINARY AMERICAN MODERNISM IN GLASS CIRCA 1955-60 SIGNED “ANDERSON”. This very fluid, nearly kinetic, hand-shaped white glass vase is a masterpiece of American modernism. Fluted vertical lines are played against pulled glass on the surface. The asymmetrical appearance is however repeated on both sides while the vase works from all angles or in the round elevating this white glass vase to the level of modern abstract sculpture. (Extensive photographs provided below.) The artist was prob ...click for details

A FINE MODERNIST TRIANGULAR-SHAPED MURANO BOWL OF TWO-TONED CLEAR & AMETHYST COLORED CASED GLASS, CIRCA 1955. The geometric shape is beautifully contrasted with fully rounded corners, a curved upper lip and gently curved walls. The rich ruby-amethyst color appears almost black except in bright light and covers the base of the bowl and the lower part of the walls, the coloring following the general sensual curves of the overall form which appears to have been hand-shaped. This is high-qual ...click for details
