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. A very cool and unique, pod-like, yellow glass vase from the 1960s measuring over 4-1/2 FEET TALL (54-1/4”) and about 10” diameter at the base with a long, slender and curvaceous neck. The vase form seems determined by the same forces that inspired vintage science fiction images. This is a handshaped vase and a marvel of glassblowing skill...

A PAIR OF ALUMINUM JARDINIERE BY WILTON. Unusual for an American production, the feeling conveyed by this pair is fin de siecle recalling decadent book illustration from the 1920s although the use of aluminum suggests a date of manufacture closer to mid 20th century...

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...

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...

Of cased and layered glass, the pre-dominant color is amber-yellow; there are bands of red and blue at the outer edges which are contoured with the highly organic shaped lip. The bowl is in good condition. There are minute and very superficial scratches from use as this is a genuine article. Approximate Dimensions: 9 inches long x 7-5/8 inches wide...
