LOVELY VERY RARE LOOP WINGED ARTWARE GLASS VASE. This is a wonderful, rare, period loop winged artware aubergine / smoke tinted glass vase designed by Pierre d'Avesn which dates, I would guess, to between 1927 and 1932 (the period he was working for himself).
It is depicted in the mentioned press moulded aubergine / smoke tinted glass with the forementioned looped and pierced'wings' to either side of a rounded tapering (to the base) body with lightly textured surface. The base is unmarked - for all see photographs and details. D'Avesn was a highly regarded glass designer who worked and designed for some of the major French art glass manufactures of the time, designing some seminal pieces for both Lalique and Daum Bros.
This piece is loosely based on one of his later designs for Daum. It measures 7" (18cm) h x 8 1/2" (21.75cm) w (wing to wing) approx; and is in excellent condition with no defect at all to report, apart from a couple of small light surface scratches consistent with its age (there is a mould [to the mould] scratch to the base which is factory done and retailed like this) - see photographs and details. This is a wonderful piece of period French Art Deco glass in a really great design and condition and with a low start price should get considerable interest from all collectors.
