CZECH 1920'S "VENETIAN" GLASS FLOWERS IN POT
"Venetian" style multicolor glass flower bouquet composed of freehand flame/lampworked flowers set in molded glass pot. Each glass flower leaf is worked onto a wire. The wires are then twisted into a stem to form a flower. The stems are twisted into a bouquet. The bouquet stem is tightly wrapped around with color silk thread and then set into molded glass pot. This type of Art glass or jewelry originated in Bohemia (Gablonz region) in the early 1800's and is extremely SCARCE - very little survived because of its fragility. We are native Czech born and travel to our "homeland" frequently. Over the last 25 years we were fortunate to acquire some of these "treasures" from the descendants of the highly skilled Artisans - "Cottage workers", who made this type of glass or jewelry 70-80 years ago. Comparable type of this Art is listed in the book "Collectible Bohemian Glass - Volume II (Pg.85, #1). Pictured 2" flower is from the Collection of Jablonec Museum of Glass and valued between $250-$300!!! Don't pass this one and enjoy EXQUISITE piece of "lampwork" glass artistry of the past. Gablonz, Czechoslovakia circa 1920, excellent condition, 4" inches high.
