CZECH ART DECO ENGRAVED CRYSTAL FIGURAL FEMALE VASE
Stunning cut crystal vase with intaglio deeply hand engraved female "au Naturel" is true MASTERPIECE. Yes, there is proper ENGLISH word to describe this subject, a word widely used in Art/Glass field and among Collectors, but we are not allowed to use it in title or description.... Exquisite fine detailed female is in the center of an asymmetrical hand cut medallion. Until recently, this scarce (and most costly) type of Czech Art glass was "forgotten" in American publications on the subject. Please refer to the current book of "Collectible Bohemian Glass 1915-45, Vol. II" by Robert & Deborah Truitt, which is an excellent source of information for Collectors in this field. Pages 32-45 cover engraved glass . Please note that Artwork of this caliber takes up to 5 months to complete. This breathtaking Studio ORIGINAL survived its' 60 years of existence in excellent condition. Dimension : 10-7/8"H , approximate weight 20 lbs. Most likely by Moser or possibly Kamenicky Senov, circa 1920-30's. Vase of the same design (without engraving) is pictured in the Czech publication "Ceske Uzite Umeni 1918-1938" on pg.88 and described H. Hussmann, L. Moser, Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) after 1930, see last photo. Three pictures provided showcase different details: the actual vase and detail. May we ask you to consider this true collector's item? Since some may consider it as "adult" material, we are showing photos with bar over the chest. If you want to see unretouched photos, please email us.
