- CZECH Art Glass - SCHLEVOGT Ingrid DECO Vase LAPIS Marble Glass CZECH
Beautiful CZECH Art Glass LAPIS blue marble glass Dancing Lady vase; Curt Schlevogt, Gablonz, Bohemia.
Heinric Schlevogt thought of glass as a medium for great art. He conceived the "Ingrid" lines as a series sculptures, designed by leading artists and executed in glass resembling marble, malachite and lapis lazuli. The pieces were mold cast by Riedel and then cut and polished at the Curt Schlevogt glassworks to achieve their lustrous finish. Ingrid is the epitome of the Czechoslovak glassmakers' art.
The Ingrid line was in production until World War II and sporadically post war after the Communists nationalized all the glassworks in Jablonec (as Gablonz is now known). The high quality of the cast and beauty of the marble glass indicate this vase is from the 1930's.
This vase, known as "Dancing Lady" was designed by Artur Plevar. It features bas relief panels of 4 Art Deco draped (and undraped) female figures. Between them are matte and polished panels with sharp ridges.
An example of this vase, in malachite green, is in the permanent collection of the Corning Museum of Glass.
MEASURES: 9-1/2 inches tall, 6 diameter.
