Vase, ca. 1927
Venetian/Murano glass surged with the focus on Italian crafts in the Monza biennials of 1923, 1925, and 1927. The interest in engraved glass emanated from Scandinavia, and from Austria during the 1925 Paris World’s Fair and in the late 1920s. Here Stella’s organic vase form is enhanced by engraver Peltzel’s depictions of floating dancing figures.
