Vase, ca. 1927

This is a Vase. It is dated ca. 1927 and we acquired it in 2015. Its medium is blown and engraved glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

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.

It is credited Gift of Neil and Donna Weisman.
