Object ID #907214295
This is a Gazelle.
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
The severity of this strong spherical form by Sidney Waugh, sculptor and chief assocate designer at Steuben, is relieved by an engraced frieze of dancing gazelles, a motif and style already popular in the mid-1920s. This bowl's colorless glass and thick walls show Swedish influence, while the engraver's technique comes from his Viennese training.
This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
