This tall graceful beauty by Eisch encapsulates a great deal of skillful detail.
The finely pulled feather detail embodied in the purple glass is a pale turquoise and apricot, beginning at the fluted rim and finishing at the base. The iridescence is a crackled gold at the rim and down the neck before fanning out at the bulb into its multitude of colours.
The size of this piece lends to its presence and it would have no difficulty in being displayed as a standalone piece. The style and decor is as reminiscent of Art Nouveau as it is of Loetz Kralik glass yet still carries the artistic creativity of Eisch, and would suit a room with Vintage, Retro or Art Nouveau inspired decor.

A BIT OF HISTORY
The glass-making tradition of the Eisch Family has been traced back to Mathias Alesch, born in the Bohemian Forest in 1689 and listed among the employees of a small glassworks there. In December 1952 the first glass was smelted in what was at the time the latest and smallest glassworks in Bavaria. In spite of initial difficulties, by 1956 Eisch glassworks had expanded to a 12-pot furnace.
The full name - Glashütte Eisch, lies at the heart of the Bavarian Forest, it is here that the Eisch family has been producing hand-made glass for over 60 years. Erwin Eisch has been regarded as the founder of the international studio glass movement since the 1960s, with Harvey Littleton as one of the first artists to use glass as a medium of artistic expression.
