This stunning work of Art Nouveau design offers fantastic visual detail that is both graceful and elegant. The Art Nouveau Ormulu frame is true to the style, inspired by natural forms and structures, particularly the accentuated, curved lines of the female figure, the surrounding plants and flowers.
The Ormulu has aged naturally with an antique patina and so is matte as opposed to glossy, however, it is possible to restore this if preferred. The threaded iridescent glass graduates from rich ink to indigo blue downwards into shades of violet, grape, and even boysenberry purple. Threaded all over the glass are the iridescent veins.
A BIT OF HISTORY
In the case of glass companies such as Loetz, Harrach, Moser and others, there is known documentation regarding the company’s production. Unfortunately, we are not as lucky when it comes to companies such as Kralik, Welz, Pallme-König, Rückl, Rindskopf and others. However, there has been significant research into the various glass decor styles by collectors, experts and enthusiasts in recent times and the glass style which this piece has been found to be closest to is the veined of Pallme-Koenig and Kralik.
Very good. No cracks to the glass or damage to the ormulu frame. The natural age wear to the glass and ormulu that is commensurate with the age of the piece, please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report.
Height c. 21.2" / 54 cm tall x c. 5.5" /14 cm in diameter (across widest point of glass). Width (across widest point of ormulu frame) c. 9.5" / 24 cm wide.
