Monumental French Glass vase by D'Avesn with birds
A spectacular and outstanding French Vase by D’Avesn circa 1930′s. This piece measures 12.50″ T with a diameter of a staggering 30″ at its widest point. The piece was offered at Sotheby’s Auction of Applied Artson in 1991 (at that time 20 years ago for over $3000 dollars). The glass is a deep red/black color with deeply carved birds and floral motifs. Also added is a hand rubbed dye to accentuate all of the details in the monumental piece. It is an exceedingly rare piece of glass in the tradition of some of the best Lalique fine moulded glass works. There are no imperfections and it is impressed D’Avesn France on the bottom.
Classic Art Deco vase created by the well known French designer Pierre D’Avesn. D’Avesn designed some of Lalique’s most well known pieces including the “Serpent” and “Tourbillon” vases. His resume includes stints as designer and Manager at Daum, Sevres and Verlys. He started producing his own pieces in 1927. Pierre D’Avesn is an artist/designer whose work is of the highest quality and this is an opportunity to own a real museum piece.
