A pair of vases by AD Copier that I found at a church fete here in Sydney about ten years ago. In Dutch the colour is "paar" and they are a design callled KO 647. They date from 1923. Beside them is a later vase: a KN 1705. It is a large champagne coloured vase from 1936. The larger vase was one of my first objects bought on an internet auction site. It came from the US.
Beside them is the design by Copier from the National Glass Museum in Leerdam. Perhaps in this illustration you can see the beginnings of an idea that Copier completed in the larger piece years later. The design of the smaller vase seems trapped within the larger one.
The small ones are ultra light. The larger one weighs half a ton!
This year marks the 110th year of the birth of AD Copier. It is being celebrated at the National Glass Museum as "Een 'ode aan Copier'".

    I really do not like these. Too . . . simple.
  13. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Them's the breaks! Refined down to 'line'. Bloch did it too!

    Do not compare my beloved Lucienne to Copier. She had soul! (Lorca called it "duende" a guardian spirit)
  15. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    She certainly has soul!

    I never ever met somebody with such a big and great glass collection! This is heaven!
  21. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 months ago
    Many thanks Heinjan. I think your Meydam collection is wonderful. The pottery is still a sleeper internationally. Cutlery too, I think?
