This magnificent piece of glass is a new acquisition. I purchased it yesterday, along with another wonderful piece ,( an old Provincetown litho of the UU Church, which has a Christopher Wren steeple ),.....what a day it was.
This piece is absolutely stunning. Heavy, a blue to smoke to clear lens-like and glorious piece of glass. Exquisitely formed, with a ground rim, an unusual,( to me ), hollow bottom which creates a beautiful light effect when viewed from above.
and it has a brilliant shape,( for it's large size, the bowl is quite shallow ).
Signed 'Klinger' along the bottom edge, for Czech glass artist Miroslav Klinger.
I've seen several Klinger pieces on-line ranging in price from fairly low to extremely high. I didn't see any with an actual signature, ( at least one wasn't mentioned in any of the descriptions ) , but most had a foil ' ZBS ' sticker, ( I believe the initials stand for Zeleny Brod Sklo ).
Looks, loves, and help are always appreciated,
warm wishes all,
