You might call me a restless collector, once I have delved as much as I can o a specific artistic decorative category, I am compelled to continue in an appropriate direction. For me it makes sense. I have the latest publication by Mark Hill, and waiting for 2 more books.
This weekend I spent much time on Ebay Germany UK and USA, looking at Union Sklo glass and others, the mid century modern art glass category, highly influenced mainly by Murano, Scandinavia, and in a lesser impact the Chalet glass produced in Canada produced in Czechoslovakia.
This is the glass we grew up with and there is a feeling of coming full circle, after 50 years, and discovering the best there was to offer, with our point of view today.
I am posting two Klinger glass vases from his designs of the late 1950s early 1960s. His glass products appeal to me the most, understated, yet fresh, innovative and elegant.
On 23rd - I have edited this post and removed a Zemek design vase which had been attributed to Klinger on Ebay. I will compose another post for that one with appropriate information. Thank you CW members for providing the accurate information.
