A BROCKWITZ ART DECO MOULDED GLASS DRESSING TABLE/ TRINKET SET

LALIQUE-STYLE DESIGN OF MAINLY  LEAVES WITH MUCH SMALLER SIMPLE FLOWERS

CONSISTING OF ONE TRAY, TWO CANDLESTICKS, TWO BOWLS (ONE WITH LID) AND A RING HOLDER

 SMOOTH TO THE TOUCH FROSTED GLASS ON THE OUTSIDE, CLEAR ON THE INSIDE

 
THIS SET IS SHOWN AS 'TOILETTEGARNITUR 3100 MATTIERT' (TRINKET SET 3100 MATT) IN THE ORIGINAL 1936 BROCKWITZ CATALOGUE WHICH CAN BE SEEN AT :
 http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Brockwitz-1936.32+B6YmFja1BJRD0zMiZwcm9kdWN0SUQ9OTc4JmRldGFpbD0_.0.html

THE BROCKWITZ FACTORY WAS  FOUNDED IN 1903 IN THE TOWN OF THE SAME NAME (NEAR DRESDEN), GERMANY.  FROM ABOUT 1915, BROCKWITZ PRODUCED A LARGE RANGE OF CARNIVAL GLASS,  AND THEN IN THE 1930's THROUGH TO THE  1940's, MADE, WHAT HAS BEEN SAID TO BE THE BEST, ART DECO GLASSWARE IN GERMANY, BUT ITS GLASSWARE CATALOGUE OF 1941 WAS THE LAST BEFORE PRODUCTION STOPPED DUE TO WORLD WAR ll.

MOST BROCKWITZ GLASS WAS SOLD IN GERMANY, THE MAJORITY OF WHICH IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN DESTROYED IN WWI AND WWII MAKING BROCKWITZ GLASS RARE TODAY, ALTHOUGH IT WAS ALSO EXPORTED TO BRITAIN, THE U.S., AUSTRALIA AND MOSTLY TO ARGENTINA.  

AFTER THE WAR ENDED, BROCKWITZ WAS NATIONALISED BY THE GERMAN GOVERNMENT AND NOT MUCH IS KNOWN ABOUT PRODUCTION FROM THEN ON, ALTHOUGH IT DIDN'T CLOSE FINALLY UNTIL 1990. THERE IS LITTLE DOCUMENTATION OF ITS GLASSWARE AFTER 1941, BUT IT BECAME MUCH LESS ELABORATE AND COLOURFUL.

THERE ARE SOME SMALL NOTCHES ON UPPERMOST OUTER EDGE OF THE CANDLESTICKS WHICH I BELIEVE TO BE FLAWS IN THE MANUFACTURE AS NONE OF THEM FEEL SHARP AS WOULD CHIPPED GLASS, ALTHOUGH I CANNOT BE 100% SURE; ONE LOOKS AS IF IT MIGHT BE A CHIP BUT ALL ARE ONLY VISIBLE ON CLOSE INSPECTION.

THERE ARE SOME, WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE SMALL, CHIPS ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE RING HOLDER AND THE TRAY.

THE LAST THREE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE MY BEST ATTEMPTS TO SHOW THE WORST OF THE FLAWS/DAMAGE TO THE TOP OF THE CANDLESTICKS.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT AS TO THE ACCEPTABILITY OF THE STATED FLAWS/DAMAGE; THESE ITEMS ARE MOULDED, NOT FINE GLASS AND ARE NOT, AND PROBABLY NEVER WERE, PERFECT

PLEASE NOTE THAT I ALWAYS USE CLEAN RECYCLED PACKAGING WHEN AVAILABLE BUT SAFETY OF ITEMS IN TRANSIT IS MY PRIORITY
