URANIUM GLASS Walther & Sohne Art Deco PELICAN Centre Piece

This is a superb ART DECO centre bowl made by the famous GERMAN glass manufacturers Walther & Sohne in c1935, in pressed uranium glass.


Uranium glass reacts strongly to UV light. I tried to show this in the pictures.

The centre piece is made in three parts; the bowl itself is raised on three feet with floral segments around the central water reservoir. The frog sits in the centre of the bowl and it holds a stunning frosted model of two pelicans. One of the pelicans is standing and the other pelican is sitting at its feet. They face in opposite directions; the sitting bird is not obvious at first glance, but when studied the cleverness of the design comes to light. The sitting birds head also forms one wing of the standing bird.

CONDITION: The condition of the bowl is excellent overall. However it has a minor fault, which is a chip on the frog in which the pelicans sit. This is seen in the picture. Other than the mentioned fault the centre piece is in perfect condition. The fault is consistent with age and in my opinion it does not detract from the beauty of the piece.

It is extremely hard to find a piece of this vintage and in this good condition especially in uranium glass as not many were made at the time.

MEASUREMENTS: It measures 22cm in height and 31cm in diameter.
