WMF MYRA GLASS DISH OR CHARGER ART DECO 1920's -1930's.

Fabulous example of WMF Myra Iridescent finished glass charger. In great condition with no chips or cracks. It reflects many colours and has a blue rim. Marvellous example of hand blown WMF glass.

History:

Myra is the name given to the iridized glass produced by WMF from 1926. Based on the same techniques used by Tiffany and Loetz, the glassmaker Karl Wiedmann brought it to the production stage after experimentation at the Zwiesel glass school.

The glass is a crystal formulated with silver nitrate instead of lead. The silver gives the glass a rich translucent amber colour, but more importantly, it comes to the surface when reduced in the oven.

At the moment when the glass is covered in a thin layer of silver it is etched with iridescent metal salts, resulting in a bluish green golden lustre with a matt finish. As an additional decorative element, some vases were blown out to achieve a crackled surface. When lit from behind, all Myra glass will show a dark honey colour, which is a good method for their identification.


Around 1935 further experiments were made with surface finishes. Instead of iridescent salts, silver nitrate or copper oxide were used for the finish. Silver nitrate gave a greenish iridescence, while copper oxide produced a bright red opaque finish with a golden shine. When this surface was partly brushed off, the silver etched underlying layer came to light and produced metallic blue clouding.


Measures approx. 29cm diameter and 5 cm high.

LOW LOW Starting price - No reserve !!

Good bidding.
