"Laborer in Farm and Factory," Deeply Engraved Art Deco Glass Vase, Czech

US$3,950

About

A tour de force example of the remarkable glass artisanry characteristic of Bohemia and the Czech Republic between World Wars I and II, this deeply engraved vase depicts a laborer with open shirt and a shovel in one hand on one of three panels. The other panels depict sheaves of wheat and a factory smokestack, referring to the range of agricultural and industrial work that dominated the region in the 1920s and 1930s. The engraving is masterful here -- this vase represents Art Deco workmanship at a very high level.
