Jean Noverdy - A large Art Deco Glass Vase, France circa 1930,
the the bulbous shaped smokey glass acid-etched with panels and
a twice repeating design around the top.
This is a very fine and rare vase created by an underrated glass
maker of the period.
Noverdy established his glass-works in Dijon France around
1920. A former student of the sculptor and jeweller Henri Dubret, he
produced ceiling lamps in pressed glass with frames in bronze and
other metals as well as table lamps, wall lights etc. molded with
the fashionable stylised designs of the period.
Noverdy was awarded the bronze medal in 1929 at the exhibition of
the Société des Amis des Arts de la Côte-d'Or for two of his
acid-etched glass vases.
Slight "nick" to one crown in the top section.
