Calculate shipping cost
Valuable pair of colored opaline glass vases with original and particular shape; they were blown in one piece (body and base), seamless, then shaped with skill by skilled craftsmen of Clichy glassworks in France between 1960 and 1964; the most difficult and particular operation was to leave the opaline white inside and make the outside with different colors; some colored oxides were applied when the draft of the white opalescent vase had already come out of the furnace; at the precise moment when they began to melt and amalgamate with the white, the craftsman began blowing and modeling the vase, quickly and quickly, so that the colors were distributed only on the surface of the object without penetrating, as if they were brushstrokes, then put the vase back in the furnace for a very short time and then proceeded to a quick cooling; an operation that not everyone is able to do, in fact, it is delegated only to the glass masters. The Clichy glassworks is a glass factory founded in Pont-de-Sevres in 1837 and moved to Clichy-la-Garenne, near Paris, in 1839. Since the beginning of the Second Empire, it has been the most important French manufacture in the production of colored glass; over the years it has adapted to styles and fashions, but always with high-quality workmanship, establishing itself as one of the most representative factories of the French luxury industry. Measures: Diameter cm. 14, height cm. 25.
