Art Deco Glass Serpent Centerpiece Bowl
Designed by Friedrich Scheiner, this stunning example of Art Deco glassware appears in the Brockwitz factory catalogue as early as 1936, and again in 1941. The factory, located in the town of Brockwitz, near Dresden, Germany was founded in 1903. It was producing high quality Carnival Glass as early as 1915, and bold and innovative Art Deco glass into the 1930s to 40s. This centerpiece bowl is from the latter time frame. Known as a Serpent bowl because of the detailed serpent handles, it was item number 9076a/27. It measures 16″ long, is 10 1/4″ wide, and stands 5 1/4″ tall on 4 scrolled feet. It has an air bubble near the rim, with a few small fleabites on the inner rim itself, and there is a straw mark on the bottom, typical of pressed glass of this age. Thought to be mostly destroyed by WWI and WWII, Brockwitz glass is a rare find today!
