    Glassware very collectable and also very useful

    Posted by Iain Brunt on 07/04/2020
    Glassware very collectable and also very useful

    In the 20thcentury glass was in abundance with a variety of different designs. Good quality glassware had only been available to the rich during the 19thcentury, but now it was available to a much wider audience. Mass production techniques played its part with distinctive creations coming from talented glassware designers. Glassware manufacture has come from Europe and America in more recent times, but hopefully in time this will change. 

    Designs from the beginning of the century include Art Deco, Art Noveauand Modernism. Glass wasn’t always ostentatious and just for display only, glass as also made for utilitarian purposes. Well known designers include Lalique, Loetz, Powell, the Daum brothers and Galle.

    Art Deco furnishings

    One particular favourite period of mine is Art Deco. It’s far more modern than I would normally feel comfortable with, but there is something so fresh, so new and exotic about Art Deco, that despite its modernist feel, it still retains something old, rich and fragrant, reminiscent of a time gone by.

    How Hans Neuendorf Cornered the Market on Baselitz and Picabia, and Started a Lucrative Art Fund

    How Hans Neuendorf Cornered the Market on Baselitz and Picabia, and Started a Lucrative Art Fund

    Imagine a time when the art market was up for grabs—when everything was new, when masterpieces were not too difficult to obtain, and where a little charm, a little industry, and a lot of luck could make even modest art dealers into significant players on the world stage. This, it seems, is what the heyday of the 1970s and ‘80s were like for Hans Neuendorf, who, before he came to create artnet—and, through it, bring a degree of transparency to the art market—thrived in the rough-and-tumble, handshake-propelled business of betting on artists.
