Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a beautiful Art Glass pedestal rose bowl made by Victor Durand, c.
The rose bowl is a bluish-green glass with silvery iridescence with the pedestal base being topaz glass with a golden iridescence. Although most Durand glass was unsigned and left the factory with a paper label, this vase is correctly signed V. Durand" and numbered "2001 - 4. Measures 5 1/2" high with a 4 1/2" overall width, a 2 1/2" diameter top opening and a 3 3/4" diameter base.
This nice rose bowl is in excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws. There is one small faint nick in the iridescent finish on the rounded body and another on the base that are called for accuracy but are not flaws in the glass and don't detract at all from the beauty of this wonderful vase. History: Born in France in 1870 Victor Durand Jr.
Was the fourth generation in his family to work in glass. He migrated to the US and for a time was a designer for Tiffany prior to opening his own glass house, the Vineland Flint Glass Works in Vineland NJ. Although the factory originally produced utilitarian items, Durand wanted to expand into the art glass category. With the help of a few others who had previously worked for the Quezal Art Glass Decorating Company in Brooklyn NY, he began producing high quality Art Glass at the Vineland Glass Works in 1925. Durand produced very high quality Art Glass that competed with Steuben's Aurene and Tiffany's Favrile glass but the quality of his glass was greatly limited by his untimely death from a tragic auto accident in 1931.
Due to the short time that Durand produced Art Glass, the quantity of his glass was greatly limited. Durand glass is very desirable and is included in all major Art Glass collections world-wide.
