German Jugendstil Iridescent Glass Vase
by Freiherr Poschinger Glassworks
Material: iridescent glass
Height: 13.5 cm
Maker: The Freiherr von Poschinger Glassworks
Origin: Buchenau, Bavaria, Germany
The vase made of orange iridescent glass has broad wavy upper rim and the body decorated with white fluid sinuous lines. Thus the overall effect of Art Nouveau style (or Jugendstil – as it is known in Germany) is created.
The vase originally was labelled with the Freiherr von Poschinger glassworks label.
The Freiherr von Poschinger glassworks is the oldest German glass manufactory founded in 1568 in the district Buchenau located in the middle of the Bavarian Forest. The manufactory is unique because since the foundation until today it is owned by the same family that is von Poschinger who traditionally held the Baron title.
Manufactory always adhered to the latest trends regarding design and artistic taste and employed current technical innovations in the production. Jugedstil vases produced from about 1890 were among the most famous products of the Freiherr von Poschinger glassworks, gaining international acclaim and rewords at the Chicago World Exhibition in 1893, Nuremberg Exhibition in 1896, and the most important one at the Exposition Universelle of 1900 held in Paris.
As an homage to the very successful Jugendstil period vases the von Poschinger glasswork introduced the practise to recreate this fascinating artefacts in the more recent time, so the lines of iridescent glass objects designed by various contemporary artists were produced during 1970’s and 1980’s too.
