Description

Large Chalice sapphire clear blue applied pattern on translucent blown glass attributed to Artistica Barovier (1919-1936) circa 1920. This goblet sits on a long stem with two decorated glass balls and a small central glass ball resting on a splayed foot. The name chalice is borrowed from Greek ????? (kulix), cup. A chalice is often used for drinking during a ceremony or may convey a distinct symbolic meaning. After World War I the company changed its name to Vetreria Artistica Barovier, it added several new partners in 1919; among them were Ercole and Nicol, Benvenuto Barovier’s sons, and Napoleone, Giuseppe's son. Later, Ercole and Nicol Barovier in 1926 and became artistic directors, creating among other things sophisticated poly-chrome hand blown glass vessels. Provenance: Martin Cohen Collection Arts.
