1800s Burlwood Jewelry Caddy Leads 2333 | Decorative Arts Sale by NY ElizabethAug 11, 2023 03:00 EDT
An 1800s burlwood jewelry caddy is among the highlights of the upcoming 2333 | Decorative Arts Auction, presented by NY Elizabeth. This handmade set is beautifully decorated and has an aged look. Inside this antique jewelry casket are two French opaline bottles. These rare bottles were most probably designed by Portieux Vallery. The glasses are adorned with little gilt gold stars on a white body. They can be used as perfume or apothecary bottles or simply as decoration. This museum-worthy piece is said to be the only kind in the sale. Another notable French opaline item on offer is a white glass pitcher with a noticeable neon green handle. Both items were acquired from the Palm Springs Estate of Jerry Anderson and Ray Howard in London in the 1970s.
From Asia, a notable lot in this auction is a large green glass vase with a Japanese cherry blossom motif. The cherry blossom is enameled in gold, white, and red. Clear glass production in Japan dates back to as early as the Kofun period (around 300 to 538 CE), but it remained incredibly rare, difficult, and costly up until the Edo period (1603 – 1868) when new techniques and expanding consumer culture allowed glass manufacturing to flourish. While many of Japan’s most instantly recognizable traditional crafts center on materials like ceramics and textiles, glass products produced in Japan are famed around the world today.
