Early 20th Century Cameo Glass Vase and Tiffany Studios Lamps Lead Hindman’s Upcoming SaleMay 23, 2023 10:00 EDT
Cameo glass is the art of crafting designs through fused layers of glass by engraving or etching. Generally, white opaque glass motifs are engraved on a dark background. The art has been considered exquisite ever since the Ancient Roman period. Thomas Webb & Sons, an English glass company founded by Thomas Webb in 1837, is noted for its cameo glass products. Some of the company’s finest pieces were signed “Gem Cameo.” One such valuable vase is a key highlight of the upcoming Hindman sale. Measuring over eight inches tall, the late 19th or early 20th century glass is signed “Thomas Webb & Sons / GEM Cameo” at bottom. Two other early 20th century decorative items from Tiffany Studios also lead the listings. These parasol table lamps are designed with leaded glass and bronze. One is a table lamp, and the other is a floor lamp with piano base. Tiffany lamps are closely associated with the Art Nouveau movement.
The sale also features a French side cabinet by Louis Majorelle. Crafted circa 1895, it is fashioned in walnut, fruitwood marquetry, and glass. Visit Hindman to view the complete catalog and register to bid in the upcoming Early 20th Century Design sale.
