Two rare Theresienthal enamelled flower form glasses with green glass stems and clear glass bowls; the bowls enamelled as abstract shapes that reveal themselves to be flower-heads when looking into the bowl of the glass. Gilding applied to the rims, a gilt ring to the foot and gilt detailing to the design. These flower form glasses were intended to be appreciated from above or in use. The flower design is not always immediately apparent until one looks inside the bowl.

History

The Theresienthal glassworks, founded in 1836, were run from 1861 by three generations of the family of Michael von Poschinger (1834-1908). In 1897 Michael von Poschinger handed the works to his son Benedikt (1864-1915). From 1915 the firm was run by Benedikt’s sons Hans (1892-1951) and Egon (1894-1977). The works were taken over by Hutschenreuther AG, Selb, in 1982 and are still in Zweisel, Germany

Art Nouveau, ornamental style of art that flourished between about 1890 and 1910 throughout Europe and the United States. Art Nouveau is characterized by its use of a long, sinuous, organic line and was employed most often in architecture, interior design, jewellery and glass design, posters, and illustration. It was a deliberate attempt to create a new style, free of the imitative historicism that dominated much of 19th-century art and design. About this time the term Art Nouveau was coined, in Belgium by the periodical L’Art Moderne to describe the work of the artist group Les Vingt and in Paris by S. Bing, who named his gallery L’Art Nouveau. The style was called Jugendstil in Germany, Sezessionstil in Austria, Stile Floreale (or Stile Liberty) in Italy, and Modernismo (or Modernista) in Spain.
