LONDON DEALERS IN ART NOUVEAU AND ART DECO GLASS
We are a family run business and have been trading in Art Nouveau and Art Deco Glass since 1981. As with many dealers, we were collectors of Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass for many years (our special interests were Daum, Galle, Loetz and Thomas Webb) before we became SPECIALIST DEALERS, dealing mainly in Continental, English and American Art Glass.
Our favourite makers of Art Nouveau Glass
and Art Deco Glass
in which we specialise are: GALLE and DAUM,
but we are also recognised as dealers in the works of many of the great Art Nouveau designers and manufacturers:GALLE, DAUM, R LALIQUE, LOETZ, MOSER, THOMAS WEBB, L C TIFFANY, FRITZ HECKERT,
LEGRAS, THERESIENTHAL, WMF
and the GREAT CZECH GLASS HOUSES including PALDA, HARRACH and HOFFMANN.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~RECENT ACQUISITIONS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A STUNNING COLLECTION OF "GREAT GRAPE HARVEST" VASES PRODUCED BY HEINRICH HOFFMANN AND CURT SCHLEVOGTThese stunning vases are from a specialist collection of Hoffmann and Schlevogt glass built up over many years of collecting by one of our clients.
The "Great Grape Harvest" vase was designed by Frantisek Pazourek for Heinrich Hoffmann in 1932 and was later produced by Henry Schlevogt in the Curt Schlevogt factory in 1939 when it entered his INGRID range.
Included in this small collection are production vases from both factories as well as very rare experimental colour-ways made for Hoffmann that never entered into production.
We have acquired the collection for another of our specialist clients.
PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WOULD LIKE US TO LOCATE ANY SIMILAR SPECIAL ITEMS FOR YOUR OWN COLLECTION.

Gabriel Argy-Rousseau PATE DE VERRE vases.

The 'RAIN' miniature vase is not only the rarest and most sought after of the landscape designs but this example is by far the smallest DAUM miniature that we have ever seen.
Two examples of the 'FOREST IN WINTER' design are shown for comparison and these are the classic forms and sizes of a salt dish and pillow vase.
All these Daum miniatures can be viewed on the DAUM PAGE.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~RECENT UPDATES AND ADDITIONS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~23 JANUARY 2016
Saturday was another "dealer's day" in our shop on Portobello Road in London with all the sales going to dealers rather than collectors.
Sales from the web pages included the very rare petit LOETZ silver overlay vase SOLD from the LOETZ PAGE.
18 JANUARY 2016
I'm pleased to say that Saturday was VERY busy in our shop on Portobello Road in London with a return of foreign trade buyers in force.
A Swedish dealer bought three DAUM acid etched floral vases from the DAUM PAGE while some eight! Japanese dealers bought more DAUM vases, the GALLE dragonfly cameo glass vase and a Fern design tea ceremony vase from the GALLE PAGE, a RENE LALIQUE 'CEYLAN' vase (duplicate of the one on the RENE LALIQUE PAGE) and also the very rare MOSER pad cameo wine glass from the MOSER PAGE.
As I have said many times before on these pages, if the International trade is buying from us then the collector can always be assured of a very reasonable deal.
So many sales has prompted me to ADD some more items to the web site.
A very rare MOSER 'Oroplastic' Art Deco casket has been ADDED to the MOSER PAGE.
A stunning pair of Art Deco KARL PALDA candlesticks have been added to the ART DECO GLASS PAGE.
A superb and very rare Malachite vase from the SCHLEVOGT "INGRID" collection has been added to the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE.
15 JANUARY 2016
2015 ended very busy but the New Year of 2016 has started quietly with little evidence of foreign dealers at Portobello Road on Saturdays and only a few dedicated customers. We did welcome a couple of our regular holiday season visitors from America but even some of those missed us as we were closed on Boxing Day.
The quiet period has allowed me to do a little bit of housekeeping with the website and this week I have managed to ADD no less than five Silver Overlay Iridescent vases to these pages. One marked L C TIFFANY can be found ADDED to the AMERICAN ART NOUVEAU GLASS PAGE while the others have been ADDED to the LOETZ PAGE. Do have a look at them and enjoy them, they are truly stunning and some are very rare if not unique.
I hope that we will see many of our loyal friends during 2016 and if you cannot visit us we are always happy to help you either over the internet or by telephone. Happy and prosperous 2016 from London!
You will see from this blog that many of our rare pieces sell to other dealers. If the 'trade' are buying our stock then collectors can be assured of getting pieces at very reasonable prices. Come and see us at Portobello Road on any Saturday.
ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE PIECES ON THE WEBSITE ARE SOLD, WE ALWAYS HOLD A LARGE STOCK OF SIMILAR ITEMS AND WILL CONSTANTLY TRY TO UPDATE THE SITE WITH SOME OF THESE NEW ACQUISITIONS.
IT IS ALWAYS WORTH CONTACTING US BY EMAIL OR TELEPHONE TO ASK IF WE HAVE SOMETHING NEW OR SPECIAL THAT WILL HELP WITH YOUR COLLECTION.
