Vintage 1947 Gunnel Nyman Controlled Bubble Signed Art Glass Vase
Description:Gunnel Nyman (1909-1948) is a famous Finnish designer who found inspiration in both the quality of light in glass and in the way glass solidified instantly when taken out of the heat source. She is credited for taking Scandanavian art glass to new heights and isher designs areFinlands most sought after and desired pieces to this day. This piece is very specific to her technique and is a controlled bubble vase. Controlled bubbling is when you introduce air into the glass blowing process to create a pattern in the glass itself. Ms. Nyman was a master at this technique and it shows as this piece is very uniform in its design.
Markings: G Nyman 1947, there is a another phrase under the 1947 that I can not read.
Condition: no chips or scratches
We have more antique and vintage sales over @attic-archeology. Disclaimer: I am not an expert nor do I play one on TV, I'm just a guy doing a favor for my very uptight brother, I use an old Nikon to take the photos (which I readily admit I suck at) but I will try and give you the best visual scrutiny I can. When we look at condition we must take in account the age (period) of the item specific to the region of manufacturer, and what it was used for while compensating for the storage, display, and transport conditions of any item. I have tried to be as honest as I can without scaring prospective buyers off as I will tend to scrutinize it a little more critically because its my account and response reputation is very important so I apologize ahead of time if its not exactly what you would have seen, but please understand most of you are far more experienced and serious about condition. Please don't overestimate my ability. charges everyone a fee to ship on every sale so this will be passed through to consumer as part of handling fee's. Shipping weight is with packaging. Everything I sell is assumed to be authentic, I will not offer any items I suspect to be fake to protect myself, but more importantly to protect my buyers who blindly trust that us sellers aoffere by a code of ethic and practices ensuring a safe secure market for everyone.
I make it a rule not disturb the original preservation of an item so I don't clean them up for the pictures. Why? I believe its up to the collector to use detergents that may damage the finish or disrupt the integrity of the item it is manufactured with. My brother has told me that collectors want to do this themselves and are their own experts with the items.
I am hesitant to try and crack the backs of these watches that I put up for sale. I understand I can get more information about the number of jewels, the true manufacturer, serial #'s, and base metal & plating properties, but what if I damage something? Sometimes its easy, like pocketwatches, but most of the time an amateur like me will end up doing something stupid, destroying the collect-ability of the object so instead I have to make it a mystery for the person that ultimately ends up owning the item. This is why collectors collect.
