A trio of simple and beautiful pieces of chemistry glass from the turn of the century, these were hand-blown and have a perfect, textural irregularity to them (visible best in 5th picture). They are wonderful grouped together for an usual arrangement for flowers.
These beautiful chemistry pieces hail from a family home not far from Paris where a family of painters and musicians traces their roots back to a great-grandfather who was a chemist at the turn of the century. It's not often their stories are passed down with the pieces I find so it was wonderful to hear about and see a picture of the man who worked with these.
Beaker - 8.5 cm x 13.5 cm / 3.25 in x 5.25 in
Bowls - 7 cm x 3.5 cm / 2.75 in x 1.4 in & 6 cm x 3.5 cm / 2.3 in x 1.4 in
These pieces wear their history like all vintage pieces which only adds to their story. These glass pieces hae no chips or cracks. The larger of the bowls has been 'frosted' by time and Monsieur's experiments.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
