Design - Two Day Sale

Tue, 25th Jan 2022 - Wed, 26th Jan 2022

 

Whether it be 18th Century tableware, decorative Victorian, or post war design, glass features prominently in the decorative art market. Continual research has led to the emergence of new collecting areas such as the post war Czechoslovakian market with names such as Stanislav Libenský and Pavel Hlava generating stronger interest amongst buyers. Finer examples of each period always demand a premium. A recent auction highlight at Sworders saw an 18th Century ‘Export’ drinking glass sell for over £1,500 and at the other end of the scale, a design classic - the c.1962 Pulcini bird, made at Vistosi and designed by Alessandro Pianon realising £2,500.
