FRENCH, ‘BRIQUE DE VERRE’ VASE, C. 1940

Glass block has a long-standing history in architectural design, first patented in 1866 by Gustave  Falconnier. Glass bricks, or “briques de verre,” were blown into a mold with a hollow center and an open hole at the end, which was then filled with a plug. The end of this glass block has been left open so that it can serve as a vase. Very Post-modern and Art Deco at the same time. 

5.75”H x 5.75”W x 3.25”D
