Description

HENRY SCHLEVOGT (GERMAN, 1904-1984): AN INGRID FROSTED GLASS HEAD

the head of an elegant lady, raised on a geometric base with faceted edges, unsigned,

38cm high

Often mistaken for Lalique or Moser, Ingrid is the name of a series of artistic pressed glass works of art made by Henry Schlevogt and name after his daughter. At the Spring Trade Fair in Leipzig in 1934, the Schlevogt firm introduced a line of ornamental crystal sculptures, and the same year presented the line at the Chicago World’s Fair. It was well received and Schlevogt began producing glass works of art on a large scale.

Schlevogt wrote: “I told myself that artists used marble for their sculptures; we should make marble out of glass. And we should get the designs for this marble-glass from sculptors.” The result was a complete line of ornamental sculptures, perfumes with figural daubers and/or impressed stoppers, liquor sets, toilet sets, devotional items, figurines, table ware and vases.
