Rindskopf, Pinched Tri-Fold Decorated Vase, Very Nice~~
For Sale I have a wonderful piece of Art Glass blown by Josef Rindskopf of Bohemia which is now modern day Czech Republic.
The Item is call a "Pinched Tri- Fold Decorated Green Glat" Vase. The Vase stands 9 3/8" tall. The bottom bulbous area has a diameter of 4 1/2" and the top of the vase is 4 1/4" in diameter.
This Vase is one for those who are looking to collect Rare Excellent Examples of Rindskopf Art Glass. The Vase has a Pinched Form on Three Sides and a Tri-Fold Top. This is very Art Nouveau in Style. The Vase Depicts a Pulled Feather Decor over a Teal Green Base Glass when held to the light. It has an outstanding Feathering effect starting at the Tri-Fold Top and it works it way to the bottom with 10 distinct fingers rolling into the bottom curvature. The Green Favrile, Aurene Iridescent is Good as is the Iridescence in the decorated Feather Pulls. You can see some White with Purple and Teal colors. When held to the light it is truly beautiful.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is unsigned as is the Case with Rindskopf pieces of Art Glass. They more than likely had a paper label. The Vase does have the Countersunk Polished Pontil, the sign of Quality Art Glass. I have been a collector and dealer for some 35+ years. I have only seen a few of these Vases with this Colored Decor. I would I also want to point out the Decoration and execution of this Vase is very Similar to Loetz. This leads me to believe that Rindskopf blew some of Loetz's shapes for export at the turn of the Century. I'm sure the lucky Buyer will cherish this Vase for years to come. The Vase was made in the early 1900's, Circa 1905-1920.
