About this vintage design furniture

Vase made of hand-formed cobalt glass with elements of the spotted technique of the so-called end-of-the-day glass, made of white, melted glass particles. The project was made at the Ząbkowice Household Glassworks in Dąbrowa Górnicza. Individual copies differ in the quality of workmanship, glass quality and form. The vase has a manufacturing defect, a slight fusion of quartz visible in the photos. Dimensions: height 30cm | diameter 17 cm | base diameter 8 cm | inlet diameter 9 cm Dimensions in inches: height 11.8 in | diameter 6.7 in | base diameter 3.1 in | inlet diameter 3.5 in Historical view: In 1884, Józef Schreiber founded the Ząbkowicka Glass Factory in Ząbkowice (since 1977 a district of Dąbrowa Górnicza). The glassworks, transformed in 1896 into a joint-stock company under the name Towarzystwo Akcyjne Ząbkowickiej Fabryki Szkła in Ząbkowice, produced only blown glass products. From 1902, the products of the glassworks were glass accessories and pressed glass. Art Nouveau patterns were repeated until the 1980s. Due to the crisis in 1935, the steelworks stopped production. Its re-launch took place during World War II, and the products were intended exclusively for military purposes. After the end of the war, the steelworks remained under the Provisional State Administration; in 1959 it was transformed into a state-owned enterprise operating under the name of Ząbkowicka Huta Szkła Gospodarczych - State Enterprise Separated, subordinate to the Central Board of the Glass and Ceramics Industry. In 1960, the name was changed to Huta Szkła Gospodarczy "Ząbkowice". Until 1960, HSG "Ząbkowice" did not have its own pattern room. This changed when Jan Sylwester Drost (1960) and Bogdan Kupczyk (1961), Eryka Trzewik-Drost (1966) and Ludwik Fiedorowicz (1975) were employed as designers. Reference : 283899
