LURELLE GUILD "MARLBOROUGH VASE" 1934
Caviar20 has a special affinity for mid-century American design -especially when the designs intersect the aesthetics and ideologies of Art Deco, Modernism and Machine Age.
Like Gilbert Rohde or Chase, designs by Lurelle Guild (1898-1985) were inspired by the rapidly changing aesthetics of his era while taking advantage of the advances in production of the day.
Guild was one of the most successful industrial designers of the 20th century having patented over 1,000 of his creations.
This handsome vase, manufactured by Kensington beginning in 1934 epitomizes the material and aesthetic innovation of the era.
This vase came from a collection of aluminum alloy consumer products with cast brass details. When then debuted they were quite expensive, highly desirable and very innovative.
