friedrich bundtzen – set of beakers | olg | 1962

 


another example why i regard the work of friedrich bundtzen. these mouth-blown beakers are fine graduated in different sizes for storing and packaging glass-in-glass. the clear shape stands for its own. the only decoration of these glasses are the traditional square-cut base. they are highlighted at the cover of his catalog raisonné from 1969. [mould-blown crystal glass, h. 13-7cm]
