This is a striking Art Deco glass vase of drawn ovoid form from the Verrerie d’Art Degué glassworks. The vase has a geometric motif in relief over a textured mottled pink-magenta ground. Ground pontil mark to base. Relief signature "Degue" to body. The vase measures 24 cm in height and 16 cm maximum diameter. The Verrerie d’Art Degué was founded by David Guéron (1892 – 1950) and began the production of art glass (in addition to tableware and other functional glass) after the successful Paris 1925 Exhibition. In addition to the glassworks he also opened a gallery at 41, Avenue de Paris to promote the art glass he named “Degué”. His earlier cameo glass designs leaned heavily toward natural motifs – then latterly the more Art Deco geometric motifs. His glass designs were both acid cut and etched as well as sandblasted. As was relatively common at the time, Guéron copied the Art Deco designs of Charles Schneider amongst others. The resultant litigation lasted for six years, until 1932 when the case was settled out of court. Both companies were financially devastated as a result.
