WMF Art Deco Small Ikora Glass Bowl with Concentric Bands c.1930
REF: GL213 / LA318681
Unusual WMF Art Deco small Ikora glass bowl designed by Karl Wiedmann c1930s. Glass bowl with broad rim and deep central bowl. Very attractively decorated in concentric rings of veined and fissured ambers and reds, also with opalescent green to the central bowl. Concentric rings set in a ground of veined cream coloured glass over clear glass - difficult to capture in images. Graduated green band at the rim. The bowl is 18 cm in diameter and 5 cm in height. WMF started making glass in 1883 when a glass house was built at Geisslingen near Stuttgart to produce their own glass inserts. The original 1883 glass house was destroyed during the First World War and a new, more modern facility opened in 1922. The young glass designer Karl Wiedmann perfected the technique of iridized surfaces and the resulting "MYRA"- Kristall entered production in 1926. The same year also saw the beginning of the first "IKORA" glass - reputedly discovered by accident whilst correcting a Myra glass piece. Both Myra and Ikora glass continued to be produced until around 1936, when production of art-glass ceased. Because of the technique used, combining colours and treatments, each Ikora piece is unique.
