"Rearing Pegasus," Classic Art Deco Engraved Glass Vase, Waugh for Steuben


Highly rare and beautifully detailed, this high style Art Deco vase features a rearing Pegasus figure, his rear hooves resting in the clouds, designed by Sidney Waugh for the legendary Steuben glassworks in New York. This design was introduced two years after the landmark Gazelle Bowl designed by Waugh in 1935, which ushered in an era of extremely Fine glass production characterized by heavy glass free of tint or color. This vase represents the finest Art Deco engraved glass of the 1930s, equal to the work done at Orrefors in Sweden and Lobmeyr in the Czech Republic.
