This work is an extraordinary example of the authority of the Feder's house in the design and mastery of Mexican glass artisans of the last century. Its large proportions, coupled with its modern brutalist design and the magnificent effect (four layers) of light that is created passing not only through orange crystals on its front and sides but through the metal latticework that adorns its back all make this piece something truly spectacular. Perhaps the most complex, intricate work by Feder's that we have seen and in perfect condition!
The Feder's house, with more than 150 years of tradition, was established in the City of Cuernavaca by the Derflingher family, of German descent. For decades Felipe Derflingher took advantage of the expertise of Mexican artisans to create pieces of extreme brutalist modernity; its multi-colored crystals, as well as the Mexican spirit in its designs, have made Feder's pieces famous.
