ICONIC EARLY 1930s ART DECO BOHEMIAN CRYSTAL DECANTER BY KARL PALDA. Distinctive barware products of Palda glassworks are widely acclaimed as best of class. His technically demanding sharp geometric forms blown of thick colorless crystal are embellished with flashed bands of color in engraved line borders. The best Palda decanters incorporate stylized floral motifs with copper wheel cut and frosted centers. This imposing spirit decanter with handsome stopper, opaque black, translucent amber and ruby colors, and fine proportions is an unusually large example (9.5 high, 3.0 cup capacity).
Critical examination reveals quality design, attention to detail and supreme craftsmanship. A veritable tour de force!
