Boom Rupel glass factory, bonbonnière, ca. 1935.
Ø 17 cm H 15 cm
We present to you a hyalieth black glass bonbonnière with lid, made by the Boomse Rupel glass factory, Belgium during the Art Deco period and designed by the well-known chief designer from Bohemia Paul Heller. A spreading round box is created on a flat round base. After a few centimeters there is a shiny gold band after which the corpus indents and changes into a vertical border. The corresponding lid fits in this. The round lid is gradually reduced in height to end in a knob-shaped handle. At the bottom we see a gilded band and most striking in its middle part is a double frieze of hand-painted gilded large and smaller semicircular discs. The top of the handle is also gold plated. At the bottom of the base, the bonbonnière is marked in gilt handwriting with a sort of “A” or “V” ??. May be dated around 1935.
