Amalric Walter and Henri Bergé "Flying Fish" Pâte de Verre Vide-Poche Glass Dish
A ravishing compromise between the Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles, this hexagonal pâte de verre vide poche by Amalric Walter and Henri Bergé features a strong architectural shape softened by a lush vortex of pastel colors. A flying fish with raised spine and rigid ribbing on its splayed fins swims languidly through a shallow pool of aqua ripples and speckled kelly green kelp, its body twisting into a serpentine "S," perfectly filling the space within the hexagonal form.
