Amalric Walter and Henri Bergé "Crabe" Pâte de Verre Vide-Poche Glass Dish
This French Art Deco "Crabe" pâte de verre vide-poche, by Amalric Walter and Henri Bergé, features a hexagonal tray with a lovely crustacean as its centerpiece, replete in all its knobbly details, including deep, rich coloration in hues of red and brown and accents of bright yellow. The crab looks up sedately at the viewer just as its body seems to tense against the the pulling, swirling depths of the pool expertly rendered in the dish.
