ETLING Opalescent Art Glass Madonna with Child Statue with original fitted and lighted base, circa 1930s. Edmond Laurent Etling founded his business around 1909, his shop was located at. 29 Rue de Paradis in Paris France.
With obvious great vision and instinct for desired style, his retail business became very admired and respected for its innovated and high-quality designs which were produced in an array of mediums. Along with having his own.
Team of glass-workers which were based at the Cristalleries et Verreries de Choisy-le-Roi Réunies (in the outskirts of Paris), he also. Designs from some of the top freelance designers & artist of the period.
Apart from grey or frosted glass, much of Etling's glassware was made of opalescent glass. Edmond Etling was without doubt one of the key players in the Art Deco movement.
On an interesting yet very sad note, being Jewish resulted with Etling, his entire family and his glass workers all being rounded-up and sent to Nazi concentration camps where they met their deaths during WWII. Referred to as St Therese or Madonna with Child, this is really a beautiful Art Deco Period piece and.The rarest of all versions (large child). The nice detailing and deep opalescent glow give it an elegant and graceful persona which is only further enhanced upon the lighted base. The statue is properly signed. ETLING FRANCE with molded marks. 12½ tall by 4½ at widest (statue in base).
The figure alone measures approx. 10¾ tall by 3 at widest. She is in Excellent condition, free of any cracks or repairs with minimal age-related wear; only able to find one minuscule nick/chigger on robe and some lite wear on the bottom rim that sits in base.
