Striking Art Deco moulded frosted glass vase by Sars, France c1925. Geometric design across its amber coloured glass body. Moulded signature to its base. The vase measures 30.5 cm in height.
The village of Sars-Poteries in northern France once had two glassworks employing up to 800 people. Owned by Henri Imbert, they thrived for over a century from 1802 – becoming known for making milky-glass flasks and ornaments, which are now collectors' pieces. Global recession together with the growing mechanisation of glass-making resulted in financial difficulties and the halting of production in 1937 - a halt which proved to be permanent, devastating the local economy. Today the museum “MusVerre” is built on the site of Chateau Imbert, the former owner’s home.
