The firm of Etling, founded by Edmond Laurent Etling, was based in Paris at 29, Rue de Paradis - retailing high quality exclusive decorative items during the 1920's and 1930's. Etling was one of the most active editors of sculpture, glass and ceramics in the inter-war years. Although better known today for their glass, Etling commissioned items in a range of materials - which were sold from the shop in Rue de Paradis. Etling closed in 1940 during WW2. Edmond Etling and his family were transported to a concentration camp where they died. The company's entire output was in the Art Deco style of the interwar period. They are noted for innovative designs and are highly desirable collector's items. For more information on Etling visit our Maker's History pages.

The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There is a tiny "fleabite" to the rim of the lid (virtually impossible to see and too small to be able to photograph but mentioned here as part of its comprehensive description). Slight roughness to inside rim of base which is from its original moulding. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
