Early Trial sample Isle of Wight Studio Glass Wild Garden large open bowl - signed & dated
Designed by Timothy Harris of Isle of Wight Studio Glass.
This auction is for a trial or experimental sample, which was never intended for public sale but held in the Museum Cabinet at IOWSG until early this year when liquidation meant it had to be sold.
This is large open, footed bowl which measures 5.5" (14 cms) tall by approx. 6.25" (16 cms) across the top diameter. It weighs 0.75 kilo unboxed.
The Wild Garden Collection went on to be designed in several different colours. This early trial is multicoloured - with various shades of pink and blue flowers, with a liberal amount of gold leaf added to give an iridescent finish. The base is green and it has a pink top rim. On the side is the Isle of Wight Glass gold label.
Signed on the base 'Timothy Harris, Isle of Wight Glass England, 2003'.
This is a really impressive piece of Studio Glass and is in absolutely mint condition.
