Occasionally, I'll uncover something which I have never seen before. I will know nothing about its age, maker, or place of origin. I'll have no intellectual reference by which to value it. But I will recognize something of quality—and a little voice which says, "Don't put this back." This bowl is just such an item. I found it at a house auction in nearby Ohio. It is clearly Modernist in design. The weight of the crystal and the quality of the hand-cutting are superb. And the peach colored crystal is sublime. Is it something from the Modernist Period? Or is it something made—indeed, well made—recently (or even today)? I'm not a glass expert, nevertheless, I acquired the piece. Whether it's recent or vintage, I am proud to show it on the LEO Design website—and am content to live with it should no one else like it as much as I do. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
