'Comet' vase

A simple glass with a textured design.

Cut glass, designed by William Wilson for James Powell & Sons (Whitefriars) Ltd, Wealdstone, Middlesex, about 1934-37

The abstract design of a comet on this cut-glass vase reflects the Art Deco movement's interest in the constellations and space. Such themes are often found represented in the art forms of the 1920s and 1930s.
