60's Glass, on the comeback
Partly due to shows like Mad Men and the age of the boomers, anything 60's is making a comeback. Starburst clocks, straight legged tables, those ugly curtains...it's all coming back. Here is a full set of hard to find caged glass or imprisoned glass cocktail set. These were designed and hand blown by Mexico City artist Felipe Derflingher. The basic shapes were formed with brass, tin, silver or alloy and then the glass was blown inside to fill the voids. Heavy and practical, maybe not the most delicate looking set, these are hard to find. Sooner glass and chalet glass, those organic free form colored desk top glass ornaments are also hot again. These start in the $80 range and may be a good investment.
