Drawing, Designs for Tall Flower Glasses, Ashtrays, Table Ornament

This is a Drawing. We acquired it in 1958. Its medium is graphite on tracing paper, lined. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

The three designs for glass objects featured in this drawing are depicted in life-size. They strongly resemble objects from Lobmeyr’s famed "Ambassador" set and may have also been used in conjunction with Miss Agnes Miles Carpenter’s custom order. Several prominent and varied designers are affiliated with this drawing, underscoring the nexus of creative activity in Vienna and cross-media design collaborations at this time.

  • Ambassador Vase, 1926
  • mould-blown crystal ("muslin glass").
  • Museum purchase through gift of Georgiana L. McClellan.
  • 1958-98-42
