Vase (USA), 1928

This is a Vase. It was designed by Ilonka Karasz and manufactured by Paye & Baker Manufacturing Company. It is dated 1928 and we acquired it in 1993. Its medium is silver-plated metal. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Ilonka Karasz developed designs by beginning with a form and appending new elements. Here, a cone is altered by the addition of four triangular planes creating a cross-formed base. Karasz utilized these simple geometric components for a variety of objects characterized by planes and smooth surfaces.

It is credited Museum purchase from Decorative Arts Association Acquisition and General Acquisitions Endowment Funds.
