This charming mid-century piece with its romantically moody Steel blue is crafted from Lucite (also known as Plexiglas). Lucite became widely available in the late 1930s as a lightweight alternative to glass and this particular piece is cool to touch as glass is as well as ringing with glass-like tones when gently tapped.
The footed form of this piece is well-balanced and functionally versatile, and also lends itself to excellent refractions. Crafted in a cool-toned Steel blue, it is further decorated with an overlay of handpainted sweeping and swirling bands in Lemon yellow and Tangerine Orange.
This retro Modernist piece will make an excellent accent piece to a room with similarly themed Mid Century, Modernist or Retro decor.
