Chrysler Museum of Art presents Masterpieces of Cameo Glass from the Chrysler Collection

Chrysler Museum of Art presents Masterpieces of Cameo Glass from the Chrysler Collection, an exhibition on view through DEC 30, 2012. featuring several pieces considered to be among the very finest of the craft.


Dragon Bowl In The Chinese Taste Thomas Webb & Sons 1885 Mold blown glass

The Dragon Vase, an elegant Thomas Webb blue and white cameo glass in Chinese taste, features aspects done in unusually high relief.

George and Thomas Woodall’s cameo glass plaque Intruders is unequivocally one of the greatest cameo glass masterpieces of the 19th century. George Woodall succeeded in creating the illusion of perspective in an amazingly shallow space (the distance between the rim and the back is less than inch).

The star of the show is John Northwood’s acclaimed Milton Vase. This high neck vase with handles is carved in high relief with images based on Milton’s ”Paradise Lost.”
