Jose Cire Cirera Royo Enameled Blue Glass Elephant
$100.00 plus shipping
This is a beautiful blue hand painted art glass elephant enameled in rich colors like peach, pink, red, blue, yellow, and coral. The way the top edge is shaped it looks like it might have been made as a cigar holder, but looks unused. It is outlined in bright gold gilding. It is marked Royo. The research that I have done on this art glass piece says it was made by Jose Cirera (or Cire) Royo a Catalan artist of Catalonia Spain. The glass itself most likely from Gordiola Glass Works. The signature is bright and crisp. Most say this is circa 1920 to 1960, but they are not sure exactly. It measures 3 inches tall and 4.25 inches long. It is in excellent condition, no chips, no cracks, and very little, if any wear to the enamel. This is an auction item so I don't know the exact time it was purchased.
