Falcon Ware 3D Crystal Cluster Diamond Planter, 1950s-60s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available for pickup at our Oakville location.
This chicly prismatic work of mid-century Atomic design is by Falcon Ware (est. 1885 - 1964). The form of this piece is made up of stylized crystals, arranged in three even tessellated layers and across four sides into one overall diamond shape. This form reflects the Atomic Age design influence of the times that this piece was crafted in. Atomic Age (atomic science) design had become so popular that it became part of architectural, industrial design, commercial design, interior design, and fine arts.
Similar to the stylized form mimicking the structure of crystals, the applied running gloss glaze décor also echoes this. The satin-matt glaze is a silky application of a Peach-toned Caramel brown and as each ridge is 3-dimensional, every angle you turn the planter to casts a slightly different effect to the overall piece.
This statement piece is stylistically timeless and makes an excellent display piece on its own or functionally as a planter. The combination of the design, colour palette, glaze application and condition makes it a rare find.
