Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
During the 1930s, while America’s economy languished in the Great Depression, Chase Brass & Copper Co., Inc., commissioned designers such as Walter von Nessen and Russel Wright to create new products in the modernist style in an effort to boost sales. This bud vase by Chase is from that era, though the designer is not known. Composed of chrome cylinders of varying length, the form of the vase evokes both the stepbacks of art deco skyscrapers and the sleek, unadorned machine components that so fascinated designers of the time.

The vase has four sections to accommodate a flower.

Measures 9 inches high, 3 1/2 inches diameter of foot. Underside stamped ‘CHASE USA’ with company logo.

Overall condition is good. Minor surface wear, with a few light scratches to the base; one cylindrical section has a small spot on the surface. It is not a loss to the chrome plating.

This listing is for one vase--the second vase and Chase tray by Walter von Nessen shown in the last image is not included with this vase.
