Description

Glasmalerei Geyling was a celebrated Viennese glassmaking factory with a particular expertise in manufacturing painted glass. The firm was established by Carl Geyling in 1841, and the firm quickly found international fame, exhibiting at important nineteenth-century expositions such as the 1851 Great Exhibition in London—where Carl was the recipient of a medal.

The present set is comprised of three pieces: a central, landscape-form window, and a pair of flanking windows in portrait format. Each window is painted with exceptionally delicate polychrome landscape scenes of nature, featuring lakes, distant mountains, waterlilies, abundant flowers, and bountiful fauna such as birds, butterflies, insects, dragonflies, and frogs. The surrounding borders feature green and red glass edging detailed with white and honey brown butterflies as well as flowers, all interspersed with turquoise faceted panels.

One window: Height 83cm, width 117cm, depth 2cm
Two windows: Height 139cm, width 55cm, depth 2cm
