An extremely fine & rare trio of glass vessels by Guido Balsamo Stella for the S.A.L.I.R. (Studio Ars Labor Industrie Riunite) of Italy. Balsamo Stella created this suite for one of the Venice Biennales of the 1930s and the works are a testament to the very delicate workmanship of the designer & the S.A.L.I.R.
His illustrations of the ocean and space are typical of the Novecento Italiano movement; both classical and whimsical. Stella was exhibited by the Werkstatte and worked with Franz Pelzel to produce his designs.
