Wonderful, handmade water/wine glasses designed by Richard Süssmuth (1900-74), a glassmaker and designer whose life spans the modernist period.

5 glasses in original box.

The son of a glass cutter, Süssmuth work can be seen to have two clear periods - art and crafts; and Bauhaus influenced modernism. These glasses are the latter - wonderfully weighted, with a perfect modernist outline.

He studied at Dresden Arts & Crafts Academy, and his later work is influenced by Deutsche Werkbund, and the Bauhaus aesthetic of simple form and functionality.

Highly collectible, Richard Süssmuth’s work is in most collections in large design museums in the West.

A beautiful piece of design. Originally bought from Heals, of London. And in its original packaging.

Tumblers: 8cm tall x 8cm (all approx)

The glasses are in perfect, sparkling crystal glass, unused condition, the box is well used with obvious signs of wear.
