Medium cut glass vase with flower pattern. Stuart Crystal mark to the base. Attributed to John Luxton. Luxton did not sign his pieces but the cut circles and lenses are consistent with his style.
This piece is reminiscent of the earlier style of Charles Rennie Macintosh. His work became popular again and was much copied in Britain in the 1980s and 90s. We would date this piece to then.
John Luxton (1920-2013) Trained as a designer in Stourbridge and then at the Royal College of Art. He worked at Stuart and Sons in Stourbridge from 1948 until retirement in 1985. He also produced some designs as a consultant for them in the 1990s. He specialised in cut glass designs and developed a modern, contemporary style of circles, lenses and elliptical shapes that give his work a modern feel. Most of the designs done at Stuart after the Second World War are attributed to him unless there is a known other designer. His work is now starting to get the recognition it deserves.
