Can You Handle These?

An unlikely pairing resulted in this perfect pair. Famed German artist Walter Giers (known for electronic art - a sort of German Dan Flavin) designed these Bauhausian fruit bowls mid-century for a renown firm called Erhard & Söhne. They are another one of those 19th Century companies that prevailed and flourished in the 20th century, actually holding the world's original patent for brass inlay. By the late 60s or early 70s these smoked glass and brass creations were made for the stylish masses.
Bowls Diameters measure 8.5" and 6.5" repectively
