Glashüttenwerk Peill und Sohn was founded in 1903 in Düren, a small town in West Germany. Peill und Sohn merged with Putzler in 1947 as a glass works and lighting company and became Peill + Putzler Glashüttenwerke. The company always worked with important designers such as Wilhelm Wagenfeld, William Brown, Helmut Demary, Aloys Ferdinand Gangkofner, Horst Tüselmann and many others. This elongated domed glass form is a great example of their work. Made from a translucent glass with white a bubble detailing all over. It produces a lovely mottled light and casts some really nice shadows too. The pair are in great condition with few signs of their age.
