Antique Glass Canes

Today I am looking at antique glass canes.  I saw an auction television show last night that showed antique glass walking canes.  I immediately knew that I had to search the internet to find more.

Are they canes or walking sticks?  Either way, how versatile are these lovely canes?

Wall art?  A collection of these canes could be used as a wall art collection or as a display in a tall umbrella stand.

fashion accessory?  I would love to see a fashion show with the models all walking the runway with glass walking canes.  Think of all the color and pattern options!

Ha! I will be at High Point Market next week.  I am thinking that I could use a good decorative glass cane for long days on my feet :-)

Today I am getting my Paris fashion couture on…

Paris Glass Hat, photo by Phil Oh

I know, I can’t believe it, either.  It is a glass hat.  Hold it, something is fishy here (haha) …

It seems to me that glass would be a bit heavy, don’t you agree?  Plexi or Lexan?  If it is in fact, a glass hat, She must have a very strong neck and the part that fits her head must be super glued on.

Anyway, Kudos! I applaud the creativity and I think that the fish are lovely!

I found this photo on the Pleasurephoto blog.  The photo was taken by photographer, Phil Oh.  Phil has a site, Street Peeper that features all kinds of fashion shots taken on the street.

Asa Jungnelius was born in Stockholm and has been retained by Kosta Boda as a designer since 2007.  She is fascinated by  the way the value of an object is created and what it conveys about us and our world. She is continually challenging the establishment by questioning the structural norms of society. The resulting creations are razor sharp comments.  Her art spans a wide spectrum, covering issues such as aesthetic hierarchies, fashion, shopping, decadence and construction of gender.
