Higgins Studio Glass Charger Classic Line In White and Gold 12 1/2 MINT

Higgins Studio Glass Charger - Classic Line In White and Gold - 12 1/2 - MINT. Original handmade plate, signed Higgins, circa 1950's.

Michael and Frances Higgins, who met at the Chicago Institute of Design, were pioneers in glass fusing, or glass sandwich. A design is created on a piece of enamel-coated glass. Over this, another piece of enameled glass is laid. The pieces are then placed on a mold and heated. Under heat, the glass "slumps" to the shape of the mold.

The design itself is fused between the outer glass pieces, with additional layers adding to the texture and color.. Originally the Studio operated out of their Chicago apartment until 1957 when it was relocated as a result of a partnership with Dearborn Glass Company of Chicago. Michael died in 1999 and Francis in 2004. This plate has a Classic Line design of White and Gold.

It is 3/4" in height and 12 1/2" in diameter. It is MINT, no chips, flakes, hairlines or repairs. It is a beautiful unusual example of their work. We guarantee our pieces as described. Please call, us with any questions. A Layaway program is also available.
