20th Century Decorative Arts


Marius Ernest Sabino was a french Art Deco glass artist.

He was an Italian-born Parisian who attended L’Ecole National des Arts Decoratifs and the Beaux Arts de Paris.
He won numerous prizes in Europe for his art and was awarded the Knight of the Legion d’Honneur for his contributions to French art and industry.
Sabino experimented with glass and by 1925 he had created his own chemical formula for opalescent glass. The result is that in low light the glass often appears white or bluish like ice in a glacier, but with brighter or more direct light, many of the pieces turn a subtle golden color. As if by magic.
His work was shown on the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in 1925.
