1 litre Teapot, Jena Therm
Designed in 1932, Manufactured by Jena Glas
Price: £POA SOLD
The Wagenfeld Teapot is one of the most iconic designs of the 20th century, simple and elegant, it would perfectly complement any contemporary or Modernist inspired kitchens. It is in many design collections throughout the world including MOMA in New York and the V&A in London. Taking advantage of Jena's new laboratory grade boroscilicate glass developed for strength, heat resistance, Wagenfeld was able to employ delicacy to utility glass design. Wagenfeld's aim was to create an object where beauty and harmony of proportion was determined by its functionality.
After the partition of Germany, the Americans relocated a proportion of the Jena Glas company staff to Mainz in West Germany where they built a new factory. The teapot on offer was manufactured in the original Jena glassworks in the 1950's which was by now under Communist control. Both glassworks, Jena in the East, and Mainz had the rights to produce the same pre-war designs.
This item is in excellent condition no chips, hairline cracks or any other damage to the glass.
Mould blown boroscilicate glass in three parts: teapot, diffuser and lid.
Professor Wilhelm Wagenfeld, 1900-1990, is noted for his severe interpretation and unwavering commitment to the social and aesthetic ideals of the Modern Movement. He prolifically designed utilitarian objects for WMF in Germany, mainly flatware and glassware, and also a range of architectural glass lighting for Lindner.
