Claude Morin Art Glass Vases
« on: February 17, 2007, 10:20:56 PM »
A few years ago I was lucky enough to find a Jean Claude Novaro Glass Bowl or Coupe at a local auction, a few months later I also found a very tall large Novaro perfume type bottle which also came with a number of other Vases, 3 of the Vases were all signed Morin and dated about 1982, one being nicer than the other 2 various colours and gold, the other 2 were relegated to the garden shed as just  some 1980's art glass, I have just recently been trying to research the Morin ones , I believe he is Claude Morin and works in France, from the small amount of information I have found on the internet I beginning to think he maybe quite famous or collected, also did he have any links with Jean Claude Novaro and is he a collectable name, are they worth keeping or should I sell them

regards roy

Claude and Florence Morin are seen here as significant members of the studio glass movement, alongside Novaro and,the Monods at Biot.

The date is mid period, studio set up in 1969, and Claude and Florence may have retired in the early 1990's, as the studio was /is? run by a son.


As to collectability. you need to ask the studio glass collectors..... and as usual, I do not comment on possible value.

The pinkish jam-jar vase looks to be exquisite... can you do a picture on a plain background, it is very hard to make out even the colour.
