About this piece of art

The so called "Bevrijdingsvaasje", liberation vase, from 1945. A real collectors gadget. They were made in large numbers, mechanically by pressing them into a mould. This was done at the N.V. Nederlandsche Glasfabriek Leerdam to the design of artistic director and chief designer Andries Copier.

During the occupation (German occupation in the Second World War), Leerdam glassblowers had to make orange tail lights for the occupying forces' vehicles. The story goes that in spare moments, they made orange vases for their own use. These little artworks stood as silent resistance in the windowsills.
