Sabino

Marius Ernest Sabino (1878-1961) was born in Italy in 1878. He was an Italian-born Parisian who attended the Ecole National des Arts Decoratifs and the Beaux Arts de Paris. He won numerous awards in Europe for his art and was awarded the Knight of the Legion of Honor for his contributions to French art and industry. Sabino experimented with glass and developed his own chemical formula for opalescent glass in 1925. The result is that in low light the glass often appears white or bluish like ice in a glacier, but in brighter or more direct light many of the pieces take on a subtle golden color. As if by magic. Ernest Sabino died in 1961.
