There’s a lot of Kryptonite out there at the moment 🦠 but check out in the background this amazing ‘Vase of the Arts’🏺by Carrier-Belleuse and Christofle, used as a prop in Lex Luther’s flooded subway lair in the 1978 Superman film. As the mansions of the Gilded Age emptied in the early 20th century, the big studios like Warner Bros, Universal etc. bought many great works of art and used them as props. Another vase like this is in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Superman example could be the one with @galerieneuse ? #vase #kryptonite #arts #carrierbelleuse #christofle #vasedesarts #superman #lexluthor #universalstudios #props #warnerbros
