Cameo glass from Cristallerie de LaVillette is exceedingly rare, and was not produced in large numbers. It is usually found marked as "deVez", "Mont Joye", or "Pantin". All are signatures of the same company, however the styles tend to be different.
This particular lamp should be of great interest to collectors of turn-of-the-century cameo glass for a variety of reasons. It is quite tall at 14 inches, but the girth is wide enough to display a plethora of leaves and flowers. The base color of the vase is a remarkable blue color, which glows brilliantly under a black light. A second layer of soft brown highlights the features, displaying the technical expertise of the acid-etching workers of the Pantin craftsmen. When the lamp is illuminated, the depth of the colors and design become almost mesmerizing.
This lamp represents a mature talent in the production of French cameo glass at it's best. It is properly marked "deVez" in raised letters above the base. Perfect to display from all angles!
Exceptional lamp in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. Dimensions are below.
