Fantastic 19th Century Baccarat Acid Cut Back Cameo Glass Ewer - Museum Quality
Beautiful c.1900 acid cut back cameo glass ewer featuring beautiful cameo glass and enameled flowers on the front as well as back of the piece, with a Martele hammered background. The flowers are acid cut, and enameled in beautiful, transparent almost water color like polychrome enamels. Large polished pontils on the base. This is in super condition! I've taken lots of photos, I'll let the photos speak for the vase, it's really a spectacular piece.
See the book "Baccarat, Editions Du Regard, by Curtis & Nansent" for similar examples of Baccarat cameo glass. This wonderful book was published in cooperation with the Baccarat factory and museum in Paris. Although I believe this vase was made by Baccarat, I couldn't find an exact match, lots of similar work, but similar work was also done by Val St Lambert, and other like high quality glass houses who produced Art Nouveau cameo glass.
Size - ~ 10" tall, polished pontil.
In excellent antique condition with no chips, cracks or other issues.
