This miniature glass vase contains a floral motif. Deep red flowers rest upon a frosted glass background. The shape of the vase is delightful – a wide base thins out near the bottom before widening again at the top. The red glass is handled beautifully with all of the details of each blossom fully preserved. Every petal and pistil are visible. The solid red wine color at the base complements the open top. This magnificent vase dates to c. 1920 and is signed Galle. Galle was the foremost French cameo glass artist of the Art Nouveau period.
