This is a French art glass vase. The vase is not signed. The maker is from the Daum region of glassmakers. The date is circa 1920.
The vase is 5” high and 2 ½” wide.
The interior glass is yellow-brown. The glass overlay is blue. The cameo design is one of sailing ships on water, and the ships sail around the circumference of the vase on the blue water. The ships have more layers of blue glass. The water has less blue glass, with some layers left to give the effect of water ripples.
I took the first four photos with a light behind the vase so that you can see how pretty the glass is when it is lighted.
The ships are quite detailed. There are ripples in the blue water, which is a cameo effect that the French glass makers were skilled at producing.
The rim is polished flat. The bottom is flat. Some of the yellow-brown glass shows through on the bottom.
There are no chips, nicks, or cracks other than a pinprick nick on the rim, which is difficult to see and cannot be felt. The bottom shows some wear.
