This monumental 3 dimensional French Faience vase lamp base dates late 19th century and is attributed to Emile Galle'. My client's husband, now passed, a major collector purchased this vase as a Emile Galle' years ago but has misplaced or lost the original information. Emile Galle' was a botanist as well as an artist and loved incorporating flowers and greenery into his art. He worked in ceramics as well as glass and furniture. I have not taken the lamp apart at the base to see if it is signed for fear of damaging the full relief poppies.

The type of ceramic is French Faience with slip formed 3 dimensional poppies (called French Barbotine) and leaves on a rich white faience (tin glazed, like majolica) bulbous monumental pottery vase. Emile Galle commonly used slip relief decoration on his ceramics. It is in very fine condition. One flower and surrounding leaf has been reconstructed from the original pieces by a master conservation specialist who works with museum pieces. If you black light the restoration of the one poppy you will be able to see the restoration. It is the smaller lower flower on pictures 1 and 2 and the closeup #12. the vase is 19" high with lamp piece, 15"-15.5" high vase, 15"-16" across. The base is encased in the metal base so I can't say if it is signed or not. The lamp needs rewiring, we did not tough that part of the lamp. It is monumental and will need specialty packaging.

This vase is a very rare and gorgeous Art Nouveau piece of French Barbotine art at its finest, we are proud to present it.
