ROSES ON GILDED VASE by LEON LEDRU of Val St. Lambert depicts sculpted Roses etched into a guided gold-bronze patina on deep cobalt blue hand-blown crystal. The vase is acid-etched with a bronze patina encrustation that does not tarnish and tests 7-9 Karat Gold on my digital gold tester. The background design has an angular Oriental influence. Execution on the overlay and definition between leaves is crisp and exact.
