This is a lovely little cameo glass stick vase, made by Emile Gallé in France in the early 20th century. This one is a miniature version, made in two colors. The base glass is milky clear and the acid etched cameo depicts a beautiful design of branches, leaves, floral buds, and blooms in a deep, amethyst purple. This sweet little piece is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
Its minute form measures 3 1/2" tall, 2 1/8" in diameter at the bottom of the foot, and the vase mouth is 3/4" in diameter. The "Gallé" signature is in cameo as pictured.
