Gallé 3 Color Cameo Art Glass Vase - image 1 of 7

This lovely Gallé vase is a three color cameo glass art piece, featuring an array of leaves, branches and flowers in pink, fuchsia and cream. The vase measures 6-1/2 inches tall by 3 inches at the base, 2-1/2 at the middle and 1-1/2 at the mouth opening. It has a seductive organic form, as was the fashion during the Art Nouveau period. The clear body of this vessel has an internal layer of pink glass that creates a nice frosted aura, which shifts with the lighting conditions. The flowers and the leaves are a darker color, with a fuchsia that complements the softer background tones. The cameo glass layers receive acid etched cuttings to give the form and details of the design. The form of the vase is of sinuous bulbous lines, perfect for a small bouquet or a decorative vase in the home. It is signed in Gallé's trademark cursive script at the lower part of the vase. The vase has a fire polish, with the darker color of fuchsia having a slight shine to it.

This Gallé cameo glass vase is a fine example of French Art Nouveau decorative art. During the European Art Nouveau period Emile Gallé was one of the most innovative artists working in glass. At the turn of the century he was a renowned and influential artist, who had exhibited at the Paris World's Fair and had won several awards. This piece is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. Circa 1910.
