Here is an authentic antique art glass bud vase by the French maker Galle from the turn of the century. The acid cut back method of glass making shows the very pretty vibrant green color from the molded light golden color that we typically find in his work.
It measures approximately 5 1/2" x 3" x 2". About 6 1/4" around the bottom bulbous part. It is without chips or cracks, but there are spots of abrasions on the glass as seen in the photos. All of the photos which were taken with a flash to show everything. These abrasions could be polished out, but I have not taken it in for that and leave it to the next owner to do. So, instead of it being a $900 or more piece of art glass, the price reflects these imperfections.
You see in the last photo it photographed with another Galle that may or may not still be available in my shop, and you see the etching is very similar to this bud vase, however the shape and coloring is different.
French in origin, circa late 1800s.
