Daum - A square glass vase finely decorated with acid etched and enamelled flowers and leaves (Branche fleurie de Phlox Paniculata rouge). The glass vase uses the intercalaire technique with the inclusion of coloured flecks or streaks of glass between the layers of glass. This technique was pioneered by the Daum factory in 1899. The enamelled red flowers and leaves are very finely detailed and are shown on 3 sides of the vase. One side of the vase has only flower buds and leaves.The vase is signed in cameo Daum Nancy and with the Cross of Lorraine. It is French made between 1896 and 1900 and in excellent original condition. A beautiful example of this work.
A similar vase is illustrated on page 217 Guiseppe Cappa Le Genie Verrier de l'Europe
