This vase came from the Collector's Fair here in Sydney about eight months ago. The dealer had no idea about it and had decided to sell it off cheaply. I couldn't resist it. I had no idea about its identity and eight months later I have a better idea thanks to one of the Glasshounds Erik from Belgium. He suggested that it could well be by Baccarat. Greatsnowyowl has suggested Harrach.
I love the Orientalism of the Japonaise enamel insects and the floral decor. The rigaree around the lip of the vase has blue iridescence and I like the trailed decoration down the neck as well.
Another French item for the Quatorze?
Or an item from the Erlaucht Graf Harrach'schen?
Big and chunky!
