hi, this is probably the major piece of my art glass collection. a great art nouveau glass vase with gold and enamel patinas. antique greek pattern, with acid etched pattern. I've found some of pieces from BURGUN & SCHWERER ( meisenthal glassworks) , who who where very close, one had also the same pattern but not in the same. I call the ancien director of it glasswork but he dident get the model in the catalogues.
i think this the modele could be made in the periode 1885-1900 but it is a total mystery... maybe a few models made for some international exibition...
H 20 cm. signed on the base vallerysthal.
well, the mystery is solved, i've just by DESIRE CHISTIAN' book , the signature used is from1890 - 1898.
the acid etched pattern in greek antique styule is inspired by the illustrations of WALTER CRANE.
