Verreries and Cristalleries of Saint-Denis, Legras and Cie
Beatiful vase "Volga", marbled red glass with gold flower handpainting.
This vase is fabulous because of this color marbled showing the veins of this stone. The red got many reflections clear and dark. The painting is also beautiful: the gold is very shiny and go well with the red.
I think this serie was showing at the Exposition Universelle of Paris of 1889 where the stand of Legras showed lots of red glass vases.
I bought it for 15 euros. This one is one of my favorites :)
