    This Legras vase dates to about 1890-1910, and is a bit different from other more commonly seen Legras shapes - it is pleasingly short and plump. :) It is 5-3/4" tall, with a cut rim and no pontil, and it depicts in enamel the Fuller's Teasel, Dipsacus fullonum, which was very important in England (and I am sure other European wool-producing countries) as its heads were used to full woven wool cloth before the invention of metal-teethed fulling machines. This plant seems to have been a popular Art Nouveau motif in France; I have seen it used quite a few times by Legras, as well as by Baccarat.

      Lovely detail on this vase, and the transparency gives shadow and depth.

      Thank you so much, sklo. I really like how there are so many different details all around the vase; I agree with your comment about the transparency. :)

      Love the soft curvaceous shape of this one....:-)

      Thank you, inky! I like this shape, too - I haven't seen another like it, yet.

      Rick, thank you! I almost wonder if this could have been part of a biscuit jar because it is so plump and round. :)

      Hmmmm "so plump and round"? Sounds like my mom-in-law! No, I'm just joking She's quite thin and a lovely lady :) I couldn't help myself. LOL!

      You are too funny, Rick! I am glad you have a good MIL - luckily, I do, too! :)
