    This Legras vase stands 10" tall, and has a tricorn crimped rim. It features enamel work that is very typical of Legras - thick enameling of the flowers and leaves, accompanied by very fine detailed enamel work that was applied by transfer. You can best see this detailing in image 3. (I believe the flowers are supposed to be a type of Witch Hazel, or Hamamelis.)

      I really see why you collect enamel glass. The pieces you have are so beautiful.
    2. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 6 years ago
      racer4racer, thank you so much for your kind comment! I am so lucky to have been able to find these; I think Legras vases are becoming an addiction for me! :) There is just so much variety, and the colors are so beautiful.

      So! beautiful..just love their enamelling..would be very easy to collect just these..:-)
    4. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 6 years ago
      Thank you, inky! A problem I have with French glass is that so far, most of the pieces I have are over 10" tall - some much taller! They take up a lot of room compared to many of my Bohemian pieces - I am in trouble! ;)

      Yes you are, but the trouble is beautiful. ;-)

      Gorgeous again.....but you won't be in REAL trouble until you've exhausted the space on top of your cabinets/units:)

      Lovely vase Michelle! I can almost feel the thickness of the enameling!
    9. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 5 years ago
      Sklo, I think I am in danger of that happening! ;) Thank you!

      Thank you, Rick - I appreciate it. I love Legras' use of thick enameling with the much finer detail work; the contrast can be very effective.
