A heavy French vase from Daum Frères of Nancy, France.
It has a great form for use with or without flowers.
The second photo shows the etched signature to the edge of the base.

Many thanks to PARIS1925 for the THIRTIES attribution.

Mystery Solved

    Thanks for the comment Bellin68.

    Not so far. I think the signature is much earlier than I had previously thought. When I bought it I thought it was from the fifties.

    Thanks again to ozmarty, BELLIN68 & scandinavian_pieces!

    Ciao BELLIN!
    I've just had another look at the vase and some of the net sites.
    The signature has four parts: Daum, the cross of Lorraine, Nancy and France. The France suggests a date after 1920. That's as far as I have got so far.

    Check this site out to an introduction to the history behind marks.
    It involves McKinley prior to his election as President, World War I, Protectionist Policy, the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Acts of 1930 and The Great Depression:
    What they say about pottery was relevant to all goods including glass.

    hi vetraio, this bulled model is much more in 1930 - 1935 period i saw a similar model in ebay few month ago an hesitate to by without indication of signature, but the shape was very close..... and i felt that should be daum... Daumpost war production strated to produced clear glass uncolored, like the glass ship paperweight of sean68

    What does DLG mean?

    Marinot? Come on. But is it Daum ?
  17. paris1925 paris1925, 3 years ago
    DLG "in manner of" wel they love use it when they don't know -) but i know that it is daum-) marinot..... noway!

    you know vetraio many people are not able to read the signature if it is not "under the base" and the bubbles does not help them to find the signature.... but when you know the model or the typical shape/ style of amaker.... the feeling is sufficient. i got my last daum like this.... marked as unsigned..... but it was.

    Thanks DAVE !!!!!!!
    So it is not "Devilish Little Grin"?


    Babblyon has these suggestions:
    DLG est un sigle qui désigne :
    - DLG (Dark Latin Groove) est une formation musicale
    - Code aéroport IATA de Dillingham (Alaska, États-Unis)
    - Dicos libres et gratuits est une bibliothèque électronique
    - le Didier Lockwood Group, du nom du violoniste français.

    But for my information do the letters stand for: " de la genre"?
