    I recently acquired this vase by Ernest-Baptiste Léveillé, circa 1885. Leveille worked in Paris and was a pupil (later partner) of Eugène Rousseau, one of the Art Nouveau movement's founders. It has smoke colored glass and internally decorated with mottled inclusions of dark burgundy, brown and off white. The exterior is decorated in a Japanesque style, hand painted, gilt overlay of leaves, birds with some enameling thrown in. It's a large and heavy piece measuring 12 x 9 x 7. As always, thanks for looking!

      Hi Rick and Gloria!
      Wow now you have checked many boxes with this one. I have recently seen a piece of smoke glass and it will stop you in your tracks in person.
      As usual you have taken it to another level and yes please. :)
      Thanks to you both for all your support in my 1st year of collecting. One of my early comments was when I grow up I want to be a Chihuly. :) However, not like it would hurt my feelings or anything to have a piece but you all have shown me so much more out there that there is to love. Re-set: 700 sq.ft. with a Chihuly? LOL
      Still a work in progress. Many thanks..

      Rick! What a superb piece, and great pics!
    5. sklo42 sklo42, 3 years ago
      Stunning in its beauty!
      I've often thought it odd that the very best of French glass, which this is, rarely appears here. I'm hoping you are going to change that, Rick.

      So very lovely. Thank you for sharing this.

      As I was looking at this for maybe the fourth or fifth time, my thoughts were "What can I say?, What can I say ?". Then on my final visual run through, in that first picture, the bird ! So wonderfully hidden to my eye by all the pleasant distractions this vase presents.

      Rick55, Just now

      Thank you so much for your great comments and love Mike, Valentino, OGF, Kevin, Bill, Gillian, Cindy, Flea, Peggy, Kyra and Elizabeth, and thanks for the love Thomas, Ivonne, Bluebonnet, Deb, EZA, Aura, Mike, Fort, Tassie Bonnie and BB2... I appreciate your guys support :-)

      @ OGF... Thank you, that was kind. I couldn't think anything better than owning a Chihuly! I'm sure that's a dream of many of us :-)

      @ Peggy... I agree, we don't see enough French glass here. I have another piece by Leveille that I'll be posting soon. It's a later piece and completely different from this one.

      @ Bill... Thank you Bill, it is a little busy, but I feel it all comes together nicely.

      @ Flea... Thank you so much for the warm wishes, it's very much appreciated :-)

      Great looking piece Rick, I have been looking closely at French glass lately. This one I definitely get why you have got it. Beautiful!!

      Thanks so much for the great comments and love Malkey, Rosie, Bill (again) and Mac. Also, thanks for the love Jean, Nice, Kairomalte, Tony, Sean, Swfin, Official, Karen and Mrsyndall, I appreciate all of you guys!
    15. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      For some reason half of my post didn't print.

      @ Malkey... I would love to see your Rousseau piece which is even earlier! Does it have the crackle effect?
    16. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      @ Rosie... I hate to see what your comment would have looked like if you could have figured out what to say! LOL Thanks!

      @ Mac... Thanks so much Mac, I have several French pieces that are on my want list... especially one by Rousseau.
    17. MALKEY MALKEY, 3 years ago
      Hi Rick yes the Eugene Rousseau does have the inner wall crackle effect my friend
    18. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      That's great Malkey then you have a nice early piece by Rousseau or Rousseau and Leveille. A few months back I was bidding on one of his crackle vases but came up a little short. This is one I'm looking out for. One of these days I hope to find one :-) Please post yours - I'm dying to see it!
    19. MALKEY MALKEY, 3 years ago
      Will do Rick as soon as possible its a complex piece with carving
    20. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      Is it one of the ones internally etched?
    21. MALKEY MALKEY, 3 years ago
      no wheel carved deep valleys on the outer casing Rick
    22. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      Oh okay, I've only seen vases that have it on the inside. I can't wait to see it!
    23. MALKEY MALKEY, 3 years ago
      Hi Rick just put it on hope you like

      Rick, the wonderful gilding set against the gorgeous swirls of color and texture in the glass is truly a piece of fine art. Just amazing. It found a very good home with you. You really do have an amazing collection!!
    30. Rick55 Rick55, 3 years ago
      Thanks so much Michelle I really appreciate your opinion! What's funny is that I don't particularly like gilding, but on this piece it works for me. Also, thanks for the love Kurt, Sean, Mrs T, Roy, Kerry and Gary, you guys are very much appreciated!
