This is another vase by Ernest-Baptiste Leveille who, as I stated in my other post, worked in Paris and was a pupil (later partner) of Eugène Rousseau, one of the Art Nouveau movement's founders. This is a later piece, circa 1890, and by this time Leveille owned the company. He continued Rousseu's style of design using Craquelle glass, Marble glass, Agate glass and imitation gems. This is an example of his Marble technique and is my favorite vase of his. It features brick-red glass with very light green striations, cut top, hand painted gilding, three dimples and measures 6" h x 5" w. As always, thanks for looking!
