I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this piece, which appears to be Daum Nancy. Anything is appreciated. Authenticity and how much may it be worth are my questions. Pictures are different angle where the vase seems to be different colors......This what makes it a unique vase. It is 4 3/4 in height. The top opening is 2" wide and the base is 1 3/4".....Thank you....John

    Hi John from Sydney, Australia!
    It looks genuine and bears an early gilt version of the signature: Daum, the cross of Lorraine and followed by the town of Nancy. Nice art nouveau vase with both enamel decoration and gliding of the flowers and "libellule". The dragon fly or "libellule" is a typical motif in the art nouveau. It seems to be flying above/among some flowerrs that I can't make out from your photos. The surface looks to acid etched which puts the decoration further into relief. It would look fabulous lit from behind. Smaller pieces had the gilded mark. Lucky you! How did you come to get it?

    Dont tell anyone but it was a .40 ct find at a thrifty. It was all dusty and dirty. There used to be gilt gold around the edges but it wore off. One of my best treasures unearthed....Thanks again to the 2 of you.
