    I have recently acquired this beautiful vessel signed Emile Galle Fayencerie de Nancy. The beautiful painting (some of which appears to be enamel) is amazing and there are insects scattered around the body. If anyone can provide any information on age and whether it is a genuine or fake Galle, would be most helpful, Thank you!

      hi auntie this is an authentic emile gallé, you are quite lucky to get this piece of art.

      emile and his father charles gallé were retailer of glass and porcelain, charles gallé was honoured to became the official furnisher of napoleon III, he also was awarded in many world exhibition , in circa 1867 his son emile created the first art nouveau models, charles gallé handled a stove in meisenthal glassworks , where his son learned glassmaking technics, charles in the eary times worked with the factory of luneville but the factory did some copies and he soped the work with , then he worked with saint clément and the factory of la petite raon and for some rares pieces they where also enameled at meisenthal (i mean the majolica). this vase is probably made between 1890-1894 emile gallé died in 1904.

      auntie would be nice to put it not front of sun, it could damdge the colours with time. i'll try to find you the original drawing of the vase-) orsay museum have the whole existing collection of " poncifs" this is a paper used to drow softly the pattern applied on the majolica with graphite or some dark powder. it helps decorater to draw the decoration.

      enjoy, these pieces are fragiles they usually are with chips and cracks, rarely in perfect coundition, i'm sure your piece is a good one who propbably was shown on some international world fair's.
