    I, with much avidity, separately photographed the verdant vessel. Now, everyone may indulge in sips of this tannin-tinged draught of art glass, moistening one's eyes with a better view of this lovely example of fine artistry!

      Last photo with the sun shining through shows it best! Thanks for the extra photos was my favorite piece from the earlier post.

      Not genuine Emile Gallé, not a dangerous fake, either.
      Too obvious modern reproduction.
      Decorative, though.
    7. MarmorealMaiden MarmorealMaiden, 2 years ago

      How may you, by viewing four photos, presume this is a reproduction? Should one submit an unsubstantiated asseveration, I do assume one is to kindly, at a later time, cite further than curt commentary.

      On this lovely piece, the acid décor is superficially applied—it is not etched from within, like copies I have scrutinised—and the signature is neither conspicuously centred nor peculiarly placed.

      Also, rather than insinuating my viewers and I are insipient, incapable of discerning between authentic pieces and "'obvious'" reproductions, you should consider your edifying misinformed persons. When an individual presents luculent information, decorously evincing an attribution is likely inaccurate, I am receptive and grateful; I gain no knowledge from effete commentary, though. As presented on my previous art glass post, I do not purport myself to be a connoisseur of art glass. At twenty-six years of age, I am learning, and shall, for a lifetime, dedicate myself to the fleshen process.

      Have you any pertinent information, sources, or suggestions to share, Ivan, I would sincerely appreciate your posting them.

      The quality is always important when judging.
      Reproductions started in Romania decades ago, then China flooded the market and Galle reproductions became so common they do not even try to declare real Galle any more. If you are really interested in genuine Galle, buy it from a reputable seller (not online, no flea markets, no garage sales). This is similar to ‚‚Judaica‚‚ and ‚‚Faberge‚‚ in Imperial Russian silver: 100% fake without even bothering to look at.

      MarmorealMaiden. There is a Facebook group called French glass which you can join from anywhere in the world. They have, in their files, research done on genuine Gallé signatures which in fact changed over time. The admin. of the group is very knowledgeable and helpful, as are some of the members. Of course you may know this already.

      Thank you, Apostata, for iterating my thoughts and eliciting your concerns. Yes, Ivan has yet to provide sources to enforce his--at least presently--baseless certitude. As this is part of my personal collection, truly, I mind not the possibility of my housing a well-crafted reproduction. I should like to find this is an authentic Gallé but shall prove not disheartened by discovering my less-than-four-dollar find was artificed by another individual. Should I provide further photos of specific aspects on this piece, would you prove willing to view them? I do appreciate any assistance you may render.

      Ivan, I am cognizant of the Gallé-style pieces--most of which are garish, low-quality vessels--disseminated by persons from Romania and China, and their ubiquitous influence on the market. I do appreciate your celeritous correspondence, but I am patiently awaiting an insightful response.

      With you, I have further discord, for, I do believe, collectors should, by viewing and parsimoniously purchasing collectibles from charity stores, estate liquidations, rummage sales, et cetera, auto-didactically become better informed. Dealers desire collectors to remain uninformed, permitting themselves to, upon referencing expertise, extort buyers.

      I do not possess a collection: I am an ephemeral custodian, preserving each little dear for posterity. Collectibles should be sought for appreciation and preservation, not ersatz pride and viduous approbation.

      If one were to source items or photos for an exhibition, an indited reference book, or another form of auctorial intent, then, yes, one should consider consulting reputable dealers and high-end private collections.

      It is inutile to further scrutinise the vessel, say you, after dedicating your time and effort to brand this as an indigne piece, additionally inferring my attribution is demeritorious and snigger-worthy. I do find little assurance in non-sequitur arguments and mercurial commentary.

    14. MarmorealMaiden MarmorealMaiden, 2 years ago

      No, I was unaware of the Facebook group, and I do appreciate your informing me! I shall, sometime soon, consult the group members. Have you, by chance, a direct link to the group page, Sklo?
