    Beautifully coloured Art Nouveau cameo glass vase by Émile Gallé c1900. Elegant long-necked banjo-shaped vase. Decorated in cameo with trailing clematis in mauve over a pale sky-blue frosted body. Wheel cut detail to leaves and petals. Raised Gallé signature to body. The vase is 17 cm in height.
    The vase is in excellent original condition with no chips or cracks. Bubble inclusions to the glass body as is commonly seen with cameo glass of this era. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.

     
    Gallé was the son of a faience and furniture manufacturer and studied philosophy, botany, and drawing in his youth. He learned glassmaking at Meisenthal and came to work at his father's factory in Nancy following the Franco-Prussian War. His early work was executed using clear glass decorated with enamel, but he soon turned to an original style featuring heavy, opaque glass carved or etched with plant motifs (cameo glass). In 1877 he took over from his father as director of the Maison Gallé-Reinemer. His work received praise at the Paris Exhibition of 1878 and again at the Paris Exhibition of 1889 – giving him and his style international fame.  With its emphasis on naturalism and floral motifs, Gallé’s designs were at the forefront of the emerging Art Nouveau movement.
