The Jugendstil glasses by the HARRACH glasshouse in Neuwelt excel in the very rare and difficult technique of 'marquetry' glass with hot applied pad cameo with a design of grapes on the vine and vine leaves in an astonishing five colours.
These glasses are not for sale as they have been especially located and acquired for one of our clients who has a unique collection of similar HARRACH marquetry pieces.

LONDON DEALERS IN ART NOUVEAU AND ART DECO GLASS
We are a family run business and have been trading in Art Nouveau and Art Deco Glass since 1981. As with many dealers, we were collectors of Art Nouveau and Art Deco glass for many years (our special interests were Daum, Galle, Loetz and Thomas Webb) before we became SPECIALIST DEALERS, dealing mainly in Continental, English and American Art Glass.
Our favourite makers of Art Nouveau Glass and Art Deco Glass in which we specialise are:
GALLE and DAUM,
but we are also recognised as dealers in the works of many of the great Art Nouveau designers and manufacturers:
GALLE, DAUM, R LALIQUE, LOETZ, MOSER, THOMAS WEBB, L C TIFFANY, FRITZ HECKERT,
LEGRAS, THERESIENTHAL, WMF
and the GREAT CZECH GLASS HOUSES including PALDA, HARRACH and HOFFMANN.
A CHARMING PAIR OF LOETZ IRIDESCENT PAPILLON VASES WITH APPLIED SILVER OVERLAY Loetz iridescent vases with Silver Overlay are some of the most sought after examples of Art Nouveau Art Glass. The technique has been beautifully executed on these stunning pair of Loetz papillon cabinet vases.
The vases are described in detail on our LOETZ PAGE.
AN AMAZINGLY DRAMATIC AND STURDY ART DECO ENAMELLED DRINKS SET BY KARL PALDAThis totally eccentric and dramatic classic ART DECO enamelled drinks set by KARL PALDA is one of a collection of KARL PALDA drinks sets that we have recently acquired. Four examples can be found on the ART DECO GLASS PAGE of our large and ever changing collection of ART NOUVEAU and ART DECO art glass.

TWO FINE AND RARE EXAMPLES OF KOMARONY LAMP BLOWN GLASS FIGURESThese two beautiful KOMARONY ART DECO style lamp blown dancers are of differing sizes with differing bases.
A full description of these charming figures can be found on the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE.
A STUNNING PAIR OF VITRIFIED CAMEO GLASS MINIATURE SALTS BY DAUM WITH AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE 'SPRING TIME BLOSSOM' DESIGNA pair of truly stunning miniature salts; we have never seen this exquisite and beautiful design by Daum before.
A full description with another photograph of these charming salts can be found on the DAUM PAGE.
A MINIATURE DAUM 'RAIN' VASE - BY FAR THE SMALLEST WE HAVE EVER SEEN, ALONG WITH A DAUM 'FOREST IN WINTER' SALT AND PILLOW MINIATURE VASE Click on the photograph for a picture of the miniature 'RAIN' vase.
These beautiful and rare DAUM miniature landscape vases are exquisitely detailed by acid etching and enamelling.
The 'RAIN' miniature vase is not only the rarest and most sought after of the landscape designs but this example is by far the smallest DAUM miniature that we have ever seen.
Two examples of the 'FOREST IN WINTER' design are shown for comparison and these are the classic forms and sizes of a salt dish and pillow vase.
All these Daum miniatures can be viewed on the DAUM PAGE.
A MONUMENTAL ART DECO CAMEO GLASS VASE WITH WROUGHT IRON FOOT CREATED BY ANDRE DELATTE.This truly stunning and dramatic ART DECO cameo glass vase by DeLatte is described in full on the ART DECO GLASS PAGE.
AN EARLY, STUNNING AND VERY RARE G. ARGY- ROUSSEAU PĀTE DE VERRE CUP VASE.This beautifully subtle example of an exceedingly rare Gabriele Argy-Rousseau Pāte de Verre 'cup' vase in a dramatically contrasting colour-way can be found on the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE.
A SUPERB RENE LALIQUE 'SAINT-FRANCOIS' OPALESCENT VASE WITH BLUE PATINAThis stunning Rene Lalique vase is illustrated and described in full detail on the RENE LALIQUE PAGE.
(Click on the photograph to see a beautiful Rene Lalique Poissons bowl also recently added to the RENE LALIQUE PAGE.)
TWO CONTRASTING GALLE CAMEO GLASS VASES.An unusual GALLE 'Lilly of the Valley' cameo glass vase in a rare colour-way of pinks contrasts with a popular landscape design in blues.
Both vases can be found on the GALLE PAGE
TWO EQUALLY STUNNING AND RARE VASES, ONE BY RENE LALIQUE AND THE OTHER BY HARRACH.The exceedingly rare RENE LALIQUE 'Ronces' vase executed in cobalt blue is described fully on the RENE LALIQUE PAGE.
Also exceptionally rare is the monumental hand carved and gilded HARRACH tulip tube vase which can be found on the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE.
A STUNNING AND RARE PAIR OF ACID ETCHED CAMEO GLASS VASES WITH AN ART NOUVEAU 'WILD ARUM' DESIGN AND SUPERB APPLIED SOLID SILVER OVERLAY.These are a truly beautiful pair of Art Nouveau cameo vases with pure silver overlay, the style and quality of which we have only encountered in the monumental, exhibition quality, bowl in amethyst overlay illustrated further down this page. We believe that the vases are Bohemian, probably emanating from the HARRACH factory.
These spectacular vases are fully described on the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE.

AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE HARRACH HOT APPLIED PAD CAMEO DECANTER WITH HAND ENGRAVING AND AUSTRIAN SILVER MOUNTSThis stunning Decanter is probably one of the rarest and finest pieces that it has ever been our privilege to acquire.
