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 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 glass 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 of our large and ever changing collection of ART NOUVEAU and ART DECO art glass.

TWO VERY RARE PETITE LOETZ IRIDESCENT 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 is usually confined to Cabinet vases of at least 18 cms in height but these are the first examples that we have ever seen of silver overlay applied to petite Loezt vases, both less than 8.5 cms high.
Each vase is described in detail on our LOETZ 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 of glass that it has ever been our privilege to acquire.
The Jugendstil Decanter by the HARRACH glasshouse in Neuwelt excels in the very rare and difficult technique of hot applied pad cameo with a design of grapes on the vine and vine leaves. The body of the decanter has further hand engraving and is enhanced with stunning Austrian solid silver mounts.
This amazing decanter is fully described on the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE of our large and ever changing collection of ART NOUVEAU and ART DECO art glass.

This delightful vase is fully described on the ENGLISH ART GLASS PAGE.

A DELIGHTFUL DAUM PETITE VASE IN VITRIFIED CAMEO GLASS WITH ROSE HIP DESIGNA very attractive DAUM petite vase in subtle early autumn colours, unusually delicate for a vitrified cameo glass vase. This Rose Hip vase is fully described on the DAUM PAGE of our large and ever changing collection of ART NOUVEAU and ART DECO art glass.
A SUPERB AND RARE ACID ETCHED CAMEO GLASS 'IRIS' VASE OF EXHIBITION QUALITY WITH EXCEEDINGLY DETAILED, HIGH GRADE APPLIED SOLID SILVER OVERLAYA NEWLY ACQUIRED STUNNING FAMILY HEIRLOOM.

TWO NEWLY ACQUIRED EXCEEDINGLY RARE DAUM MINIATURE CAMEO GLASS LANDSCAPE VASES WITH APPLIED ENAMEL DETAILING. Both these beautiful and rare DAUM miniature landscape vases are not only exquisitely detailed in acid etching and enamelling but they also both have a layer of cameo glass from which the design has been etched. This is one of the rarest and most complicated Daum techniques.
Both can be viewed on the DAUM PAGE.
TWO EXCEEDINGLY RARE LOETZ SILVER OVERLAY VASES Although these are both fine examples of Loetz glass with silver overlay, the taller example has the most detailed and intricate silver work that we have ever seen on a Loetz vase.
Both can be viewed on the LOETZ PAGE.
