Galle. GALLE MINI

AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE MINIATURE GALLE SEULE FLEUR CAMEO GLASS VASE

This beautiful little GALLE 'Seule fleur' vase is probably the smallest example of a cameo glass vase produced by Galle. Daum was renowned for the very fine miniatures produced by the factory but Galle seldom produced a vase that could truly be classified as a 'miniature'.

The clear ground body of the vase has an opaque pink internal layer while the cameo design is executed in layers of lime green and olive green, acid etched three times to give the details of berries hanging from leafy branches.

The whole vase is finished with a soft satin matt surface with hand polishing to the details of the design in the outer olive green cameo layer.

C1900

Height 8cms.

Signature: A fine script 'Galle' signature on the reverse in the olive green cameo glass layer.

Stock No. 864

PRICE: 480 ON HOLD

The amethyst layer takes on a rich dark purple colour where it overlays the blue while the vase has been "cut back" internally with acid to remove the yellow colour and produce the pure blue details of the Fritillary flower heads.

The background is frosted to a satin finish while the layers of cameo glass are hand polished to highlight the design.

This is a very pleasing and dramatic rendition of a stunning GALLE design.
