Daum . Daum sollifleur mottled

A RARE DAUM MINIATURE 'BERLUZE' VASE

A miniature Daum 'Berluze' 'seule fleur' vase, free-blown and with an opaque vitrified multi-colour surface.

Daum's Berluze vases conformed to a common shape but each one is unique because they were free-blown and the final product depended on the individual glass-blower's skill and talent.

Berluze vases were made in all sizes but most of the glass-blowers attempted to produce larger more imposing pieces. A miniature Berluze vase of this fine quality is very rare.
