This is a typical example of the vitrified Daum inventory that continued into the Art Deco period and the bowl is signed in relief in the etched design with a signature from this later period.

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.
