Emile GALLE Vase Roses de France

Émile GALLÉ (1846-1904)

Exceptional and rare VASE "ROSES DE FRANCE" (circa 1900) of balustrine shape with quadrilobé collar in pale green multilayered glass. Decorated with application of a rose branch, the branch in purple green, almond-green, beige-pink and light green leaves, the flower with high relief bright pink and transparent, applied hot, fully sculpted to the wheel and wheel as well as the leaves.

The decoration stands out on a pale green background, partly translucent and engraved with a wheel. Japanese signature GALLÉ engraved at the point on the flank under the rose. Height: 14 cm

Only very few models of identical vases, less than a dozen, were probably executed by the Master Glassmaker, hence the exceptional and rare character.
