Description
Gorgeous, tall French Art Nouveau cameo glass vase by Galle c1905. Low shouldered baluster form with elongated tapering neck and flared rim. Attractive design of hanging blackthorn branches laden with fruit. Acid etched cameo design in green and brown over a burnt-orange frosted ground. Raised acid etched Galle* signature to the body (used between 1904 and 1906). The vase measures 31.5 cm in height and 11 cm maximum diameter. Gallé was the son of a faience and furniture manufacturer and studied philosophy, botany, and drawing in his youth. He learned glassmaking at Meisenthal and came to work at his father's factory in Nancy following the Franco-Prussian War. His early work was executed using clear glass decorated with enamel, but he soon turned to an original style featuring heavy, opaque glass carved or etched with plant motifs (cameo glass). In 1877 he took over from his father as director of the Maison Gallé-Reinemer. His work received praise at the Paris Exhibition of 1878 and again at the Paris Exhibition of 1889 – giving him and his style international fame.  With its emphasis on naturalism and floral motifs, Gallé’s designs were at the forefront of the emerging Art Nouveau movement.
