Daum Nancy – an unusual so called “verrerie parlante” vase. The circular form with a decoration of delicately enameled dandelions on an opalescent body. It has an etched and gilded inscription on the side: “comme la plume au vent”. These “talking’ vases were originally an invention of Emile Gallé who used strophes by famous lyrics and poets to enhance and illustrate a certain mood, which the sentence, together with the decoration, should come to call. Nancy, 1895 – 1900. Height: 16,6 cms. Condition: mint. Price: on request.
