Daum Nancy "Mimosa" Cameo Glass Vase

$75,000

This artistic "Mimosa" glass vase by Daum Nancy features a pink cameo glass overlay, naturalistically modeled as a languid orchid flower in true French Art Nouveau style. The orchid, splayed open and surrounded by copiously-applied gold pollen spores, is imbued with feminine sensuality. The imaginative color palate and curving lines surpass the glass design standards of the day, and render this piece a beguiling objet d'art.

A nascent fascination with natural forms, found in publications of the day like Ernst Haeckle's Kunstformen der Natur, permeated fin-de-siècle Paris and could be felt in museums and in homes; it manifested itself in a proliferation of flowers in French art and design, and in an intense investigation of flora where artists rivaled botanists.
