Daum Nancy "Fleur de Coloquinte" Cameo Glass Vase


This French Art Nouveau satin-finished cameo glass "Fleur de Coloquinte," or "Squash Blossom" vase by Daum Nancy is an ultra delicate vase that features equally fine decoration in the form of wonderfully detailed zucchini leaves and flowers in the palest shadings of green. The vegetal forms are subtle yet eye catching against the swirling, mottled oqaque white- and orange-hued background.
