Daum Nancy Enameled and Etched Floral Landscape Glass Vase
This French Art Nouveau enameled and etched "Fleurs et Abeilles" glass vase by Daum Nancy. The unusual and wildly undulating form of this beautiful vase is countered neatly by the tightly executed landscape that decorates its organic curves, bulges, dips and valleys. Climbing from a deeply, darkly colored base upward to the bright, nearly translucent bright yellow rim of the vase are a field of ultra-finely rendered red orchid blooms with framing leaves and strong stems. The base of the uniquely shaped vase is decorated with an abstracted vegetal form.
