Daum Nancy Wheel-Carved Floral Cameo Glass Vase
This French Art Nouveau wheel-carved cameo glass vase by Daum Nancy, featuring blue flowers and dark green stems and leaves against a mottled white and blue ground. The ethereal, swirling blue and white, organically textured mottled glass background of this vase provides an otherworldly backdrop for the ultra-finely carved delicate blue blooms that decorate it. Grounding this heavenly composition are the aesthetically weighty carved, dark green leaves, that give the scene a decided sense of earthiness.
