Daum Nancy Enameled and Etched Cyclamen Glass Vase with Handles


This dynamic enameled and etched glass vase with applied handles is from the French firm, Daum Nancy. The body of the glass vase features a delicate, pastel pink martelé background, among which buds a near-translucent, ultra-delicate set of green cyclamen blooms. Framing the composition from the top is an falling canopy of bright green, sinuously curling vines, while from below, solid, dark green lily pads enhance compositional stability. The dark base of the vase is wheel-carved in relief. Two applied handles sprout from the narrow top of the vase, in similar sinuous fashion and in a beautifully bright and vivacious green coloring.
