Burgun & Schverer "Irises" Cameo Glass Vase
This cameo glass vase, by Burgun & Schverer, features "Irises" in a stunning display of French Art Nouveau style. With intercalaire decoration of lavender irises with green stems on a carved brilliant rose-colored ground, the bright fuchsia background of the composition intensifies around the upper portion in order to provide exquisite contrast to the delicately rendered, highly dimensional but lightly-colored iris blooms, then tapers in hue to a lighter shade around the stronger green of the swaying leaves that accompany the blossoms.
