Eric Knowles Comments

Victor Saglier has been credited for supplying gilt metal mounts for various French glassmakers including Daum, Legras and Sevres. Victor Arwas in his indispensable book Glass Art Nouveau to Art Deco (Abrahams 1987) illustrates Saglier's trademark on page 285 but mistakenly credits the VS to Verrierie de Sevres - sorry Victor old chum!

The attribution to a glass maker responsible for the bowl is straight forward. This is Daum.

In summary, metalwork by Victor Saglier, glass by Daum
