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 Sagliers trademark on page 285 but mistakenly credits the VS to Verrierie de Sevres - sorry Victor old chum!

The attribution of the glassmaker responsible for this Liqueur Bottle and stopper has proved problematic and although obviously not by Daum this will be by either Baccarat or Legras  when considering the acid cutting and thick gilding. A truly stunning object. Irises were a perennial theme with Baccarat and Legras. Baccarat also used paper labels and early Legras may have a label or have a gilded signature. Baccarat were the masters of decorative acid cut grounds , this is a little plain and is consistent withe their contemporary production. Legras also used plain acid cut grounds in the late 19th and early 20th century.

In summary, metalwork by Victor Saglier, glass by Baccarat or Legras
