A ‘Fougeres’ cameo vase. Gallé himself was a keen artist. his glass is considered to be one of the major forces within the french Art Nouveau movement. His “Writings on Art” which was released posthumously in 1908 gives a clear insight into his design ethos.

“Fougere”. played a significant role in early French glass manufacture. Ferns were burned to provide a source of potash for glass making. In this case these are aquating plants with fern like leaves. one of many aquatic inspired designs.

* The pi type double L was introduced by director Paul Pedrizet when the factory reopened in 1918 and produced acid cameo glass for a short period.

This is our second example. Sadly the first was misappropriated by a former member of staff and sold via their own channel.
