Additional Information :
Gallé himself was a keen artist and observer of the natural world. His glass designs are considered to be one of the major forces in the French Art Nouveau movement. His "Writings on Art" which was released posthumously in 1908 gives a clear insight into his design ethos. This example was produced before Galle died 1904.
