Daum Nancy, Scenic Vase
There are two basic types of Daum Nancy scenic vases -- acid-etched only and acid-etched with enameling. There is a significant difference in appearance and quality, so I rarely buy vases that are only acid-etched.
This example is exactly what I look for -- a beautiful scene with incredible detail that can only be achieved by the addition of hand-painted and fired details. There is tremendous depth in this vase, with internal mottling for the clouds and water. It's just gorgeous and big, at 12" tall.
Signed in enamel on the underside, Daum Nancy, together with the Cross of Lorraine. Mint condition.
