Daum Nancy, Dutch Scenic Vase
Daum produced a series of vases with scenes on one side and flowers on the other. This example has a Dutch scene with windmill hand-painted on one side in black (called en grisaille painting). On the other side we find the national flower of The Netherlands, the tulip, done in the more traditional acid-etched and hand-painted enamel style. Additionally the details in the leaves were gilded, making this a sophisticated and beautiful vase. Nice cabinet size at 7¾". Gilded signature on the underside. Mint condition.
