Daum Nancy, Leaves Vase
Sorry for the poor photographs, but this vase hasn't arrived yet, so I'm using the photos that were sent to me. The vase has all wheel-carved leaves, making for great detail that can only be accomplished with this technique. Very few workers were skilled enough use this technique, making wheel-carved vases rare and more sophisticated. As long as the artist was holding the wheel for carving, why not carve a large, very fancy DAUM NANCY signature on the side, together with the Cross of Lorraine? 9" tall -- a very nice cabinet size. Mint condition.
(I'll post better photos after it arrives, unless it's already sold.)
