Daum Nancy, Gentian Violet Vase

The quality in this Daum Nancy vase is truly superior. There are four gorgeous gentian violet flowers (two on each side) on a pale blue mottled background.  Each flower was applied with molten glass and then hand-carved by a craftsman after the vase was cold. It's a technique used only on the best vases, as it was time-intensive and could only be done by the most skilled craftsmen. The effect is to make the flowers intensely colored and realistic. 8¾" tall. Engraved signature on the side. Mint condition.
