Daum Nancy, Floral martelé vase

Daum Nancy, Floral martelé vase

ITEM # 2606059

Martelé backgrounds in glass were meant to simulate hammered metal surfaces. Since glass can't be hammered, the effect had to be created by hand-carving each and every "dent". It makes for a beautiful effect on this lovely 7" Daum Nancy floral vase. Signed underneath with a fancy engraved and gilded signature. Mint condition.

Daum Nancy, Insects box

Daum Nancy, Insects box

ITEM # 3201003

Daum Nancy Nancy items with applied and wheel-carved insects are important and sophisticated. The insects were applied with molten glass, with a piece of colored metal foil in the middle.  After the box cooled, a glass artist carved the bugs, complete with legs that extend into the box itself. The metal foil reflects in the bugs, giving them nice color. The same for the cabochons. They were carved and faceted by wheel-carving. This box has an amazing three insects and two cabochons. It's museum-quality. Nice size at 4½" wide x 5" long. Engraved signature underneath. Mint condition.

Daum Nancy, Peacock feather bowl

Daum Nancy, Peacock feather bowl

ITEM # 2601006

Daum Nancy Peacock Feather vases are very sophisticated because of the difficult techniques used to produce them. Most of the work on the bowl is standard acid-etching, but not the centers of the feathers. The light blue and dark blue glass was applied when the glass was molten, then pressed into the bowl on the marver. The process is called padding, which makes for special vases. I only get one or two Peacock Feather items yearly and they sell very quickly. This example measures 3½" tall x 6¾" diameter. Mint condition.

Daum Nancy, Scenic vase

Daum Nancy, Scenic vase

ITEM # 2611040

There are two basic types of Daum Nancy 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 Nancy, together with the Cross of Lorraine. Mint condition.    

Daum Nancy, Scenic vase

Daum Nancy, Scenic vase

ITEM # 2612015

Daum Nancy produced many more floral vases than scenic vases, so it's nice to to be able to offer any scenic vase for sale. However, the quality varies quite a bit. Some Daum Nancy scenic vases are acid-etched only and lack the color and detail that was achieved by the combination of acid-etching and hand-painted enameling. This example is quite special with superb color and detail. At 15", it's a substantial vase. Black enamel signature on the foot, Daum Nancy Nancy and the Cross of Lorraine. Mint condition.

Daum Nancy, Winter vase

ITEM # 2702007

Daum Nancy Winter vases are not rare, but they are very desirable and highly collectible. This Winter example is at the front of the pack because of the very rare and desirable flattened shape with delicate turned handles. Most of the time, the shape is neutral to a vase's value, but other times it's very important. This is one of those times. Daum Nancy Winter vases don't get any better. 7" tall. Black enamel signature underneath. Mint condition (which is very important with such delicate handles.)
