Gallé (Galle), Abutilon vase

Gallé (Galle), Abutilon vase

ITEM # 2511038

Abutilon flowers don't grow in the east because they can't take the cold, so the first time I saw the flower on a vase, I couldn't identify it. Then I got help from a gentleman in California who was growing the flower. It's a pretty flower that's depicted beautifully on this vase, utilizing the windowpane technique, so the pink-red of the flowers doesn't mix with the yellow of the background. Great footed shape, 6½" tall x 6½" diameter. Signed in cameo on the side of the vase. Mint condition.

Gallé (Galle), Black Eyed Susan vase

Gallé (Galle), Black Eyed Susan vase

ITEM # 2808002

I'm very fond of Gallé (Galle) vases with frosted backgrounds. They allow the colors of the flowers to show well and contrast beautifully with the background. I especially like this vase because the flowers are a rare shade of green that I haven't often seen on other Gallé (Galle) vases. I think it's stunning. The flowers appear to be Black Eyed Susan or Painted Daisy or something else in the Echinacea family.  The size is perfect for a cabinet at 9" tall. Signed Gallé (Galle) in cameo on the side of the vase. Mint condition.

Gallé (Galle), Blownout clematis vase

Gallé (Galle), Blownout clematis vase

ITEM # 2501011

Gallé (Galle) blownout vases with an extra layer of color are rarer and more attractive than vases without one. In this case the white layer creates better contrast and opacity, making the flowers pop.  This is a special example.  6½" tall.  Signed.  Mint condition.

Gallé (Galle), Blownout Crocus

Gallé (Galle), Blownout Crocus

ITEM # 3103001

Gallé (Galle) blownout vases were produced in molds. Subject matter varies from flowers to fruit to animals. They are all rarer and more desirable than most vases that are not blownout. Standard acid-etching techniques were used after the molten glass was formed in a mold with compressed air. Crocus blownout vases come in a variety of colors. This example, with pink-red crocus flowers, is exceptionally pretty. And a nice little added touch is the original Gallé (Galle) sticker on the bottom ETABLTS GALLÉ·PARIS·NANCY and hand-numbered 31873. 8¼" tall. Cameo signature on the side of the vase Gallé (Galle). Mint condition.    

Gallé (Galle), Blownout hyacinth vase

Gallé (Galle), Blownout hyacinth vase

ITEM # 2608009

Gallé (Galle) blownout vases were produced in molds. Subject matter varies from flowers to fruit to animals. They are all rarer and more desirable than similar vases that are not blownout. This fantastic example is a blownout Hyacinth vase. It's quite special because the color is vibrant and the technique is windowpane. This technique framed the flowers with no color behind them, so the yellow color of the background doesn't mix with the red of the flowers (creating orange flowers). Impressive cabinet size at 12" tall. Acid-etched cameo signature on the side of the vase Gallé (Galle). Mint condition.

Gallé (Galle), Blownout rowan berry vase

Gallé (Galle), Blownout rowan berry vase

ITEM # 2910004

Gallé (Galle) blownout vases were produced in molds. Subject matter varies from flowers to fruit to animals. They are all rarer and more desirable than most vases that are not blownout. Standard acid-etching techniques were used after the molten glass was formed in a mold with compressed air. Each model comes in different color variations. This example has very pretty yellow-orange rowan berries. The rowans, also known as mountain-ashes, are shrubs or trees in the genus Sorbus of the rose family, Rosaceae. Gallé (Galle) mostly used local flora for their subject matter, so that means they grew in France. 11¼" tall. Cameo signature on the side of the vase Gallé (Galle). Mint condition.    

Gallé (Galle), Clematis vase

Gallé (Galle), Clematis vase

ITEM # 2605100

Clematis flowers are gorgeous in person and equally beautiful when depicted on Gallé (Galle) vases. This example is no exception. The color is lovely and the workmanship is very careful and precise. Additionally the windowpane technique was used to frame the flowers, so the yellow color of the background doesn't mix with the red of the flowers. The techniques were acid-etching, followed by wheel-polishing. The shape is elegant, bulbous in the center, but flattened, like a pillow, with a flared mouth. The quality is superior. Signed in cameo on the side of the vase. 7" tall. Mint condition.

Gallé (Galle), Oak leaves & beetle vase

Gallé (Galle), Oak leaves & beetle vase

ITEM # 2806003

Gallé (Galle) didn't put many insects on vases. They're quintessentially Art Nouveau, so they add interest, rarity and value when they're present. This beautiful example has a big beetle among colorful oak leaves. The shading in the leaves goes from dark charcoal to stunning cerulean blue, all against a shaded salmon-colored background. The workmanship is outstanding, including wheel-polishing after the acid-etching, which results in a shine to the raised areas only. Fancy oriental Gallé (Galle) signature in the background. 5½" tall x 5¼" diameter. Mint condition.
