Antique EMILE GALLE 8.25 WISTERIA French Cameo Art Nouveau Vase. I have decided to sell. They were listed as authentic Galle glass circa 1900.They were part of a rather immense collection of high end glass and ceramic. The crowd was thin that day and the catalog was deep. The Galle came up and I won both lots.
With that said as you probably know Galle is often imitated. These pieces to me (and I know very little about Galle as mentioned) seem to have authentic patina consistent with age.
This piece does appear to have been used as a vase. They do not appear to be modern imitations to me. Ill let you be the judge. Please look at photos carefully and make your own determination.
This piece was listed as being cut off. I assume there must have been a crack or break and it was dealt with by cutting the top off. I have no way of knowing how, when, or why this was done. In addition to the Galle signature visible on the vase there is also what appears to be the initials CE and a number possibly 6117 signed on the bottom of the base. It seems to be signed in purple paint or ink and is quite faint.
Vase is 8.25 tall, the base is approximately 5 across at its widest, the mouth is just shy of 2 across at its widest. Again please carefully examine the photos. I really dont have any more information than what I provided. The item "Antique EMILE GALLE 8.25 WISTERIA French Cameo Art Nouveau Vase" is in sale since Wednesday, October 16, 2019.
