Cameo glass is one of Gallés most beautiful creations, and after his death, the artisans from his studios continued to produce this form of Nouveau art glass. Cameo glass is made by layering multicolored glass, then engraving or etching through the layers to form a raised decoration or cameo effect. This technique was popular on vases, covered boxes and various other decorative forms. Emile Gallé exhibited cameo table lamps and chandeliers at the Ecole de Nancy Exposition in Paris, France in 1903, delighting viewers with this modern form of illumination based on naturalistic decorative forms. The Gallé workshops closed at the beginning of World War I.
The cruel realities of war dampened spirits and the economy, reducing the appeal of inspirational Nouveau (new) glass. After the 1918 armistice, Art Nouveau glass had a short period of revival that ended in 1931 when Gallés firm closed. The item "EMILE GALLÉ (1846-1904) Cameo vase.
