DESCRIPTION An authentic Art Nouveau period French cameo glass vase signed Daum Nancy with a floral Hyacinth design and having a 4-sided diamond shape, circa 1903. In clear glass overlaid with additional glass in colors of opal and emerald green, followed by acid etching and wheel carving to create a martelé / "hammered" effect that covers most of the exterior surface of the vase. Dimensions Height: 7 1/2", 19.05 CM Width: 4 3/8", 11.11 CM Condition Exhibits a shallow crack less than 1 MM deep that begins on one side of the vase and follows a mostly vertical, then rightward diagonal path across an edge to an adjoining side where it continues in a mostly upward trajectory.Its depth is well less than the thickness of the glass. Barely visible near the middle of the right side in the first photo, more visible on the upper left side of the second photo and shown in detail in the seventh and eighth (last two) photos.
