Offered for sale is a beautiful vintage covered cameo-glass powder jar, or trinket box, signed Galle. It's very well made, hand-carved and etched in a floral design with amber-colored leaves and stems over translucent white, which actually looks pale pink in some spots.
The design has intricate details, soft edges and subtle textures with the Galle signature incorporated into it. The body of the jar is well-formed glass, not overly thick or heavy with a well-fitting domed lid.The edges of the jar and lid are softened with slight bevels. See photo 6 for jars interior and edge, as well as photo 10 for inside of lid. The jars bottom is honed and polished (photo 7). Obviously Galles name is misspelled on the sticker. I dont know if that misspelling is significant. Im not a cameo glass expert and this jar has not been authenticated. But it does have the authentic Galle characteristics as detailed above.
There are some scuff marks on the bottom and lid's edge; also a few white spots on the lid (see photos). I didn't try to clean it, but I'm sure an expert cleaning would do the trick. Measurements: Appx 3.5" high including the lid, and 4" wide. The item "Vtg Emile Galle French Cameo Etched Glass Signed Covered Powder Jar Trinket Box" is in sale since Thursday, August 26, 2021.
