This is an exquisite authentic daum nancy art nouveau flacon or alcohol flask, it is a beautiful tangerine orange in colour graduating to a pale raspberry at the base. It is decorated with gold leaves and thistles as shown in the photos, the gold is bright and vibrant.
If you are familiar with daum glass you will know that there are different nuances and textures to the glass which makes every piece unique, the glass appears almost translucent in the light. It has an art nouveau design of flowers and leaves to the top and base cup. The top and base bear the Minerve French solid silver stamp. The silver base is removable which I believe was used as a little cup for whatever tipple was fancied.There are traces to indicate that there was a gold wash over the silver originally, particularly to the neck and the underside of the base. The base is signed Daum Nancy with the symbol for the cross of Lorraine It measures almost 6 high. It is a beautiful, quality item in very good antique condition - rare to be complete with little glass stopper. I have read that the stopper identifies it as a perfume bottle but either way it is a beautiful and rare treasure.
