Vase (France)

This is a Vase. It was manufactured by Daum. It is dated ca. 1900 and we acquired it in 1969. Its medium is glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

In 1891, Daum Frères, a prominent glassworks in Nancy, France, operated by brothers Auguste and Antonin Daum, opened a decoration studio to augment their fine glassware. Daum’s chief decorator of 30 years, artist Henri Bergé (French, 1870-1937), made hundreds of watercolor studies from plants in Nancy’s botanical gardens for use by designers at the factory as well as in his teaching. In 1897, a formal drawing school was established at the factory with courses taught by Bergé and fellow designer Jacques Gruber

It is credited Museum purchase through gift of Jacob Schiff.
