Vase (France), ca. 1895
This is a vase. It was made by Daum. It is dated ca. 1895 and we acquired it in 2013. Its medium is mold-blown, etched and carved glass, enamel fusions. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Daum produced layered glass similar to that of Emile Gallé’s, and gradually perfected several original and difficult techniques, such as using colored glass powder, wheel cutting, martelage (producing a hammered texture), mold-blowing, and acid etching. These techniques resulted in stunning decorative effects
when combined on a single piece of glass
