The vase has been carved in a wild vine of trailing vines growing leaves & grapes with a deep purple surface giving way to the peach coloured frosted clear glass beneath. The frosting gives the vase a rich velvety texture which compliments the gloss of the surface decoration adding a sense of depth to the piece. The vase is signed in relief "Galle" to the front below one of the long curled leaves which wrap around the edges of the piece. The detailing to the flowers is just exquisite. Dimensions The vase has a width of 4.2 inches (10.6 cm), a depth of 3 inches (7.6 cm) & a height of 6.5 inches (16.5 cm).
Condition The piece remains in excellent condition, it is free from chips and cracks. There is a respectable minor degree of standing wear to the base as well as other areas, consistent with its age.
