Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a FABULOUS D'Argenthal French Cameo Art Glass vase, c. The vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs.Measures 9" high, 6" maximum diameter with a 1 3/8" diameter mouth and a 3 3/8" base diameter. This stunning French cameo art glass vase is cut with three layers of glass and has a spherical shape. The coloration is lovely with a lime green ground overlaid in a light brown with the third layer being olive green with the vase being finished with a "fire polish". The design is a very natural pine cone and needle pattern.
Signed with a cameo signature of "D'Argenthal" with the cross of Lorraine. In 1893, Emile Galle asked Nicolas on his eighteenth birthday to come work for him. When Galle died in 1904, Nicholas continued to work for the Galle Company which was now in the charge of Galle's widow.After participating in the Exhibition of 1908 in Strasburg, Nicholas began to create items under his own name. He did this for a short period at the School of Nancy produced glass in the style of Galle.
After 1918, Nicholas again worked for the Saint-Louis Factory creating objects that he signed "D'Argenthal". Cameo glass with the "D'Argenthal" signature is very similiar to that being produced at Nancy and this glass is considered to be at the top of this art glass category. This stunning Cameo Art Glass is from my personal collection. We are currently down-sizing so I have decided to offer some of my favorite pieces to a new collector.
