Pretty Art Nouveau Small Vase

Post by apolonius on July 21st 2015, 7:34 pm

This lovely little vase is signed, but not a signature I am familiar with
it measures 11x9cm








Your input and advice would be most appreciated, thanks!

It's definitely glass. The pattern is raised and coloured on both the rim and the body, like Gallé and I would guess it dates from the Belle epoque too, or a bit later. You can see the letters in the pictures as well as I can; Guéguit or quéguit or something?

No, it isn't ceramic. It is glass. Good grief, do you really think I can't tell the difference? Look at the bottom of the second shot, you can see clear glass. That's because it is made of entirely of glass. By the way, did I mention that it is made of glass and not ceramic?

A fuzzy low res shot of an edge of the base isn't much help. The top inside looks like ceramic; the sides look ceramic. Many glass experts have been fooled by ceramics that look like glass, which is why I asked for a base shot. A base shot is also very useful glass items. Don't worry I won't be responding to your queries again

Don't take it personally apolonius, We can only go by the photos,  and if we're seeing ceramic then obviously we need more photos.

i don't know who made it, but it's lovely.
i'm wondering if it's Belgian - the name looks French and the style is similar to the pottery (i know, it's glass) of Boch Freres

Yes it's a curiosity. I thought it so distinctive that, combined with the signature, people would leap to give me answers. I don't know enough to compare it to other glass or pottery makers, but it does remind me of the work of several painters; Klee and Klimt being the most obvious. Looks more like secessionist art or pottery than glass, which was perhaps the makers intention.
