Art Nouveau Narcissus Vase
Pretty little Art Nouveau baluster shaped green glass vase with applied enamel narcissi and leaves. The flowers, with their shallow trumpets, are seen just on the front face of the vase.
At the foot a typical Art Nouveau design detail completes the decoration, although there are also traces of the original gilding around the rim.
Viewed from the back, the shape of the applied pattern can clearly be seen through the glass.
Unsigned but dating from the early 1900’s and, as was typical with good glass produced at that time, it is well made and in a good thickness.
A fraction under 20 cm tall, with the base having a diameter of 7.5 cm.
