Garniture by Légras
Three piece French Art Nouveau enamelled glass garniture made by Auguste Légras circa 1900.
Comprising a pair of upright vases and a jardiniere, all decoratively enamelled with a lakeside scene featuring a pair of swans.
With bullrushes and water lilies to one side, a tall tree on the other and rolling hills in the background, it depicts a peaceful and idyllic scene.
The upright vases are a proper pair with the swans on each one facing a different way.
All the backs are finished with a greeny-yellow frosted look, the scenic design showing on the fronts only.
The tall vases measure just a fraction under 27 cm in height, and the jardiniere has an overall width of 26 cm.
Signed Leg for Legras on both vases, the jardiniere being unsigned.
