Légras ‘Egg’ Vase
French Art Nouveau enamelled glass landscape vase from Auguste Légras with a scene of sailing boats on a tree lined river, the evening sun giving a pinky-orange glow to the sky and the water.
This is the hard to find egg-shaped vase with the appearance of a breakfast egg having had its top removed.
When these can be found they often have nibbles or worse around the jagged top but this one is in excellent condition with just a few very minor marks to the enamel.
The height is just shy of 15 cm.
