Unique HALLOWEEN decoration,'Trick or Treat' gift maybe? AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET HOLD OF A VERY RARE ART NOUVEAU PIECE BY DAUM.. NOT SEEN ON THE OPEN. MARKET VERY OFTEN, MAYBE ONE EVERY 2/3 YEARS.. LIKEWISE GALLE BAT VASES ON A SIMILAR TREND.
A very rare and sought after Art Nouveau piece by DAUM produced c. Prized by private collectors and museums alike such as the Grand Curtius in Liege and Bavarian National Museum. VOL DE CHAUVES-SOURIS' ('Flight of Bats') CASED, INTERNALLY DECORATED, ACID ETCHED CAMEO GLASS VASE. Triform shape, internally decorated, overlaid and acid-etched with bats flying above a town skyline, one side with church spire, signed in cameo Daum Nancy with Cross of Lorraine. Overall shape often described as appearing to be owl form, however true intention is of a roosting bat when inverted.
Condition overall very good, rich and vivid mottled yellow/orange colouration especially the blood red bat swarm rising from the landscape/church spire purple grey base. Has been put back together pretty well however not fully restored.Would say that although evident, doesn't detract from the overall decorative look as shows very nicely. PRICED ACCORDINGLY TAKING THIS INTO ACCOUNT. Please look at images as these form part of the description.
