Authentic Emile Galle' vase of 1876
This vase (authentic Emile Gallé, signed) belongs to the first production of Gallé 1876, when, after the transparent glazing, born said glasses "opaque", and multiply the techniques: craquellée, fumée, métallisée, oxidée, mouchetés, marbrés and soufflée de bulles, and inclusions of sheet metal (gold, silver, Platinum) (source from encyclopedias).French Wikipedia : « ……. Gallé ajoutait des couches nouvelles …….des inclusions de metal, avant de souffler la pièce de cristal, de la retravailler d'inclusions nouvelles, d'appliques, de feuilles d'or ou d'argent."(silver or gold leaves). Am.Wikipedia : "……..He continued to incorporate experimental techniques into his work, such as metallic foils…"
This vase Galle' that we put on sale it is different from the production of the typical Galle' vases all known today(the floral decorations at the Cameo, colored and acid relief) because it belongs to the production of the years from 1870 to 1890, and right on the production of vases "métalizés" (metalized) with inclusions of elements in silver(or gold).

Also, in particular, this vase is exceptional because it has an artistic style that is an avant-garde of the emerging Art Nouveau and seem to anticipate the later "art deco" style. In this vase, Galle has had a miraculous inspiration for the art that became famous a few decades later.

Galle 'is not yet known and not always signs his works. When it does, the signature is below the base of the vase.
This vase, signed, is made with the technique "métallisée"(metalized) with inclusion of foils of real silver. After this phase comes the known and famous production "cameo" at beginning very artisanal craft. In 1890 began the first experiments of "chemical process" to produce "cameo" vases on a large scale to meet the growing demand more 'high of glass vases by Emile Gallé, which has become famous. Here now comes the big production "Gallé" typical vases all known today . Now no more signing at the base of the vase Gallé but sideways, like a decorative element in the same colour of the decoration.

Height 5,70 inch Perfect condition.
