Emile Galle Green on Pink Cameo Art Glass Vase circa 1930
Emile Galle French Green on Pink background Cameo Art Glass Vase circa 1930 with forest scene. Authentic and signed appropriately with the Galle signature. Émile Gallé was a French artist who worked in glass, and is considered to be one of the major forces in the French Art Nouveau movement. His career took off after his work received praise at the Paris Exhibition of 1878. Within a decade of another successful showing at the Paris Exhibition of 1889, Gallé had reached international fame and his style, with its emphasis on naturalism and floral motifs, was at the forefront of the emerging Art Nouveau movement.
He continued to incorporate experimental techniques into his work, such as metallic foils and air bubbles, and also revitalized the glass industry by establishing a workshop to mass-produce his, and other artists', designs. The factory would employ 300 workers and artisans at its height, including the notable glassmaker Eugène Rosseau, and remained in operation until 1936. The trees are done with such detail that it looks real. The depth of the layered cameo glass is impressive and creates a 3-D effect which is difficult to reproduce.
