This is a vase. It was designed by Emile Gallé and manufactured by Gallé and Etablissement Gallé. It is dated late 19th–early 20th century and we acquired it in 1996. Its medium is glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
In 1891, Daum Frères, a prominent glassworks in Nancy, France, operated by
brothers Auguste and Antonin Daum, opened a decoration studio to augment
their fine glassware. Daum’s chief decorator of 30 years, artist Henri Bergé
(French, 1870-1937), made hundreds of watercolor studies from plants in
Nancy’s botanical gardens for use by designers at the factory as well as in his
teaching. In 1897, a formal drawing school was established at the factory with
courses taught by Bergé and fellow designer Jacques Gruber.
