Cameo Glass

A form of decoration produced by carving or etching through fused layers of differently colored glass. First developed in Ancient Rome, the technique experienced a revival during the Art Nouveau movement. Emile Gallé and Daum Nancy produced cameo glass using nature themes in Nancy, France and in the United States Louis Comfort Tiffany produced examples through his Tiffany Studios.
