French Art Nouveau ''Fleurs de Pommier'' Cameo Glass Vase by Émile Gallé.

A French Art Nouveau ''Fleurs de pommier'' cameo glass vase by Émile Gallé. This ovular vase features crimson leaves and crisp red blossoms on a gold ground. The flora is rendered in slightly translucent glass, which makes a remarkable contrast against the opaque ground. Gallé had a remarkable ability to convey feeling and time in his work. With a stagnant sky and vividly warm color, this vase has the essence of a summer sunset. A similar vase is pictured in: Glass by Gallé, by Alastair Duncan and Georges de Bartha, New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1984, p. 195, plate 295.

Petite Coupe Sur in Enamel and Gold by Thesmar

Petite coupe sur talon in enamel and 18 karat gold by André Fernand Thesmar (1843–1912). In original box. André Fernand Thesmar (1843-1912) was a French enameler. He is credited with bringing the style of soft-paste porcelain back into style, alongside sections with gold foil backings, in the 20th century. He also used the method of plique-à-jour, including works that were often inspired by Japanese and Chinese enameling. He showed his work at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. The floral motifs that adorn this petite coupe sur talon by André Thesmar appear to float due to the expert use of plique-à-jour, a type of enamel that has no backing so that light can shine through it like leaded glass. Thesmar''s ability to create such an exceptional piece in gold and enamel shows a combination of artistry and technical genius that is very rare to come by. A similar coup sur talon is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
