Extra Large & stunning Art Nouveau art glass flower bowl by VERLYS FRANCE (35 x 8 cm). A heavy piece and exceptional quality cast glass.

Excellent Condition - no chips or cracks!

This is a genuine French made 1910's peace - came from an estate near Lyon.

Most often associated with the Verlys glass name are crystal etched bowls with a three part design. It shows a typical Verlys technique with the reverse of the bowl frosted by acid etching, and the most raised portions of the design were polished by hand to create gleaming clear highlights, resulting in a dramatic three dimensional effect. Three Iris flowers with exquisite detail moulded in high relief swirled around a watery whirlpool background. The inside of the bowl is clear flat crystal and the flowers form the feet of the bowl, on the underside. The rim is ground flat, another nice quality touch not found in most manufactured glass today. It strikes by the naturalistic design and the obvious quality of the piece. Most of the glass producers in France (Lalique, Daum, Sabino, Etling) traded designers back and forth; Pierre D'Avesn designed Rene Lalique's famous Serpent vase as well as the Tourbillons vase, two of the most highly priced and extremely collectable pieces of "Lalique". Besides opening his own line in France, he also created many of Verlys's most famous works, like the highly sought-after Mermaid vase. So in many ways, the biggest difference between those pieces of Verlys and Lalique is the name on the bottom. French Verlys pieces almost always carry a moulded signature, with the word France included.
