Rare vase with Clematis, designed by Emile Gallé (1846-1904).
Emile Gallé, the undisputed architect of Art Nouveau, who is joined for historical importance by Antonin Daum, Louis Confort Tiffany and René Lalique, three illustrious glass Masters and with the cabinet-making works of the famous Louis Majorelle.
In glass processing, there are many techniques undertaken by Gallè, variations for one-offs: we have an example of the famous 1902 Les Coprins lamp, which in New York in 1990 was auctioned for 1.4 billion lire (for this lamp there are 4 examples but with variants).
Furthermore, on 13 December 2018, again in New York, at Christie's, the "Lily" glass vase from 1900-1903 was sold for € 392.000.
Emile Gallé died of leukemia in 1904 and his wife Henriette Grim temporarily took over the management of the three factories.
Critics, poets and intellectuals suggested that a "star" be added to the glass, next to the signature, to commemorate a great man of France, a star that will be engraved as a cameo from 1904 to 1906.
The signature did not survive the crisis of 1929, the family members of Gallé that had only successfully carried out glass processing, suffered their definitive collapse in 1930.
The legendary Gallé signature goes through dark times; it is up to 1954, when the most important collection of Gallé glass, which belonged to the King Farouk of Egypt, is put up for auction.
The interest in the works awakens, the market restarts, the retrospectives in museums and private galleries in Europe, America and Japan overlap: the legendary Emile Gallé, with his graceful works, relives.
