Georges De Feure Art Nouveau Glass Vase
Georges De Feure Art Nouveau Glass Vase, c1915
This glass vase was designed by Georges De Feure (1868-1943.)
De Feure was a well-known Symbolist artist before becoming a key figure of the Art Nouveau scene in Paris. He designed many pieces for the Art Nouveau pavilion at the Exposition Universelle of 1900, including a handful of decorative objets in glass.
This vase is moulded in cloudy amethyst glass with ‘slag’ inclusions that give it the appearance of being carved out of a piece of rock. It features a very crisp freize of Classical dancers and musicians. It is in exceptional condition, with De Feure’s moulded signature on the base.
