A Pair Of Rare Art Nouveau Val St Lambert Bronzecopper-Clad Svelt Baluster Vases

$169.99 1 Bid Sold

Seller: fra.angelo (219) 100%, Location: Redlands, California, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 253260930725 These vases are rare specimens of Val St Lambert art de metal et de verre. This Belgian company produced art glass and crystal glass on the main, but also pioneered in the enhancement of glass art by encasing it in metal. More common pieces are those with reticulated or pierced design to expose the glass and bring out the decorative patterns. These pieces are fully and firmly copper/bronze-clad with beautifully etched Art Nouveau decoration depicting distressed oak leaves and acorns over a myriad of tiny maize-like scrolls. Both vases exude subdued elegance. Great decorative element for mantel or sideboard or parlor table. The metal exterior is in excellent condition. Here is the issue: the cobalt blue glass liner on both are shattered. Please examine photos closely. This condition is around the mouth opening and goes down to about 2 inches into the neck. Because of the metal support, the glass is held together except in one where a small sliver of glass is missing. (Photos 9 & 10) Also, because of the full metal wrap the issues are "concealed"; the appearance of the vases are not altered. Both are marked with the old rounded VSL. Each vase is 13 3/4" tall; the opening is 2 3/4" and it is 12" around the belly (app 4" wide). Because of the age & aforementioned condition, these vases are being sold as they are. Style: Art Nouveau, Maker: Val St Lambert, Original/Reproduction: Original, Primary Material: Glass & bronze/copper, Age: 1890-1914, Color: cobalt blue liner/copper clad, Country/Region of Origin: Belgium
