(A) Surely this unsigned Moderne masterpiece is by Daum, n'est-ce pas? The design is acid-etched, of course... It's about 9 inches high. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

(B) Ah, the grand maitre, Monsieur D'Avesn! Here's a stunner by Da Man, surrounded by rosewood, of course. Bold anemones float above a tantilizing geometric motif. It's about nine inches tall and heavy, the way we like -- and expect -- our French glass.

Somehow this seems to have vanished; did I sell it? Perhaps, although I have no record of the sale! If it resurfaces, I'll strike all this gibberish!

 

 

(C) A design masterpiece by Andre Hunebelle -- one of my all-time favorite designers! Some MORON (oh, excuse my French) drilled it for use as a table lamp base. There's a little chip on the top rim too. Well, the French never let little "imperfections" get them down, can you be forgiving, too, and just let the beauty in? It's 8 1/4 tall.

(D) A signature piece of the master glass designer and craftsman, Pierre d'Avesn, entitled "Feuilles something-or-other" Ha-ha. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

 

(E) No, it's not blue, that's just the impact of the daylight streaming through the window. It's got a black glass base, however, and the rest, as you can see, is just gorgeously etched, and why wouldn't it be, marked "Sevres." Art Deco enough for ya?! It stands tall, about 10 inches.

(F) But if perchance you are looking for blue, why look further? This ribbed beauty is tall, at 13 inches, and it's 8 1/2 in diameter. I believe it's American. A real "presentation piece" for a huge floral display... (e-mail Jack for a price)
