Object History

Emile Gallé, French 1846 ~ 1904 – Following his fathers love for glassworks, he settled in Nancy and set up his own glass studio in 1873 where he initially made classical forms of glass with classical, intricate, enamelled designs. Throughout the 1890’s Gallé won awards at international exhibitions and recognition through commissions and popular demand for his work. His techniques and style were copied by many other glassmakers who advertised their glass as “Gallé style”. He was a major influence on the Art Nouveau movement.

Object Condition

Excellent Original Condition

Please note that our items are genuine antiques with considerable age. It is therefore normal that they will show some signs of wear and handling to the surface. This change to the surface is known as ‘patina’ and confirms the age of the item. Patina is considered desirable and beneficial to the value unless there is damage, restoration or the original surface has been badly worn away. ‘Excellent condition’ is a term used to show that the item does not have any issues that would materially affect its value.
