Daum Nancy Cameo & Enamel Art Glass Bowl – circa 1895.
A beautiful colour in this cameo glass bowl by Daum. The cameo flowers are acid cut and then painted in enamels – a technique Daum did frequently in the mid 1890’s. The bowl measures 8 inches across and the bright yellow background makes the coloured leaves and flower stand out that much more.
Signed on body, Daum Nancy with cross of Lorraine.
