PW2546. Rare Georges Raspiller, Nancy, France, etched, carved, and wheel-polished floral Museum Piece Vase c. 1921-1931. Raspiller was a lesser known Art Nouveaux glass artisan. I believe he worked for Galle and even signed his pieces Galle then as did all the Galle factory workers. It was the brand, not the artist. Condition excellent. No chip, damage, or repair. The base shows minimal wear. Signed G. Raspiller. Height is 5 11/16 inches; the vase is 2 1/2 inches in diameter; weight is seven ounces.  $425


PW2582. Legras, France. Early 20th Century 11 1/2 inch tall etched, carved, and wheel-polished Museum Piece Vase. Leaves and berries. The pattern repeats three leaves and berry clusters around the middle and three without berries above. Stunning piece! Beautiful carving over mottled white and translucent peach. Condition excellent. No chip, damage, or repair. The base shows minimal wear. Signed Legras. Base etched “Made in France”. Height is 11 1/2 inches; the vase is 5 1/2 inches in diameter; weight is three pounds and three ounces.  $975

 
 
 
 
 
 

PW2547. D’Argental c. 1919-1925 3 5/8 inch tall etched, carved, and wheel-polished floral Museum Piece Vase. It is simply elegant how the powerful blossoms sand out against the golden amber sky. No chip, damage, or repair. The base shows minimal wear. Signed D’Argental. This was the signature used by Paul Nicholas, former chief designer at Galle, when he worked at Saint Louis. Some consider his work as good or better than Galle’s.  Height is 3 5/8 inches; the vase is 2 5/8 inches in diameter; weight is six ounces.  $475

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

PW2378. Cristallerie de Pantin (de Vez) c. 1900 5 1/2 inch tall Mountain Scene Museum Piece Vase. Well executed etched and wheel-polished nicely colored translucent vase with a house on an island in a mountain lake – a lovely scene accentuated by sunset colors including beautiful translucent cranberry at the rim. The de Vez signed pieces were the top end for Pantin and are more rare than other more common Pantin lines. “All done in great detail” …  a mark of considerable artistic ability in glass” … “should be acquired because there was only a limited quantity of them, and they are normally quite delightful.” [Grover] Condition excellent. No chip, damage, or repair. The base shows minimal wear. Height is 5 1/2 inches; the base is 2 11/16  inches in diameter; weight is ten ounces.  $475
