Glass cased, acid-etched and cameo cut in landscape scene
Two colour cased vase - white over turquoise blue. The floral design is in a distinctive naturalistic style, but relating to Art Nouveau design in the curving lines of stems and flower buds, petals, and leaves. The carving is of good depth, the design standing in sharp relief and colour contrast. Slight uneveness in turquoise blue ground.
Clear glass with red overlay, engraved stallion and hound on frosted ground, clear red borders at rim and outlining flat-cut flutes at base.
Beaker of clear glass with blue overlay and engraved figures. One panel shows a crowned male figure seated on a chair, holding sword and ale glass. Plaque at base of chair with word "gandnuus". In reverse panel two men seated at table, one with stringed musical instrument, bith holding drinking glasses. The partitions between the two main decorated panels are ornamented with an engraved styled foliate design. An engraved band in an arch design around stem of tumbler, and radiating clear blue cutting under base. All other engraving matt on frosted ground.
Commemorative wine glass
A Jacobite commemorative wineglass with round funnel bowl on plain stem and plain conical foot. The bowl is engraved with typical six-petalled heraldic rose on thorned stem with foliage; the reverse with single oak leaf.
Alabaster glass, mould-blown and tooled, cut and painted with gilt decoration. The epergne is made in nine pieces. Mould-blown spreading baluster pedestal with cylinder on top to accomodate tall trumpet vase, both white alabaster glass. Held between them is a thick glossy apple-green alabaster glass plate (probably blown and spun out because it shows concentric striations) which is held horizontally between the pieces. This is very well-polished and has notches around the edge to hold six removable horns or cornucopia with cut, bevelled and cusped edges. Similar edge to the large central vase. Gilt rococo motifs painted on the horn flower holders.
Large vase, blown and tooled opaque, white, opaline glass with applied cast glass decoration. Tall baluster form with constricted neck and outward-flaring, fire-polished rim. Well-polished pontil. Applied to either side near the shoulder are large, oval, relief heads of river gods in cast, opaque, white glass. These can be identified as classical river gods because they are middle-aged with beards and have their hair wreathed with rushes and reeds. Probably the largest size of this vase made by Baccarat. Pieces with these applied medallions are uncommon.
Large beaker vase, mould-blown fine quality opaque white glass which resembles porcelain painted with enamel and gold decoration. Tall, Chinese "gu" or beaker form, flaring out at top and spreading out at base with a wide, raised centre band of convex moulding and a wider one at the bottom. Painted in naturalistic enamel colours with a single column of flowers: purple and red fuschia at the top, pale pink roses down the middle and purple and blue balloon flowers at the bottom. Pale, matt, blue enamel band at fire-polished rim and around foot. Central band painted opaque matt royal blue (French blue) overlaid with narrow bands of matt black with matt gold lines, well-polished pontil and base.
Banjo shaped vase, white ground with soft blue and green floral pattern, possibly violas or violets
Cameo bud vase; amber and colourless ground, with design of trailing stem of sweet peas curving around the body of the vase from the flat cut rim. Sweet pea designs in shades of mauve, shading according to colour of ground.
Deep amber brown vase moulded in Parakeet pattern
Colourless camphor moulded glass vase with matt finish and clear glass rim
Richly coloured orange and blue/green irridescent glass vase with two applied green irridescent leaf-shaped handles rising from the circular base. The leaf-handles curve outwards from the base of the vase, reconnecting around the main body to form the handles. The rim is evenly fluted
Two layer opaque coloured, cameo glass, acid-etched in stylized geometric pattern inspired by flowers (wisteria ?). The design is both abstract and decorative. The inner layer is yellow with pale yellow streaking. The surface is matte. The outer layer is a deep orange with red streaking around the base of the vase, rising to to mottled dark brown at the full convexity and everted rim area. The incised script 'Le Verre Francais' indicates a line of art glass, vases, bowls, lamps, urns and ewers that used this trademark exclusively.
Pâte-de-verre tray, moulded and coloured in the form of a lily pad and flower, on which a bee has alighted. The tray is a light shade of green, darkening in the flower and bee area due to the high relief providing additional density. The moulding is naturalistically sculpted, and typical of Walter design. Some works also bear the name of a collaborator, for example, Henri Bergé, but not in this case.
Moulded, circular inkstand, with grooved pen rest and covered inkwell. The stand is coloured in a greenish-yellow at the front, (before the pen rest) then merges to an orange-brown tone from which rises the inkwell. The inkwell is sculpted to resemble the main stem of a wild rose bush, while strewn over the stand are branches coloured deep green with red-brown thorns and rosehips, the latter in a particularly rich red-brown. The cover is surmounted by a bee which acts as the finial. The moulding is naturalistically sculpted, and typical of Walter Studio productions.
