GABRIEL FALGUIERES Designed as a carved hardstone profile of Orpheus as he floats down the river Hades, encased by a vari-cut diamond and textured gold stylized wave, enhanced by two sculpted gold floral motifs, mounted in gold, circa 1901
A supreme Daum Nancy cameo vase featuring a landscape shrouded in snow. A yellow river meanders through the isolated setting as a flock of sixteen black birds are in flight or have just perched in barren birch trees, gathering for the evening roost. This tranquil setting is silhouetted against a beautiful mottled sky of blue. Enamel signed "Daum Nancy" with the croix of Lorraine.
