Art Deco Acid Etched Glass Vase by Daum
A lovely Art Deco acid etched Daum glass vase with a beautiful green etched through to the clear below with a fabulous design of stylized leaves and flowers. The bottom of the vase also has a faint layer of pink glass over the clear glass. The “Daum Nancy” logo is included in the raised design (see Image 9).
Daum excelled in the production of Art Deco glassware and its designers favored geometric forms as well as thicker and more transparent glass which contrasted with slender shapes and flowing lines of Art Nouveau glassware so popular at the turn of the century. Vases, bowls and lamp shades no longer relied on the glassblowing technique but were cast and decorated with cut and acid etched stylized patterns, as illustrated by this vase. The new manager Paul Daum was chemist by training and experimented with the use of hydrofluoric acid to vary surface textures of the glass.
