A monumental glass vase decorated in the "decalcomania" style. With transfers depicting birds, figures, flowers and insects on an eau de nile ground.
Decalcomania was invented in the mid eighteenth century possibly by Simon Francois Ravenet, an engraver who moved to England and sold the technique known as decalquer or French for tracing paper. The craze for transfer printing on both glass and ceramics reached its height in between 1860 and 1890 before it became mechanised in the early twentieth century.
With modern giltwood base and lid.
