Prestigious French glassmakers Baccarat - responsible for some of the most beautiful glassware of the 19th Century - were the manufacturers behind this stunning enamel-painted opaline glass vase. More specifically, it is likely that the enamelist Jean-Francois Robert (French, active mid-19th Century) was responsible for the beautiful floral decorations which adorn the exterior of the vase. Robert trained initially as a decorator for the Sevres Porcelain Factory, before decorating opalines for Baccarat from 1843.

One of Robert's great successes was to develop a technique which would permit the decoration of crystal, and it is this which has been used to great effect in the production of this vase. It features gilding around its base and rim in the form of scrolls and foliate motifs, while the body of the vase is enameled to show beautiful still life scenes of bouquet of flowers on a white ground.

The vase measures 50cm in height, which makes it perfect for the display of larger, more opulent bouquets.
