Antique Art Nouveau dresser jar or lidded bowl. Deep green glass and gilt bronze. Made in France late 19th century. <P><P>
Measures 3inches high and 4 3/4inches accross.<P><P>
Magnificent rich forest green glass. Round, flattened top to bottom bowl. Shaped neck has 10 facets.
Foot enclosed in a gilt metal ring with raised foliage and berries. 4 quintessial Nouveau flowers are attached to the glass on the sides, each depicting a flower with elegantly scrolling petals and assymetrical foliage. The gilded lid has applied buds, foliage of various sorts and a marvellous medallion with the bust of a woman in 3/4 back view, turning to face the front as she emerges from a flower. Elegant back and shoulders, flowers and bows in hair, radiating sunburst effect. <P><P>
No marks or signature was found. <P><P>
Condition: Glass and metal appear to be in excellent condition, but upon moving one of the side mounts, we found that it left a 'bruise' on the glass which we have shown in one of the pictures. Normally, the metal covers this spot and is probably what caused it in the first place. No cracks or chips found. </p>
