Paul and Albert Thouvenin (1887-1921) came from a family of glass makers, Vallerysthal & Portieux in the Vosges Lorraine, and took over an old glass factory in 1887. They mainly produced cameo glass in the art nouveau style.
Here we see an art nouveau cameo pear-shaped vase with a landscape and mountain decor. A frosted acid layer has been etched on a clear glass, with three acid-etched glass layers in cameo applied above it, creating a decor of white mountains, rocks and dark brown leafed trees. This creates a beautiful three-dimensional image. Nicely polished pontille at the bottom. Can be dated around 1900.
