The violet, milky white and amber glass inlaid and engraved with yellow, violet, black and white butterflies. Engraved mark: Emile Gallé. 17 cm high aus aufgeschmolzenen Plättchen in Orangegelb, Dunkelviolett und Weiß. Die Dekorpartien Emile Gallé (1846-1904) is considered to be one of the major forces in the French Art Nouveau movement. Gallé studied philosophy, botany, and drawing in his youth. He later learned glassmaking at Meisenthal. His early work was executed using clear glass decorated with enamel, but he soon turned to an original style featuring heavy, opaque glass carved or etched with plant motifs, often in two or more colours as cameo glass. His career took off after his work received praise at the Paris Exhibition of 1878. Within a decade of another successful showing at the Paris Exhibition of 1889, Gallé had reached international fame and his style, with its emphasis on naturalism and floral motifs, was at the forefront of the emerging Art Nouveau movement. In 1901 he founded École de Nancy, (Alliance Provinciale des Industries d'art) an Art Nouveau movement with, Victor Prouvé, Louis Majorelle, Antonin Daum and Eugène Vallin in the city of Nancy in Lorraine.
