French Art Nouveau "Mimosa" Vase by Daum(194 views)
Description: An artistic French Art Nouveau mimosa vase by Daum featuring pink cameo overlay naturalistically modeled as a languid orchid. The influences of Japanese culture permeated fin de siècle Paris and could be felt in museums and in homes. Similarly, a nascent fascination with natural forms, found in publications of the day like Ernst Haeckle's Kunstformen der Natur, manifested itself in a proliferation of flowers in French art and design and in an intese investigation of flora where artists rivaled botanists. This piece borders on abstraction. The Orchid, splayed open and surrounded by copious pollen spores, is imbued with feminine sensuality. The imaginative color palate and curving lines surpass the glass design standards of the day and render this piece a beguiling objet d'art. Circa 1900. (Item No.: 14544)
