This is a Daum Pate de Verre Figs Bowl or Vase #03528. It is a magnificent and some of Daum's best work. Labelled "Coupe Pate De Verre Figues" in French. The design features figs and lizards on a honey amber colored background.
Black figs are scattered aound the body. Look closely and you will also see small lizards climbing the foliage. The high relief design is really striking as can be seen in our photos. It is translucent and captures light beautifully.The detailing and interplay of light and colors can be captivating. This is the largest piece in Daum's fig series. It measures about 12 inches by 12 inches at the widest points and 8 inches tall. It weighs in at almost 16 pounds. The shape is such that it works equally well as a bowl or large vase. The bowl comes in Daum's original box with foam fitted inserts. There is no damage and there are zero defects. I coud not find a scratch or a fleabite. Signed Daum France and we guarantee authenticity. This piece was hand made in Daums Nancy France workshops by skilled artisans. Pate de Verre items are created from a paste of different colored crushed glass particles. These are placed in a mold and then fired in a hot kiln for ten days.
The glass particles fuse together forming an attractive Pate de Verre item. No two Daum Pate de Verre items have the same exact coloration because the particles are distributed differently in the molds.
The ancient lost wax process is used which enables Daum to execute designs that would not be possible with traditional press molding.
