The absence of a makers signature makes a definitive attribution problematic whilst the influence of Daum is quite obvious in the standard of glassmaking and suggestive of a maker in the Nancy or the local Lorraine region. This may have been made at the Daum owned Verrerie Belle Etoile in Croismare.Alternatively, the blood orange mottles with blue was favoured by David Gueron (Degue) who also produced glass vases blown into metal mounts. We do not believe this frame to be by Louis Majorelle or Edgar Brandt. I have been involved in the antiques business since 1971.
My career took a leap forward when I joined Bonhams in 1976. Some five years later I became head of the Decorative Arts department.
