Offered is this very rare Daum Nancy Pate de Verre snail figurine, made around 1920 (while Argy-Rousseau and Amalric Walter pate de Verre figurines come up to the marketplace on a somewhat regular basis, one rarely encounters an original Daum Nancy Pate de Verre figurine). The figurine is 5 3/4 inches (14,5 cm) long, 5 1/4 inches (13,5 cm) wide and 2 7/8 inches (7,5 cm) tall. It is in great condition. Signed 'Daum Nancy' with the cross-of-Lorraine (see picture). Most likely, Joe Descomps, working at Daum Brothers and whose favorite theme was snail figurines, made this piece (for reference, please see page 105 of Judith Miller's book, '20th Century Glass' for a Daum Pate de Verre snail figurine - shown in last picture here for your convenience).
