This is a tall French cameo glass vase made by Legras. Except for the fact that the vase was drilled for a lamp-base (it was never used as a lamp), the vase is in excellent condition. It is properly signed in cameo. The vase is 16 inches (40 cm) tall and 7 inches (17,5 cm) wide at the shoulder. Fire-polished rim and polished pontil. A similar-shaped Legras vase is shown in Blount's book, 'French Cameo Glass' (shown in second-last picture here for your convenience). Like the Blount vase, this vase is also marked, 'Made in France Exclusively for Paris Decorators' on its bottom ('Paris Decorators' was the New York based distributor for Legras and other upscale French art glass houses).
