TRULY a UNIQUE piece! HAND-CHASED and HAND-CARVED into thousands of tiny details!!! PURE ART DECO, by the French artist N. Collet
who was a GREAT ARTIST without a doubt, not only because of the TREMENDOUS AMOUNT of handiwork that went into this vase, but also because at that time, the ALUMINUM was a NEW, RARE and EXPERIMENTAL METAL!!! They even made jewelry out of aluminum, decorated by diamonds and other precious stones in the early stages upon discovery!!! Even the Great R. Lalique experimented with aluminum at that time by making jewelry boxes and other pieces. SUPER - COLLECTIBLE!
