Enameled Vases - French?
« on: June 27, 2008, 07:32:33 PM »
Hi, it's been suggested to me that these may be French (Legras? Mont Joye?). Any here agree/disagree? Any thoughts on a maker? Thanks!

Hi,
I would have expected to see a mark such as this one:

but not everything is marked, from Legras.
Mont Joye is a Legras et Cie trade-mark.
Regards,
Marcus

Andy, if only they were mine! My mom picked these up in a local thrift.  ;)

Marcus, thanks for the information. In your opinion, is there any strong evidence that these are French?

Thanks again!
Shannon

Just an idea

Thanks for the ideas Andy. I'll Google around. When I saw them, I assumed they were Bohemian, but this is not my area of expertise (if I could be said to have one).  ::)

I agree with Marcus.  The style of enamel is more French than Bohemian, and the shape and glasswork seem so, too.   And there's that huge ground pontil on the bottom - Marcus (or anyone), is that a typical characteristic of Legras/Mont Joye?

Hi,
I cannot comment further, as I have only ever handled one piece, which was where the image of the mark came from.
French glass is not my specialist area, despite living here.
Regards,
Marcus

Kristi,
this may just help to confuse more, but ,
http://www.great-glass.co.uk/library/lib3a.htm
half way down 7055 'a gilded & enamelled vase, probably Mont Joye c 1880s'
most pictures on that site are possibly or probably!
but the twist around the neck is similar, i think its a snake, your twist doesnt appear to be.
regards
Andy

I'm not sure what size these are, but aren't they decanters missing their stoppers?  The numbers on the base would be the corresponding number that would be on the stopper too, for easy pairing.  The neck ring would be a stylised snake like Andy suggests, I should think.
