tiny NANCY vase?
« on: February 08, 2013, 03:43:38 PM »
All I know about this tiny vase is (Nancy) and I'm pretty sure the design it is painted.

It measures less than 2" or 4 1/2mm.

Would like to know the artist and year produced or anything else known.

Could it be Daum Nancy???

 I can't read what's above the Nancy, but it doesn't look as if it reads Daum. However, I don't know much about Daum.
Cheers, Sue (M)

It looks like it says Glessiere, so I did a search and came up to a few Glessiere Nancy results.  Here is one of the. Hope this helps!

If anybody has a keyboard which does accents it might help!
But I think (our) Nancy has identified it beautifully, whatever"it" is.

"Whatever "it" is"...my sentiment exactly. ::)

It is all French to me,

I've looked up glessiere and glissiere thinking they might mean glassmaker or glassworker, but it doesn't appear so, so I think it may be a name. I've had a good old google are there are certainly plenty of results but it may be hard to actually dig deeper. Hopefully you'll get some input from someone with relevant expertise.

@sue - glad to know I'm 'our Nancy'!  ;D
