Thank you! The engraved vase, you meant the one with the child? I'm trying to find a way to exhibit it or something. I got in touch with a writer on VSL. The vase is known due to the Expo catalogue, but not been seen for God knows how long. I found out that half way through the 30ies, the engraved pieces were all sold, and as this vase is not illustrated anywhere else, I guess it ended up in private hands. I thought it would be nice to share it, as the others from the series are in museums already.

yes the one with the figure.

The hammered effect might actually be known as martele?

Yes, that's right, martelé comes from martelage.

Just two images to show the engraving, and not because it's my vase but I think it's pretty well done ... I can't even draw like that ... unfortunately I haven't been able to get rid of the reflections.
