I've always liked this vase.. Le Verre Francais. The Amourettes Pattern..
A website claims that Schneider Glass has as much prestige these days as Galle, but I don't think so.
I still like my vase though. Below is a picture I scanned of my Aunt Flo posing in her home with the vase at right. Years and years ago. Possibly the 40's.She was born in 1906.
The marble babies we also owned at one time. But my mother always needed money and she sold them to a friend. They weighed a tonne. And baby in the middle had a chip off the nose.
The thing on top of Flo's head is a dragon mirror, of carved wood, given to my grandfather, Jules Crepeau, by the Chinese Community of Montreal as he was Director of Services. It is with a cousin, I believe. A little paw is holding the mirror and you can see the wings. No head though.Anyway, there are a couple of books out about Schneider, but expensive, even to buy of Abebooks. He's Charles Schneider born in Daum in Nancy, where the made all the nice glass, Galle too I think.
But if I had a Galle Marketry vase I would be rich. These sturdy Schneider vases are everywhere... but still nice.
