Two ceramic Emile Galle vases after an etching by Jacques Callot (France 1890)EMILE GALLÉ (1846-1904)
Description / ExpertiseTwo ceramic Galle vases after an etching of Spanish soldiers by Jacques Callot. Galle was very impressed and influenced by his famous fellow inhabitant of Nancy. Emile Galle studied the etchings by Callot in the museum of Lorraine in Nancy. The etchings are still in the museum. As the ceremic by Galle is very soft, most of the times there are imperfections. These two vases are no exception. They have old restorations, cramp-irons to keep the handles together and small chips on the rim. The glaze however is perfect and so are the pictures of the soldiers. A very rare pair. Signed and numbered on the bottom.
