During the Art Nouveau period celebrated Belgium glass house -- Val St. Lambert -- created a cameo glass technique which the used to create works of delicate art etched into crystal. At times it was Vaseline or Uranium based crystal. These uranium based crystal pieces are very rare and have become prized by serious glass collectors.Here we have a stunning and very rare Val St. It is Vaseline crystal with an overlay of Ruby Red Crystal that combines the etched cameo glass technique with the cut to clear technique to create a very fine piece of art. The cameo pattern is a delicate flower rose? Surrounded by leaves that ring the middle third of the vase with an etched style that provides the look of a frosted background. Above and below this section are two rows of cut to clear (or cut to vaseline) rectangles. This is a dramatic piece with the deep ruby over the yellow tinged vaseline glass.
Under black light, this piece shines in a very bright uranium green, but even without the black light the green uranium seems to be busting out at the edges. The piece has a beautiful clear ring when tapped.The piece is from too early a period to be signed by the delicate work and techniques make this unmistakable Val St. This is for a serious collector. The piece is sized 5.5 by 5.5 by 5.
