Legras Mont Joye Cameo Glass and Enameled Vase

Lovely Legras Mont Joye cameo glass vase depicting sprays of Violets all around the vase.  The background is cameo cut and frosted chipped ice decor, with cameo cut Violets and leaves.  The Violets are enameled in lavenders, with yellow and magenta centers just like real Violets.  The cameo cut stems and leaves are finely detailed in gold.  The vase is further enhanced with a nice sponge applied gold decor around the ruffled rim.  The body of the vase has twelve optic molded ribs to further enhance the beauty of this vase.   Wonderful work to collect, these Violets pieces came in an array of shapes and sizes such as rose bowls, vases, bowls, and even baskets.

Examples of this exact Legras Mont Joye cameo work are shown in the following reference:
