An extraordinary collaborative masterwork by Thomas Webb and Sons in partnership
with the periods best glass engraver William Fritsche. Webb and Sons were considered
the best glassmakers of the period and probably the most famous Victorian glasshouse
in England. The firm was known for innovative design and techniques in glassmaking,
particularly in the areas of cameo glass and crystal engraving.
William Fritsche (1853-1924), considered to be one of the finest engravers/cutters of
crystal in the world, worked in the classical style, engraving naturalistic motifs. He
pioneered the style of decoration known as rock-crystal engraving, he was inspired by
17th century Bohemian Hochschnitt high-relief glass decoration. Fritsche, whose work
was exhibited at the 1878 Paris Exposition produced some of the most extraordinary
“carved rock crystal” ever produced.

The French artist Emile Galle (1846-1904) reached the zenith of his career with his art glass during the
last quarter of the 19th century; he enjoyed great success at the Paris Exhibition of 1878 and again in
1889. He was also at the forefront of the emerging Art Nouveau movement in the late 19th century. He
was best known for naturalism; floral motifs and some of his experimental techniques with metallic foils,
air bubbles etc. In 1901 his crowning achievement was a founder of the Art Nouveau movement known
as de Cove de Nancy, the Nancy School in partnership with Victor Provet, Louis Majorelle,
Anthony Daum and Lucien Vallent. (Excellent condition; height: 12”.)
