Large vintage mid century modern French art glass vase made by Art Vannes France. Art Vannes France is famous for these wonderfully exuberant pieces of lead crystal. True "Mad Men" 1950's style. This company was in business only 20 years, from 1950 to 1970, so its pieces are now more and more rare. This piece bears the distinctive diamond shaped mark of Art Vannes on the base. Measures 12.5 inches high, 12.5 inches across the top, and has a well that tapers from 8 to 3.75 inches.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
