More Than McCoy

Manufacturer: Emile Galle?
Antique enameled glass biscuit jar. This is a stunning green glass jar with acid etched initials in script: 'E, then a flower symbol, then G' in script, see photo #3 and enlarge for a better view. Apparently over 300 signatures were used for Emile Galle items and research has shown the same style E, and I have located an early mark that used a capital G, (most marks had the small 'g' and were written as E. galle, but since this is just initialed it would make sense for each initial to be capitalized. I am very confident this is a Galle piece, but I will let you be the judge. In any event, it is an antique jar and gorgeous. It is embellished with enamel and gilded details. Overall condition is 'good antique'; no chips or cracks. Underside of lid is a little bit dented but this fits into the jar and does not show. It stands 7.75 tall and is quite fat. From the estate of Maxine Coombs, Alpena, MI who had a beautiful collection of antique jars and purchased at a high end auction of her estate in Michigan. 2/09daucc
