Value of Wheel Carved Galle Vase

Wheel Carved Galle Vase

By using two and three layered glass, Galle designed floral and other patterns which were displayed by carving the glass layers in such a way as to reveal the colored layers beneath the surface. By gradually thinning down successive layers he could obtain an enormous range of color shades and effects. He employed a type of lathe with a variety of emery, copper, lead or wooden wheels of dimensions ranging from fairly large ones down to the tiniest. He also devised a vertical lathe for greater flexibility. In addition, a variety of hand tools were used to obtain certain detailed effects. Wheel-carving was used in conjunction with nearly every other technique on some vessels. In the 1890’s Galle produced a few chunky, very thick-walled vessels which were then deeply carved to produce an effect akin to a relief-sculptured panel.
