What’s new at Philip Chasen Antiques?

What’s new at Philip Chasen Antiques?

I will do my best to publish every Monday.


Business has been really good except for the usual slowdown in December. I suppose what I sell is a bit too expensive for Christmas gifts. But it’s January of a new and hopefully better year, so let’s get the party started.

Here are a few of the new items I have for sale.

Gallé blownout Water Lily vase

Gallé produced many models of blownout vases after WWI, some more interesting than others. The Water Lily model is one of the best – the flower is so showy and beautiful. It comes in a variety of colors. This example has exquisite white flowers with green and brown leaves on a sky blue background. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Tiffany 16″ diameter Crocus table lamp

Tiffany lamps have been flying off the shelves. I just got this gorgeous 16″ diameter Crocus lamp with very special mottled glass. It’s dash-numbered 9, indicating it was part of a limited run of lamps, usually 10 or fewer, where the glass was carefully chosen. It’s a superb lamp with a ribbed library base and a fabulous original patina.

Austrian coupe of Diana the Huntress and her dogs

I just got this amazing Austrian coupe of Diana the Huntress holding her dogs on a leash. It’s agate with a chiseled vermeil frame and circular guilloche base with enameled patterns of oak leaves and acorns. The two handles are paved with peridots, each surmounted by a dog whose body is covered with small rubies. The rim of the cup is decorated with water pearls and a leaf, circa 1900. Amazingly it has its original fitted box. It’s petite, but special.

New research on the dating of Emile Gallé glassware

New research on the dating of Emile Gallé glassware

I will do my best to publish every Monday.


Samuel Provost is an Associate Professor in Archeology and Art History of Late Antiquity at the University of Lorraine in Nancy, France. He has done exhaustive research on the dating of Gallé glassware based on the various signatures, as per the chart below. This research updates some of the assumptions from the previous work of others.
