In this instance, we have what appears to be an Art Deco glass shade in the form of a burning red and orange flame, with cut, angular, geometric formations that are intended to resemble the flickering, fluttering waves of an open flame. The spirit and identifiable aesthetic of the work is quintessentially Art Deco, with its sharp cuts and stylized, angular geometrization of even biomorphic elements that occur in the natural world.The glass is in superb condition, with only one or two tiny'touches' (very slight nicks) on the apex'highs' of the cut crystal forms that populate the sidewalls of the glass. Although it appears to be a piece of Art Deco art glass and presumably a mere glass vase(and a good one at that) upon closer examination, it's apparently something much more specific and the signature'L/G Paris' (Lucien Gau Paris) gives us a very specific clue and essential piece of information, that points to the direction of this magnificent and incredibly beautiful piece of glass, being once a component part and a back lit opaque, frosted glass shade for one of Lucien Gau's lighting creations from the early 20th century, created somewhere between 1920 to 1930 and from the Art Deco period of design. A simply gorgeous piece of early 20th century lighting and an early lighting artifact from Maison Lucien Gau Paris. Good to Very Good overall antique condition.
