Ernest-Baptiste Leveillé had a glass and ceramic selling business at 74 Boulevard Haussmann. He was a member of the Paris 'art-glass' fraternity and a pupil (later partner) of Eugène Rousseau who owned a similar shop at 43 rue Coquillière. In 1885, Lévéillé took over Rousseau's workshop retaining Eugène Michel and Alphonse Georges Reyen as chief designers and decorators. This vase is in mottled and splashed glass imitating agates.
