Pair of Large Art Nouveau Faience Vases with Floral Motifs


Date: ca. 1900

 

This pair of large faience (i.e. glazed earthenware) vases have an incredibly decorative silhouette; these are statement pieces!


The shape of these vases are a kind of upside down trumpet shape with a nicely flared rim and narrow foot. The décor is also quite special seeing as the vases have two very different kinds of flower motifs on each side; if you want variety, just turn them around, and hey, you have another pair of vases… on one side there are enameled pink/white flower and leaf motifs, and the other side features leaf motifs painted in black. The main part of the body has an olive green background and the base/foot has a brown coloured glaze. A 5 point flower motif in raised enamel has been applied all over the background .The inside is coated with a turquoise coloured crackle glaze.


Manufactory numbers have been painted onto the base, but there is no distinguishing makers mark to assign these vases to a designer or manufactory with certainty. Their design is very similar to work done by Emile Granger (for Sèvres) and by De Bruyn (for Fives Lille).

 

Dimensions: 40,7 cm high, 13,3 cm mouth opening, ± 20 cm wide at widest point, 1,850 g/vase


Condition:

Good. The vase’s bodies and motifs are in very good condition. The inner rim of one of the vases has a small crack to the glaze (see photo) and the base shows some chipping and wear. The glazing has formed drip blobs to the base.
