  • Description
    An Important and Monumental Art Nouveau Ormolu-Mounted Ceramic "Exhibition" Vase, C. 1895

    This important and monumental vase was done by four different artists in the late 19th century:

    Alphonse Adolphe Lamarre, French, 1837 - 1912 (Artist who designed the vase)

    Paul Louchet, French (founder of bronze mounts) (Founder)

    Charles Pillivuyt Porcelain Manufactory, French, Paris, 1853 - 1922 (Manufacturer)

    Louis Chalon, French, born 1866 (modeler of mounts) (Modeler)

    "An Art Nouveau Collaboration"

    The vase in this case is an exceptional example of the collaboration between numerous artists during the late 19th century. The ceramic was made by Alphone Adolphe Lamarre (1837-1922) for the Charles Pillivuyt Porcelain Manufactory; the gilded bronze mounts, modeled by sculptor Louis Chalon and cast by Paul Louchet.

    Spectacularly mounted naturalist vase; the base dressed and balustered, the neck finished in double openwork bulb, the surface describing sinuous reliefs. Polychrome glazed ceramic in Beige, blue, and green. The shoulder is decorated with a gilded bronze roundel with five ormolu bronze female dancers; the trains of the dresses form the junctions. The base, also in gilded bronze, with geometrical motifs.

    There is another vase done by the same four artists currently at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts which was displayed at the Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1898 and awarded a first prize. A further vase was on display at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative Arts in Turin, Italy, in 1902.
