Rare Gripoix Poured Glass Floral Cachepot

About

These extraordinary table ornaments date from the 1950's Paris. They come from the house of Gripoix which is famous for producing Chanel's poured glass jewelry and pearls from the early 1920's until the late 1980s. These cachepots were completely handmade requiring hundreds of man hours of labor to produce these decorative gems. These floral objets d'art were always custom ordered and were fixtures in the homes of the wealthy and famous, notably the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. As with the jewelry made for the various clients (Chanel, Dior, Patou, Paquin etc.)the elements were hand constructed from various thicknesses of wire into which molten coloured glass has been "poured". The process is difficult and time consuming. When all the flowers, leaves and elements have been created, they are assembled into a handmade gilt metal "basket". The flowers in this particular basket are rendered in soft blue, pink and opal tones with emerald glass leaves. Tiny pastes stones circle the lip of the wirework basket. The decorative work from the house of Gripoix is rare and virtually impossible to locate. We were lucky enough to secure these recently on one of our numerous buying trips to Paris. Offered singly $5500.00 or as a matched pair for $10,000.00 Basket Height 3.5", Diameter 5.5"
