Byzantine-Inspired Ceramic Vide-Poche by Édouard Cazaux (circa 1950s)

About the Item

Decorative ceramic dish by Édouard Cazaux (circa 1950s). Master ceramicist, Édouard Cazaux, was inspired by antiquities, religion and animal life in his creations. This beautifully decorated ceramic dish, or vide-poche, displays a luxuriant floral motif inspired by the Byzantine world. The age-faded decoration blends a pinkish hue in the flowers with dark leaves and turquoise blue touches. It is this characterful fading of the decoration which lends this dish its subtle beauty. Signed: 'Cazaux' on the underside. In good overall condition with no defects in the structure. Please enjoy the accompanying photos with this listing. Upon request a video will be provided. About the Artist: Édouard Cazaux (1889-1974) was born into a family of potters from Cagnotte in the Landes region of France. Their production of pegas (a sort of jug) was renowned throughout the region. At 18, he went to Paris where he found a job as a turner and returned there to study at the School of Fine Arts and the School of Sèvres. From 1921 Cazaux exhibited works at the Salon des Tuileries, the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs, the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Indépendants. Success followed with exhibits at the Musée de Sèvres and in Galerie Rouard , the Galerie d'Art Contemporain as well as the Galerie Legédé. His prodigious works are inspired by religion, antiquities and animal themes. He is well known for his production of Art Deco pieces as well. In 1937, the three Cazaux brothers (Édouard, Armand and Vincent) won a gold medal at the international exhibition in Paris for a fountain they designed together. Édouard died in 1974. His works are exhibited in French museums, for example, in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and the Musée de Saint-Maur-des-Fossés. Dimensions: H 2.5 cm / 1" W 23 cm / 9.1" D 13.5 cm / 5.3"
