French Double Head Art Deco ROBJ Paris Signed Ceramic Jar Bonbonniere, 1930

About

Unique ROBJ double face figure decorative ceramic Bonbonniere from the period of 1925-1930. Original condition, no repairs, restoration. The particular design is not one I’ve seen before. This face is on both the front and back sides of the base. Beautiful 1920s style woman with narrow exaggerated features rendered in the typical ROBJ style using bright colors and metallic gold enamel. ROBJ Jean Born began his work in 1908 under the name he created, ROBJ. An Industrial designer through the ‘teens, after WWI he began to add artistic and decorative items in porcelain. He died in a car accident in 1922 at the very beginning of the Art Deco period and a shareholder in his firm, Lucien WIllmetz took over the management. It is WIllmetz who really influenced and promoted the ROBJ style. With the support of sculptors, model makers and technicians he created a range of “art trinkets in ceramics” which were produced through 1931. The characteristics of ROBJ pieces are very much in keeping with the styles of the times and they achieved immediate success. Perhaps the most popular items of their line were the liquor decanters introduced in 1928. Containers for tobacco, incense and bonbons were added to their lines of sculptural figurines. ROBJ pieces are whimsical but also elegant, modern and original. Several eminent factories were employed in the production of ROBJ designs: Manufacture de Sevres, Villeroy et Boch in Luxembourg and factories in Limoges among them.
