"Chinese Accordianist in Cubist Form," Art Deco Sculpture by Primavera



A classic example of Art Deco design heavily influenced by Cubism, this ceramic sculpture depicts a Chinese figure playing an accordian, with the creases of the instrument echoed in the robes of the figure, all enrobed in a creamy glaze with a subtle craquelure effect. This piece was produced by Primavera, a ceramics workshop established by Le Printemps department store in Paris.
