Longwy Art Deco French Cloisonné Ceramic Vase

$1,500

About

An Art Deco Longwy French vase with multidimensional details. The rich colors and unusual shape of this piece make it highly collectible. There is a wonderful use of gilding on the ribbed detail and the stepped base. This piece is in excellent condition and has so much depth of design. The Longwy pottery has hundreds of years of tradition, but the “golden age” is surely the 1920s and 1930s when the technique of Ceramic Cloisonne reached a creative peak and combined the use of floral embellishment with bold geometric elements. Longwy is the name of a town where three countries meet. Part of France, it nearly borders Belgium and Germany, and the techniques and advances in pottery in the early part of the 20th Century were shared by these three countries. The faience factory at Longwy began in 1798 and developed its iconic style of craquele (crackle finish) and cloisonné in the late 1800s. Borrowing the concept from ancient Chinese and Japanese Cloisonné which is created with the use of metal bands that form the outlines with enamel colors filling in., Ceramic Cloisonné duplicates this by making deep lines in the surface of the clay piece and then coloring each section with rich color before firing. Outstanding pieces were created in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco Eras. Longwy is well known for perfection in the detailing of the cloisonne execution as exemplified by the design of this exceptional vase.
