About

Vintage ceramic vase by Primavera (circa 1940s). A curvaceous, ovoid body leads to a wide, straight neck with earthenware lip. Stylised birds are perched atop their branches over a dark, lustrous glaze elevating this French formerly utilitarian ceramic to a stunning work of art. Primavera studios were connected to the well known Parisian department store, Printemps. Primavera derives from the Latin for 'spring' whereas Printemps means the same in French. In good overall condition with some minor blemishes on the lip. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. Upon request a video of the piece may be provided. About Primavera: Primavera was the design studio of the iconic Parisian department store, Printemps. A collaboration between Printemps and René Guilleré, founder of the Société des Artistes Décorateurs, came into being in 1912 when Guilleré convinced store executives that the buying public was yearning for modern furniture and art objects produced by artisan workshops. His goal: to make beautifully designed utilitarian objects accessible to the public and to renovate the domestic household landscape. Primavera itself later formed a collaboration with C.A.B., (1919-1947), a start-up innovative ceramic atelier that only counted 20 workers and six ovens to create their wonderful ceramic objects. This collaboration gained both Primavera and C.A.B. a desirable notoriety for being on the cutting edge of design at that time. Dimensions: Height 20.5 cm / 8.1" Diameter 14.5 cm / 5.7".
