Rare French Art Deco Gabriel Fourmaintraux Desvres Pot Turquoise Ceramic Vase

About

An astonishing piece from a pottery works run by Gabriel Fourmaintraux in Desvres in the Pas de Calais region of Northern France, after joining his family’s firm in 1905. The artist was trained at Sevres in Art Nouveau Japoniste techniques in ‘grès flamme' (stoneware with variegated flame-like glazes) which influenced Desvres to produce ceramics outside of the firm's usual production. They notably collaborated with painter Fernand Léger. This particular pot has the characteristic mark of the firm - a circular cache often almost illegible, as in this example, reading ‘F D’ within “DESVRES FRANCE’, as well as a series of numbers. The stamp is usually indistinct but is easily recognisable to those familiar with this pottery’s production. An extremely unusual piece of art with fascinating prismatic shape where it’s profile steps up or down in a striking manner. It has a flowing glaze characteristic of the firm’s Art Nouveau origins, which runs from a pale turquoise to red effects with very delicate metallic and multicolour crystalline lustre appearance, but whereas many of their forms are organic and more conventional in origin this one is unusually of an Art Deco shape making it particularly special. A rare collectors item, or a unique accessory which would fit into both a traditional or contemporary glam decor. This is in the same beautiful tones of as our vintage Liberty of London silk cushion illustrating an exquisite scene of birds on a tree, they would look magnificent together.
