Cylindrical vase with tapering sides, decorated with painted aloe vera leaves and iridescent luster glaze. Probably decorated by Lévy-Dhurmer, for Clément Massier Poterie d’art, Golfe-Juan. Although unsigned, the decoration of this vase bears the hallmarks of Lévy-Dhurmer’s style, including refined painting, beautiful “cellular” drips, and the combination of brilliant gem and subdued earth tone colors. Like many of Lévy-Dhurmer/Massier pieces, this one uses flora of the Golfe-Juan/Vallauris area for its decor.


Marks: Clément Massier Golfe-Juan, AM.
