A tall cylindrical form with flaring neck decorated with carved stylized vegetal forms, covered with an extraordinary combination of high- and low-fired copper-oxide glazes. A tour de force of glaze artistry, the decor of this vase consists of swirling areas of blue, gray, and reddish-aubergine hues. An object like this is a reminder of Dalpayrat’s stature among the greatest glaze artists of fin-de-siècle French art pottery.
