Size: 24 cm tall (9.5 inches), approx 20 cm wide. Condition: Excellent condition, no chips cracks or restoration.The base rim has two small dints which are made during firing (they are under the glaze). A wonderful large vase, c1901, by "le Poete de Grés" from his period at Armentières near Beauvais.
At this time Delaherche, having achieved many accolades for his innovative design in the Art Nouveau movement, was experimenting with glazes on stoneware in the manner of the traditional Beauvais potters, fused with Japanese influenced glaze techniques. The glazes are designed to dribble unevenly over the gently but very deliberately created ribbed form. His work may be considered similar in objective and output to that of William Howson Taylor undertaken around the same time at the Ruskin Pottery in England.
The vase is impressed with the artist's name and the number 6549. Guaranteed in perfect condition, no restoration or damage. The item "Auguste Delaherche, large Art Nouveau stoneware vase with green glaze, c1901" is in sale since Monday, September 23, 2019.
