A French Art Nouveau glazed ceramic gourd vase by Louis Majorelle and Keller & Guérin.Majorelle created pieces inspired by nature, with fluid lines, graceful inlays of blossoms and branches, and harmonious custom-made hardware. The functional aspect of this gourd vase is subtly integrated into the naturalistic decoration. The handle takes the form of a tree branch and the beak of a leaf.A similar vase is pictured in: Art Nouveau: The French Aesthetic, by Victor Arwas, London: Andreas Papadakis, 2002, p. 546; and in: Majorelle:Une Aventure Moderne, by Roselyne Bouvier, Paris: La Bibliothèque des Arts, 1991, p. 32, cat. no 24.
