French Art Nouveau plique-à-jour enamel and silver vase by Descomps

A French Art Nouveau plique-à-jour enamel and silver vase by Joë Descomps with enamelled panels by Eugene Feuillatre. This vase features semi-translucent green and blue plique-à-jour enamel panels set into an ornate silver body. The lightness and delicacy of the enamel in this piece reflects the French meaning of plique-à-jour, which is "letting in daylight". The silver framework of the vase shows Descomps liberally using the whiplash curves and arabesques of the Art Nouveau movement. Abstract and curvaceous lines rise up from the bottom of the vase to create an architectural platform for the silver cup on top to sit in. Joë Descomps rose to fame in the late 19th century as an esteemed sculptor and jeweler in Paris. Descomps was unafraid to use dramatic curves and lines to create a sense of movement in his art. In his plique-à-jour enamel jewelry, the artist used bright color and sweeping motifs to convey a dynamic beauty; Descomps is also famous for his bold sculptures of female figures mid-dance. In this small vase, Descomps combined elements of the two media, jewelry and sculpture, to create a piece that moves between and beyond them. A similar vase is featured in The Paris Salons: 1895-1914, Vol V: Objets d'Art & Metalware, p. 20.

There are 300 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 16.00 carats. William Ruser was a much sought after Beverly Hills jeweler with the Hollywood set and his pieces were worn by numerous film stars on and off-screen in the 1940's through the 1960's. The distinctive Ruser style involved skillfully sculpted children and pearl winged angels, often seated on clouds of freshwater pearls and crowned with halos of tiny seed pearls, as well as less whimsical jewelry. He closed the doors to his shop in 1969, whereupon the property was bought by Van Cleef and Arpels which remains in the same location on Rodeo Drive today.
