French Art Deco Vase by Claudius Linossier

A rare French Art Deco ovoid-shaped vase by Claudius Linossier. This geometric vase is constructed with silver-domed brass heel and patinated fire decoration and silver inlays on a hammered brown background. Claudius Linossier (1893-1953) was a highly important French Art Deco metal artist who chose to work in the very old and very difficult technique of dinanderie, which involved decorating hand-raised copper vessels with specially-made metal oxides that were hammered into the surface, and, when heated, produced subtle and beautiful colors. For more information about Linossier and this technique, have a look at our bio of him. His pieces can be found in many museums and private collections. Bibliography: "Claudius Linossier dinandier" - Jean Gaillard, Lyonnaise Editions of Art and History, Lyon, 1994. Our vase, appearing on an archive photograph reproduced on page 166, referenced 605 (year 1925) and accompanied by a note of the artist: [Black vase, red copper, silver. 60 Dollars. Very beautiful ovoid shape]
