Ref 06804 - Museal Art Deco Vase by Charles CATTEAU 1933 Kéramis

by Charles CATTEAU
Kéramis, La Louvière, Belgium - 1933


Design D.1792 - Form F.1054

This vase is very interesting for several reasons :

 - The design made in 1933 is extremely rare. Marc Pairon in his book Art Deco Ceramics made in Belgium - Charles Catteau, the reference book about Charles Catteau,
rates the rarity of this design as ***** : extremely rare or one-of-a-kind piece, so the highest level of the rarity scale !

- The form created in 1929 is rare too. Very pure with its large belt, three rounded stairs above and two other ones below

- We know only one other vase with the design D.1792 applied on a simplier form (F960). It was in the Yves Saint-Laurent - Pierre Bergé's collection. This vase is illustrated in the Marc Pairon's book
at page #462 in a matt enamel version

- So the shiny treatment of the cover of this vase was unknown by us. It gives this piece a very pure and elegant look

 Height : 32cm (12.6 inches), Width : 20cm (7.9 inches)

The condition is PERFECT !

Marked under the base :

"Gres Keramis"
"Ch. Catteau"
