PRIMAVERA Large Ceramic Stoneware Vase, 1923-1926

Large French Art Deco ceramic stoneware vase- Ref  12711

by PRIMAVERA (Paris)

at Sainte-Radegonde

France, 1923-1926

The mythological decor composed of Europa riding the bull, and an Amazon, a horse, in a typical plant decoration,

shows a return to René Buthaud's Persian inspirations of 1918

However, the drawing of the young women is totally in tune with his style from the early 1920s

The molded shape of the vase is prior to the arrival of Buthaud in Sainte-Radegonde

We meet it since 1920 with a decor by Peaudecerf & Girault (illustrated in "Primavera, 1912-1972, Atelier d'Art du Printemps" Edition Faton, 2014, page # 76, see photo)

Height : 32cm (12.6"), Diameter : 29cm (11.4")

Engraved under the base "Primavera France 480" (see photo)

The neck of the vase is slightly tilted as was often the case at Sainte-Radegonde

The mold seam is visible
