Particular and interesting glazed ceramic flower vase; it was made in Art Deco style between 1928 and 1930 in the Saint Clement ceramics factory in France; we must pay attention to the original manufacturing: the raw ceramic piece was first shaped into its final soft and elegant form, then fired at about 1000° C, then the ancient technique of immersion glazing in black enamel was used, the glazing phase requires a lot of skill, as it is important that the glaze is deposited evenly on the surface of the object; we then proceeded to a first firing to fix definitively the color; afterward the artist performed the external part with a particular and secret procedure to obtain the beautiful white enameling resembling a fresh glaze; a second firing allowed to obtain an original and unique vase. On the bottom is the Saint Clement company mark with the number 712 which identifies the model of the vase called "Boule". Saint-Clement was founded in 1758 by Jacques Chambrette of Luneville; the history of terracotta in the Lunévillois region thus dates back to the 18th century and the objects that are still produced in Saint-Clément are the fruit of this long tradition. In 1892, the factories of Lunéville and Saint-Clément joined forces and dominated the French pottery market. In 1923 the company was purchased by Edoard Fenal, son of the founder of the Badonviller earthenware factories. In the first half of the 20th century, with the arrival of the Art Deco movement, famous sculptors such as Geo Conde and Charles Lemanceau, and Blanche Letalle, collaborated with La Saint Clement creating wonderful decorative objects with an aesthetic inspired by constructivism and cubism. Measures diameter cm.22, height cm.20.
