We kindly suggest you read the whole description, because with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Spectacular large green glazed ceramic panther in Art Dèco style; the proud animal was depicted in its classic silent pre-attack stance, the whole body is in tension ready for the very quick deadly snap; a representation charged with strength and suspense; a classic example of Art Deco, which exalted in its artistic expressions the forms, strength, and power of both humans and animals. The object features very distinctive workmanship: the rough ceramic piece was first molded into its final soft and elegant form, then fired at about 1000° C, then an ancient technique was used by applying "crystalline" (a transparent vitreous coating) with an ox brush; then green glaze was distributed, again with a brush, over the entire body of the panther; the glazing stage requires a lot of skill, as it is important that the glaze is evenly deposited on the surface of the object, at which point, very quickly, in order to fix the glaze, the piece was put into the kiln between 920 and 940 degrees for the final firing. By looking at the underside of one leg (see photo, on the other legs we left protective felts) we can better understand this technique. The panther was made between 1930 and 1933 in the Luneville area (France) in the style of the Saint-Clement ceramics manufactory. Saint-Clement was founded in 1758 by Jacques Chambrette of Luneville; the history of pottery in the Lunévillois region thus dates back to the 18th century and the objects that are still produced in and around 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. Measures length cm.47, depth cm.12, height cm.17. Our panther is in good condition. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
