About this piece

Turquoise glazed earthenware with a tight surface decoration of craquelure, a small flared opening mounted with later brass fittings.

Signed to base 'JB / France' & remnants of an old label.

France, circa 1930's

This simple glazed shape of table lamp seems to have been a collaboration between Besnard and Jacques Émile Ruhlmann (1879 - 1933). Florence Camard illustrates a single drawing in Ruhlmann's hand in her 2009 monograph; numbered 3301a it illustrates a working sketch for both the potter and the shade maker, though there is no indication of colour. We can also see the same model used in a photograph of 1932, this was Ruhlmann's stand at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs.
