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.
H 43.5cm x Dia. 25.5cm
H 17" x Dia. 10"
