About this piece
In the manner of Jean-Charles Moreux
Manufactured by Saint Gobain
The thick glass top table with sand-blasted hollow decoration depicting the vision of St. Hubert, resting on blackened wrought-iron circular frame on tripod legs representing horses. Slab signed 'Maron.'
France, 1930 - 1940
Very much in the manner of Jean-Charles Moreux, three wrought-iron horses, in abstracted late Art deco form, support a thick glass table top. With exquisitely realised technique and simple, linear formulation, the glass depicts a medieval scene showing St. Hubert pursuing a magnificent stag. As pious legend has it, the animal turns and he sees a crucifix sitting between its antlers.
During Hubert's religious vision, the stag is said to have lectured him into holding animals in higher regard and having compassion for them as God's creatures. With interesting contemporary flavour, Saint Hubertus is sometimes honoured among sport-hunters as the originator of ethical hunting behaviour.
