This vases are also from Carlos's collection. I've always loved them -well, only for the last two years and a half, when i first saw them- and tonight I've been able to identify them as made by Joseph L'Herminé Declercq. Don't you lobe when that happens? :)
I've been able to find little information about Joseph L'Herminé Declercq. He came from a family of ceramists. His brother Emile owned a earthenware factory in Rimbaud, Belgium, and in 1886 both created the Orchies factory in the north of France as they wanted to grow in the business. Orchies is placed by Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, a place famous for its argile and where there was another famouse factory since the 18th Century: Moulin des Loups.
By the way, this is the first other LD vase I've been able to find online. The funny thing is it's numbered 275, so i guess it's the previous model to our vases.
