just added in my collection last week end, this large majolica ashtray in art nouveau period. signed by BINET and "bx arts"
i've not found lot of artist called binet, one of them the most interesting was studing in paris art school and i think it could be this one.
RENE BINET, a french architect who study in paris "beaux arts" he is well know as the architect of the PARIS 1900 world exhibition, architect who designed the main entrance monumental door.
i think that this majolica is a student work (thats why it is mentionned "bx arts")....
i'm probably in the wrong way, but i've really not found any other binet who is in the right period and who was sculptor....
