Vase by Clement Massier & Lucien Levy-Dhurmer
France, circa 1895
9" high

The vases by Clement Massier & Lucien Levy-Dhurmer are distinct from Amphora and Zsolnay because they mostly avoid forms that create a spectacle. With Massier/Levy-Dhurmer I think of the vase as a canvas for the glaze. I let my eyes wander over it like a painting to experience the beauty. Some of you might see similarities with Weller Sicard pieces. That is because Jacques Sicard worked for Clement Massier before Weller hired him in 1901.

    Thank you. I always enjoy a stroll through your items.

    The glaze surfaces on these are always lush and interesting. Nice large example! Are you going to post the bottom?

    I have lustre lust! A stunner!

    Thanks for the comments, folks.

    Hello Cogito,
    I usually don't post the bottom because I don't think it is interesting. In this case, I don't have a photo of the bottom but can take one and post it later. What are you curious about?
  5. cogito cogito, 6 years ago
    I generally like seeing the bottom of pieces, so I can mentally catalog the necessary features to look for when I'm out on the hunt (e.g., glaze characteristics on bottom, stilt marks, identification numbers, etc.).

    For the moment I can tell you that all the marks are impressed. They read from top to bottom:
    CLEMENT MASSIER (in an inverted V formation)
    GOLFE JUAN (in an inverted V formation)
    (A.M) (in a horizontal line)
    L LEVY (in a horizontal line)

    There are no other visible marks.

    Very helpful. I thought it looked like a Juan form I've seen before.
