Round Ceramic Vase by Primavera (Circa 1930s)
Spherical black and green crackle-glazed enamel ceramic Primavera vase by C.A.B. (Céramique d’art de Bordeaux) for Printemps (Circa 1930s). The rounded shape is surprisingly gratifying and the surface so sensuously pleasing to the touch. The green and black patina seem to come from an age well before its time, like an ancient oriental vessel just discovered. The verdurous base with its cover cracked-effect black enamel is soothing, but the impression it leaves is exhilarating. A perfect object for the home or office for lovers of beautiful things and/or anything Primavera. In excellent vintage condition commensurate with its age and usage. Marked on the base: 'Primavera Made in France 8794'.
About Primavera: Primavera was the design studio of the iconic Parisian department store, Printemps. A collaboration between Printemps and René Guilleré, founder of the Société des Artistes Décorateurs, came into being in 1912 when Guilleré convinced store executives that the buying public was yearning for modern furniture and art objects produced by artisan workshops. His goal: to make beautifully designed utilitarian objects accessible to the public and to renovate the domestic household landscape. Primavera itself later formed a collaboration with C.A.B., (1919 - 1947), a start-up innovative ceramic atelier that only counted 20 workers and six ovens to create their wonderful ceramic objects. This collaboration gained both Primavera and C.A.B. a desirable notoriety for being on the cutting edge of design at that time.
