Set of Four Ceramic Vases by Primavera (Circa 1930s)

Set of four black and green crackle-glazed ceramic Primavera vases by C.A.B. (Céramique d’art de Bordeaux) for Printemps (Circa 1930s). These sensuously curved vases with green coloured bases are covered by a cracked-effect metallic black enamel. The effect is delightful, captivating and extremely desirable to collectors of anything Primavera. In excellent vintage condition commensurate with  age and usage. Maker's marks on the bases.

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.
