Claudius Linossier Dinanderie Vase


This richly earthen-toned mixed metal vase in the Art Deco style, by Claudius Linossier, exhibits the beautifully expert application of silver inlays on a combination of hammered brass and copper. The organically rounded vase appears timeless, perhaps ancient, perhaps modern, with refined scrolling decoration around the juncture between the two primary tones that would appeal to the eye in any decade, or century, for that matter.
