Edmond Lachenal Floral Ceramic Vase
Ranging in glazed hues of opaque greenish-whites to kelly greens to bright turquoise accents, this Art Nouveau ceramic vase by Edmond Lachenal features exceptional carved openwork in the shape of bunched but delicate, open blooms. The blooms circle the mouth of the vase, as their stems, tinged with turquoise, travel down its slope on a diagonal.

Edmond Lachenal was one of the pivotal figures in the development and creation of Art Nouveau in ceramics, and his works are comparable in influence and importance to those of Ernest Chaplet, Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat, and Albert Dammouse. His work is included in collections of Art Nouveau ceramics in the Louvre, Paris and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
