Claudius Linossier Dinanderie Vase


By Claudius Linossier, this French Art Deco mixed metal dinanderie vase is composed of a rich earthen color ground that features a boldly decorative geometric pattern of alternating triangles and diamonds, circling the neck and the middle of the vase's body, with inverted triangular shapes rising from the rounded, subtly footed bottom. This important spherical vase, with its combination of hammered brass and copper, with rusty patina and silver inlays, is a exquisite example of his metalwork.

Claudius Linossier became an apprentice metal worker in his birthplace of Lyon when he was quite young, soon moving to Paris to continue his work as a silversmith, joining Jean Dunand for three months to study his techniques. Linossier did not stay working with silver for very long, however, as it was quite costly at the time, and he instead devoted himself exclusively to dinanderie.
