Vase (France), ca. 1925

This is a Vase. It was designed by Jean Dunand. It is dated ca. 1925 and we acquired it in 2004. Its medium is raised brass, hand-painted lacquer, applied nickel (rim). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This archetypically art deco vase is both executed and designed by Jean Dunand, a designer known for his work with lacquer and enamel techniques.
This would be the first example of French art deco enameled metal by Dunand in the museum’s collection. Related objects in the museum’s collection at the time of proposed acquisition include two pieces of French art deco enameled metal by Camille Fauré; a wood, crushed eggshell, and lacquer table designed by Dunand; and four doors from the Guggenheim apartment in New York that were designed by Séraphin Soudbinine and executed by Dunand.

This object was donated by Linda Lichtenberg Kaplan and agent: Historical Design Inc.. It is credited Gift of Linda Lichtenberg Kaplan.
