An artist working in the Art Nouveau style, Majorelle made a splash at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris and was one of the founders of the École de Nancy. This intricately patterned vase is exemplary of his work in wood and ceramic alike.

Louis Majorelle, the son of a furniture designer and manufacturer, was a decorator and one of the outstanding furniture designers of the Art Nouveau era. Successful in the production of historical revival furniture in the 1880s, it was not until the 1890s that Majorelle began to create pieces inspired by nature, with fluid lines, graceful inlays of blossoms and branches, and harmonious, custom-made hardware. At the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle, Majorelle's designs triumphed and became an international sensation. By 1910, the designer had opened salesrooms in Nancy, Paris, Lyon, and Lille.
