Crafted of stoneware and covered with a high fire sang de boeuf glaze, enlivened with streaks of blue and ochre. This tapered stoneware form is further adorned with vertical ribbing and tiny grommet-like roundels encircling the shoulder. This piece owes a great deal to the Asian influences that fired the imaginations of French ceramists during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Mark: inscribed artist's signature, Dalpayrat

About Pierre Adrien Dalpayrat

Adrien Dalpayrat began his career as a faïence painter, working at six manufactories between 1867 and 1888 before settling near Paris in 1889. There he devoted himself to stoneware, a material then held in high esteem by French art potters. Working alone and with collaborators, Dalpayrat produced a vast range of shapes and decorations. He was so well known for his oxblood flambé pottery that the term "Dalpayrat red" was coined to designate his distinctive glaze. Perfected in 1892, it is dappled or veined with greens, blues and yellows, and appears on pieces in the form of gourds, fruits, and shapes derived from Japanese bottles. [Source: Jason Jacques]
