A group of graceful flamingos adorn the ovoid form of this enamel on copper vase by famed French decorative artist Camille Fauré. The vibrantly-colored birds, sitting in contrast against a deep red background, are rendered in great detail in a stylized marsh setting. The subject highlights Fauré's deep appreciation for nature, which is reflected in the firm's best pieces. This vase employs a technique involving hand-applied enamel on a copper form that gives the finished product a slightly raised surface and a painterly quality unique to Fauré.

One of the most celebrated enamelers of the Art Deco era, the workshop of Camille Fauré shifted not only the popular style of enamels in the traditional city of Limoges, but also the methods of creating these pieces. After apprenticing for several years, Fauré established his own workshop in Limoges at the turn of the century, where he helped to usher in a new era of decorative enamels. He exhibited at the 1925 International Exhibition in Paris that famously gave name to the emerging Art Deco movement. Known for the elaborate Art Deco vases it produced, Fauré also created a vast array of brilliant floral designs, upon which its success firmly rested. Fauré's works can be found in museum collections around the world, including The Victoria and Albert Museum (London) and the Corning Museum of Glass (New York).
