This geometric vase by French decorative artist Camille Fauré is given its striking luminous quality by the firm's signature enameling technique. Richly colored enamels were applied to a copper form covered with silver leaf in layers of varying thickness. These layers range from almost translucent to opaque, letting the silver and copper shine through across the vase's surface to dramatic effect. A Fauré hallmark, this process sets these imaginative vases apart and heralded a revolution in the decorative arts.

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 produced 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 in London and the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
