Luminous gold, orange and red enamels in spiraling designs adorn this Art Deco-era vase by Camille Fauré. A leader of the Art Deco movement in France, Fauré designed and produced modern geometric and floral decorative objects out of his factory in Limoges. There, he developed his signature hand-enameling technique involving layers upon layers of vibrantly colored enamels "built up" on the surface of copper vase forms, resulting in a tactile quality unique to Fauré's works.

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.

A very similar vase can be found on page 128 of Cork Marcheschi's book Camille Fauré: Impossible Objects.
