Decorated in bold lines and sunburst patterns, this Art Deco vase by Camille Fauré is crafted in the firm's signature style using colored enamel over a copper base. Fauré developed a technique of applying multiple layers of colorful enamel to copper forms, allowing the enamel to "build up," giving his works a unique tactile beauty. This, paired with his use of silver leaf underneath the enamel to produce shine and sparkle, gives this vase the unmistakable qualities of a 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 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.
