Ruhlmann Vase, n° 7

Date : 1931 | Medium : porcelain and stoneware glazes

The renowned cabinet maker and decorator Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann designed forms for the Sèvres Manufacture in 1927. This vase belongs to a series of seven, decorated specially for the 1931 Colonial Exhibition in Paris. The compositions, each one different, were created by the painter Mathurin Méhaut and were largely inspired by African fauna and flora.  The matt texture of the stoneware glazes used for the decoration provides a subtle contrast with the porcelain of the vases.
